    thousand people fall victim to carbon monoxide poisoning and over one thousand five hundred die per year of this gas so deadly‚ it is referred to as the "silent killer"("What Is Carbon Monoxide?"). Carbon monoxide‚ or CO for short‚ is a flammable‚ colorless‚ odorless‚ tasteless gas that is produced during incomplete combustion of fuel and it’s ability to do harm resides within the lack of knowledge and understanding of this gas by society. To remain safe from carbon monoxide poisoning‚ one must comprehend

    Carbon Monoxide Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless‚ odorless‚ and tasteless gas that is slightly less dense than air. It is toxic to humans and animals when encountered in higher concentrations. Every year‚ at least 430 people die in the U. S. from accidental CO poisoning. It is also produced in normal animal metabolism in low quantities. In the atmosphere‚ it has a role in the formation of ground-level ozone. Carbon monoxide consists of one carbon atom and one oxygen atom‚ connected by a triple

    Carbon monoxide is a tasteless‚ odorless‚ colorless‚ highly toxic‚ and flammable gas. Its chemical formula is CO. Carbon monoxide is mostly formed from the incomplete combustion of carbon and/or molecules that contain carbon. Carbon monoxide is usually inhaled into the body when people smoke cigarettes or any other substances. When breathed into the human body‚ carbon monoxide alters the hemoglobin and thus puts a stop on the absorption of oxygen into the red blood cells. Carbon monoxide has different

    somewhere on time. Car emissions produce three types of carbon - Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and hydrocarbon (CH4) - which are traumatizing both our health and the environment. By itself‚ carbon isn’t a harmful element‚ but one of its characteristics is easily pairing up with majority the elements in the periodic table. Its ability to bond is infinite; it can create many different substances without any problems. Carbon Monoxide is a poisonous gas‚ that leads to severe poisonings
