  • Carbon Dioxide and Deforestation

    DEFORESTATION INTRODUCTION: Deforestation‚ clearance or clearing is the removal of a forest or stand of trees where the land is thereafter converted to a non-forest use. Examples of deforestation include conversion of forestland to farms‚ ranches‚ or urban use. The term deforestation is often misused to describe any activity where all trees in an area are removed. However in temperate climates‚ the removal of all trees in an area in conformance with sustainable forestry practices—is correctly

  • Carbon Dioxide Gas

    Each tablet contains aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid)‚ citric acid‚ and sodium bicarbonate. As the tablet dissolves in water‚ the bicarbonate ions in the tablet react with the hydrogen ions from the acids that are also contained in the tablet. The carbon dioxide gas produced by the reaction is what causes the bubbling that can be observed. HCO3- (aq) + H+ (aq) → H2O (l) + CO2 (g) In this investigation‚ you will design two experiments which will compare two different factors that may affect the rate

    to the overall improvement of the environment. Forests have many important and varied functions‚ and to have a broad idea some of them are listed below: Forests are the renewable resources of nature. They are giant sinks of carbon: they absorb and assimilate carbon dioxide‚ which accounts for the majority of the greenhouse gases that are now accelerating global warming. They are home to living creatures‚ They contribute in maintaining biodiversity They regulate the climate They provide industrial

  • carbon dioxide in the atmosphere

    A. Identification of Pollutant in the Atmosphere Carbon Dioxide Carbon Dioxide is a colorless gas having a faint‚ sharp odor and a sour taste; it is a minor component of Earth’s atmosphere formed in combustion of carbon-containing materials‚ in fermentation‚ and in respiration of animals and employed by plants in the photosynthesis of carbohydrates. Though living things emit carbon dioxide when they breathe‚ carbon dioxide is widely considered to be a pollutant when associated with cars‚ planes

    Carbon Dioxide Understanding and Production in Elodea‚ Snail‚ and Goldfish Introduction This report discusses an experiment to study the rate of aerobic cellular respiration in aquatic organisms which are Elodea (aquatic plant)‚ Snail‚ and Goldfish‚ by measuring carbon dioxide production. Because ectothermic organisms (Elodea‚ snail‚ and goldfish) were placed in completely covered beaker‚ each organism would produce different amount of carbon dioxide. The objective of the experiment is to measure

  • Carbon Dioxide and Green Blue

    2: Aerobic Respiration in Beans We will evaluate respiration in beans by comparing carbon dioxide production between germinated and nongerminated beans. As shown in the balanced equation for cellular respiration‚ one of the byproducts is CO2 (carbon dioxide): C6H12O6 + 6 H2O + 6 O2 → energy + 6 CO2 + 12 H2O We will use a carbon dioxide indicator ( bromothymol blue) to show oxygen is being consumed and carbon dioxide is being released by the beans. Bromothymol blue is an indicator that turns yellow
