Carbon fibre-reinforced carbon (aka carboncarbon, abbreviated C/C) is a composite material consisting of carbon fibre reinforcement in a matrix of graphite. It was developed for the nose cones of intercontinental ballistic missiles, and is most widely known as the material for the nose cone and wing leading edges of the Space Shuttle orbiter. It has been used in the brake systems of Formula One racing cars since 1976; carboncarbon brake discs and pads are a standard component of Formula One brake...

Carbon Dioxide

Crystal Lewis 9/21/10 Period 1 Carbon Dioxide Carbon Dioxide is the infrastructure of all life on earth. Every human being and animal needs it to survive, making it an essential compound. In order to survive, humans and animals must give off carbon dioxide to take in oxygen, whereas plants must take in the compound and give off oxygen. Carbon Dioxide has numerous unique characteristics, properties, and safety measures that everyone should be aware of. Being aware of this compound and what it...

Carbon Sequestration

fuels, substandard emission techniques, and an ever growing population all play an intricate role of raising Earth’s overall temperature. Each can be linked through one key adversary, carbon dioxide. Rising CO2 levels are almost the sole reason temperatures are rising at such an alarming rate. Aside from water vapor, carbon dioxide is a chief ingredient in our Greenhouse Effect stew. It’s everywhere. It emits from our cars, it flies from our smokestacks, and it empties from our lungs. All of Earth is...

Allotropes of Carbon: Diamond and Graphite

allotropic forms of Carbon (Diamond and Graphite) Graphite and Diamond both are formed from carbon (two allotropic forms of carbon). Though they have similar constituent element, they differ a lot in their properties. Diamond is a good thermal conductor but a bad electrical conductor, while graphite is a bad thermal conductor but a good electrical conductor. This is one example of their property difference. The difference in their properties arises because of different arrangement of carbon atoms present...

Carbon Steels

Carbon steel is steel in which the main interstitial alloying constituent is carbon in the range of 0.12–2.0%. The American Iron and Steel Institute(AISI) defines carbon steel as the following: "Steel is considered to be carbon steel when no minimum content is specified or required for chromium,cobalt, molybdenum, nickel, niobium, titanium, tungsten, vanadium or zirconium, or any other element to be added to obtain a desired alloying effect; when the specified minimum for copper does not exceed 0...

The Carbon Cycle

http://www.ucar.edu/communications/gcip/m2ccycle/m2pdf.pdf The Carbon Cycle Importance of Carbon Cycle Carbon (C) is the fourth most abundant element in the universe and is found in all living substances as well as in many inorganic materials and is also the key element for life. The carbon cycle is the exchange of carbon among three reservoirs or storage places: the land, the oceans, and the atmosphere The atmosphere has the least amount of carbon, followed by the land with it plants and animals, also...

Carbon Dating

Chemistry Pg. 1 Carbon Dating Carbon dating is the most reliable, commonly used, and useful dating method, for what it can date. It is used to date late Pleistocene and Holocene artifacts and geologic events up to 50,000 years decayed. Carbon dating has been very beneficial to the scientific world, because it is used in so many different fields of science, including archaeology, geology, oceanography, hydrology, atmospheric science, and paleoclimatology. The radiocarbon dating method was developed...
