 Oxygen – Carbon dioxide Cycle The Carbon Dioxide- Oxygen Cycle relates to the relationship between Carbon Dioxide [CO2] breathing plants and Oxygen [O2] breathing life forms. All oxygen-breathing life forms take in Oxygen and exhale CO2. Plants take in the CO2 and use it in their photosynthesis process and in turn give off oxygen. The Carbon Dioxide-Oxygen Cycle is a continuously occurring process whereby animals inhale Oxygen and then exhale carbon dioxide, and plants use the CO2 and "exhale"...

oxygen cycle

Oxygen Cycle Required for Life  All living things use oxygen or depend on organisms that use oxygen in some way. All Animals and Other Consumers Use Oxygen  We use oxygen to break down simple sugar and release energy.  This can be done through respiration or fermentation.  Animals mainly use respiration. Respiration  The process that breaks apart simple food molecules to release energy.  It occurs inside cells.  What YOU do with the oxygen...

Oxygen and Trees

medicinal products such as quinine and eucalyptus. In fact, most of the medicines that we use ultimately come to us through trees and vegetation. Trees play an important role in purifying the air around us. They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen that sustains our life. Thus they make this world a better place to live in. Trees are also very necessary for having good rainfall. The trees attract rain bearing clouds and prevent soil erosion and conserve the earth. Our Government also realised...

Oxygen and Oxidation

REDUCTION Oxygen makes up only about 20% of the air, yet is the essential component for so many reactions. Without it fuels would not burn, iron would not rust and we would be unable to obtain energy from our food molecules through respiration. Indeed animal life on the planet did not evolve until a certain concentration of oxygen had built up in the atmosphere over 600 million years ago. The term oxidation has been in use for a long time to describe these and other reactions where oxygen is added...

Oxygen and Ibuprofen

slightly positive end and a slightly negative end. This allows the drug to have a permanent dipole moment. The diagram below explains how the oxygen in this molecule is also the most electronegative atoms. The molecule also contains a double bond. These properties are made evident on the density surface and with the dipole moment. The reddest area is at the oxygen molecules and the double bond. The dipole moment arrow also points in the direction of these atoms. Ibuprofen dipole moment is 4.69 Debye...

Work Rate and Oxygen Uptake

The Relationship Between Work Rate And Oxygen Uptake During Incremental Submaximal Exercise Introduction Oxygen uptake () describes the rate at which oxygen is utilized by tissues (Burton et al, 2004). is determined by heart rate (heart beats each minute), stroke volume (the volume of blood pumped from one ventricle each beat) and arteriovenous oxygen difference (difference in blood-oxygen content between arterial and venous blood). Oxygen is needed for respiration, the chemical process that...

Phosphates and Dissolved Oxygen

waters, such as lakes and streams. Phosphates are essential to aquatic plant growth, but too much phosphate can lead to the growth of algae and results in an algae bloom. Too much algae can cause a decrease in the amount in dissolved oxygen in the water. Oxygen in water is affected in many different ways by phosphates Phosphorus is usually present in natural waters as phosphate(Mcwelsh and Raintree, 1998). Phosphates are present in fertilizers and laundry detergents and can enter the water from...

Oxygen Requirements of Bacteria

Oxygen Requirements of Bacteria BACKGROUND  The GasPak system is useful for culturing anaerobic bacteria on standard microbiological media because the GasPak generates carbon dioxide and hydrogen. The hydrogen will combine with oxygen present in an anaerobic jar to produce water. This system can reproducibly attain oxygen levels in the parts per million range if used correctly. This is the best method for determining the oxygen requirements of unknown organisms.  A candle jar is useful...

Cyanobacteria: Oxygen and Aerobic Respiration

use it to produce nutrients for the cell. During this process, water molecules are broken down into oxygen and hydrogen atoms which are then released in the air. In the very early days of life, Earth was populated only by anaerobic bacteria that didn’t need oxygen to survive. When cyanobacteria first made their appearance and started engaging in their photosynthetic reactions, large amounts of oxygen were suddenly released in the atmosphere. This lead to what is known as the Great Oxygenation Event...
