    COMBUSTIOn & carbon Dioxide Research By Rab on Hutcherson II. Combustion and carbon dioxide, what are they When people think of combustion they probably think of simple just bursting into flames; and for carbon dioxide you probably think of what we breath out and what plants take from the air and turn to oxygen. Even though these thoughts are true there is much more to combustion and carbon dioxide. Things you might not think of about combustion are, mathematical equations, models, solutions and...
  • Bicarbonate A Good Buffer For Blood
    356 words
    Bicarbonate: A good buffer for blood Most carbon dioxide generated during metabolism is transported in the form of bicarbonate ions, which result from the dissociation of carbonic acid formed in the red blood cells from the chemical union of carbon dioxide and water. Hydrogen ions from the dissociation are bound to hemoglobin and other proteins, serving to buffer the blood. The entire process is reversed when blood enters the lungs, allowing free carbon dioxide to diffuse into the environment. O...

    Many people today use exercise as a way to better their health and their lives, but the stress from exercising can put a strain on your body. As we exercise the glucose in our bodies break down and in turn produces CO 2 and H+ due to the body's metabolism become more active. At the same time, our muscles use up oxygen. Together these processes can cause a chemical change in our blood, which results in a drop in pH. This chemical change affects the homeostasis in our body. Homeostasis is the mai...
  • Caves Cave Form Formed

    Formations and Types of caves A cave is a chamber beneath the surface of the earth or in the side of a hill, cliff, or mountain. Caves vary in size and shape, and many have large openings to the surface. There are many types of caves, such as: ice caves, solution, wind, gravity-slip-block caves, fissure or rift, talus, sea, and lava tube caves. Gravity-slip-block and fissure or rift caves from in areas where there is tectonic movement, generally at faults. Sea caves form in rocks adjacent to the...
  • Urease Ammonium Carbonate

    An experiment to determine the amount of urea in a specimen of urine. Introduction. Metabolism produces a number of toxic by-products, particularly the nitrogenous wastes that result from the breakdown of proteins and nucleic acids. Amino (NH 2) groups are the result of such metabolic reactions and can be toxic if ammonia (NH 3) is formed from them. Ammonia tends to raise the pH of bodily fluids and interfere with membrane transport functions. To avoid this the amino groups are converted into ur...
