  • Research Paper on Climate Change

    Global warming is also known as the green house effect‚ is a topic that has received much attention‚ in recent years; yet our Climate change is not a recent problem. Every year‚ almost 7 billion tons of carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere by human activity. Global warming is in the earth’s upper atmosphere directly caused by human burning of fossil‚ fuels‚ industrial‚ farming‚ and deforestation. Every year we see natural disasters that are extremely powerful. For example‚ In April of 2011

    Feasibility Study on Carbonated Drinks I. Introduction An effervescent drink that releases carbon dioxide under conditions of normal atmospheric pressure. Carbonation may occur naturally in spring water that has absorbed carbon dioxide at high pressures underground. It can also be a byproduct of fermentation‚ such as beer and some wines. Many curative properties have been attributed to effervescent waters (e.g.‚ aiding digestion and calming nerves)‚ but few have been scientifically

    themselves substantially hydrophobic in nature such as carbon dioxide‚ oxygen or ethanol. In the figure below the green triangle indicates a concentration gradient of carbon dioxide. The blue arrow indicates the direction of net flow of carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide penetrates the phospholipid bilayer without the aid of an intermediary molecule. You should be aware that the relative sizes of the molecules in this figure are not correct. The carbon dioxide molecules are much smaller than the phospholipids

  • Yeast Fermentation Lab Report

    because only 2ATP molecules are formed during the glycolysis. One type of fermentation is alcohol fermentation‚ it produces pyruvate molecules made by glycolysis and the yeast will break it down to give off carbon dioxide‚ the reactant is glucose and the byproducts are ethanol and carbon dioxide. In this lab‚ the purpose is to measure whether the changes of substrate concentration will affect the rate of anaerobic respiration. Because the rate of reaction refers to how quickly the reactants are used

    produced increases‚ as the light intensity increases‚ but only to a point. I predict this will happen because the plant will have enough carbon dioxide and water to keep up with the amount of light that there is. When there is less light intensity‚ photosynthesis will happen at a slower rate because gradually there will not be enough sunlight as there is carbon dioxide and water.

  • Essay on Global Warming

    world’s climate has been warming‚ primarily as a result of emissions from non -stop burning of fossil fuels and the razing of tropical forests. Since the industrial revolution till this day‚ there is a constant emission of the carbon into the atmosphere‚ everything we do we leave carbon footprints. It is a man made cause of the global warming. The global emissions jumped 3 percent in 2011 and are expected to jump another 2.6 percent in 2012‚ researchers reported. The greenhouse effect is a process by

Definition- The process in which green plants use the energy from the sun to make carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll 5. Steps to the photonthesis a. Planets pull the carbon off the CO2 and use the carbon in glucose. The plants do not need the oxygen for this because they get it from the water. b. Plants release the oxygen (o2) back into the atmosphere. c. Other organisms use the
