  • Carbon

    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 and Its Compounds Carbon: Introduction Atomic Number: 6 Electronic Configuration: 2‚ 4. Valence electrons: 4 Property: Non-metal Abundance:- Carbon is the 4th most abundant substance in universe and 15th most abundant substance in the earth’s crust. Compounds having carbon atoms among the components are known as carbon compounds. Previously‚ carbon compounds could only be obtained from a living source; hence they are also known as organic compounds. Bonding In Carbon:- The Covalent

  • The Carbon Cycle

    The Carbon Cycle The element Carbon is the principle block for the organic compounds that make up life. This is because the study of the Carbon Cycle draws upon theories from biology‚ chemistry‚ geology and oceanography in order to understand the movement of carbon throughout the atmosphere‚ hydrosphere‚ and geosphere. Carbon is made up of four electrons that are able to form with each other; this causes the many different forms of carbon. The most popular form of carbon is carbon dioxide; this

  • Carbon Cycle

    Carbon Cycle Living organisms are significant in the recycling of numerous elements contained in an ecosystem. One of the elements is carbon. Carbon is nonmetal‚ forms over ten million different compounds‚ found in minerals‚ oceans‚ and is the main component of biological compounds. So how do living organisms and their biochemical reactions contribute to the recycling of carbon? Carbon moves through the ecosystem in a cycle‚ in which the living organisms take and release

  • Allotropes of Carbon

    one form. Carbon is one of the elements that contain many allotropes. Each allotrope of carbon has its own different properties. The allotropes of carbon are diamond‚ graphite‚ fullerenes‚ carbon nanotubes‚ carbon nanobuds‚ amorphous carbon‚ glassy carbon‚ lonsdaleite‚ and carbon nanofoam. Diamond is the best know allotrope of carbon. It is the hardest known natural mineral which makes it very rough. In the structure of the diamond‚ each carbon atom is covalently bonded to four other carbon atoms and

  • Carbon Cycle

    The carbon cycle shows how carbon is recycled -Carbon dioxide is taken in by plants in order to carry out photosynthesis and make food. -The carbon from the carbon dioxide is used to make carbohydrates‚ fats and proteins that make up the plant body. For example the cell wall of plants is made from cellulose - a carbohydrate. -Some of this carbon is returned into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide when the plant respires. When these plants are eaten by other animals this carbon becomes part

  • The Carbon Cycle

    The Carbon Cycle Poppy Matless Carbon is present in all living organisms. When organisms die‚ the carbon is recycled for future generations. 1. Carbon is released as CO2 via respiration and combustion 2. CO2 is absorbed by producers (grass‚ plants etc) 3. Animals feed off of the plant‚ passing on carbon throughout the food chain‚ losing some carbon as CO2 respiration. 4. When the animal dies‚ it is eaten by decomposers‚ and the carbon returns to the atmosphere 5. If decomposition
