    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...

    Danger in the Air At North Intermediate School in Wilmington? Is there danger in the air at the North Intermediate School in Wilmington? Apparently carbon dioxide levels have been found to be above acceptable levels in some class rooms. According to a report dated Dec. 9, 1996, by ATC Associations, an independent consulting firm hired by the Town of Wilmington to conduct Indoor Air Quality and Microbiological testing at the school. "All indoor air quality parameters were within normal guideline ...
  • Acid Rain Sulfur Dioxide
    1,927 words
    Normal rainfall is slightly acidic because carbon dioxide in the atmosphere dissolves in the raindrops to produce hydrogen ions. Yet, normal rainfall is not considered acid rain. Acid rain is a form of air pollution in which airborne acids produced by electric utility plants and other sources fall to Earth in distant regions. The corrosive nature of acid rain causes widespread damage to the environment. The problem begins with the production of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides from the burning...
  • Global Warming And Its Causes
    2,291 words
    Global Warming Global warming is the warming near the earth's surface that results when the earth's atmosphere traps the sun's heat. The earth is getting warmer. The changes are small, so far, but they are expected to grow and speed up. Within the next fifty to one hundred years, the earth may be hotter than it has been in the past million years. As oceans warm and glaciers melt, land and cities along coasts may be flooded. Heat and drought may cause forests to die and food crops to fail. Globa...
  • 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...

    Bush Won't Regulate Carbon Dioxide Updated 7: 30 PM ET March 13, 2001 By SCOTT LIND LAW, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Backing off a campaign pledge, President Bush told Congress Tuesday he will not regulate carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. The decision, outlined in a letter sent to a Republican senator, came after furious lobbying from the coal industry. It was a blow to conservationists who see curbing emissions of such "greenhouse gases" as key to reducing global warmin...

    Biology Lab Report Investigating Alcoholic Fermentation and the Affects of Yeast on Dough Aim: The aim was simply to investigate whether or not yeast had any affect on causing dough to rise when baked and to experiment with alcoholic fermentation eg. to see if it gave off carbon dioxide. Introduction: Following a few weeks of fermentation theory, groups of three to four were assigned and told to conduct a series of experiments involving the affects of fermentation. My group consisted of myself, ...
  • Acid Rain Air Pollution Dioxide

    Acid rain is considered by many people to be one of the most serious environmental problems of our time. It is a global problem that is slowly eating away at our world. Angus Smith came up with the word acid rain when he wrote about pollution in England. Most rain is naturally acidic because of the carbon dioxide (CO 2) in the air that dissolves with rainwater and forms a weak acid. This kind of acid in the rain is good because it helps dissolves minerals in the soil that both plants and animals...
  • Greenhouse Effect Carbon Dioxide
    494 words
    GREENHOUSE EFFECT The glass windows of a greenhouse let in sunlight. The sunlight warms up objects inside the greenhouse. These objects then give off heat. The glass of the greenhouse, however, does not let out the heat. If the greenhouse lacks ventilation, all the heat stays locked inside and the temperature rises. This greenhouse effect also causes the inside of an automobile to become hot if its windows remain closed on a sunny day. The Earth and its atmosphere are like a giant greenhouse. L...
  • Green House Effect Carbon Dioxide
    686 words
    The Greenhouse Effect The Earth is kept warm by it's atmosphere, which acts rather like a woolly coat - without it, the average surface temperature would be about -18 degrees Centigrade. Heat from the sun passes through the atmosphere, warming it up, and most of it warms the surface of the planet. As the Earth warms up, it emits heat in the form of infra-red radiation - much like a hot pan emits heat even after it's taken away from the cooker. Some of this heat is trapped by the atmosphere, but ...
  • Respiratory Carbon Dioxide

    The Respiratory System The Respiratory System is made up of the nose, pharynx, larynx, bronchi, and lungs. The respiratory system is the system of the body that deals with breathing. When we breathe, the body takes in the oxygen that it needs and removes the carbon dioxide that it doesn't need. Throughout the Respiratory System, enjoy beautiful forests, plains, and wonderful weather. Function: Provides gas exchange, intake of O 2 for delivery to body cells and elimination of CO 2 produced by bod...
  • Global Warming Carbon Dioxide

    Global warming occurs when the levels of greenhouse gasses rise and less infrared light, or heat, escapes the earth's atmosphere. Thus, the temperature experienced on Earth begins to rise. Climate change is a part of the Earth's history. There have been dramatic fluctuations in overall average temperature for the past 150, 000 years that suggest a direct association with carbon dioxide levels. In the past the temperature highs and lows have been in tandem with carbon dioxide level highs and lows...

    Global Warming is a big problem in today s society. Global Warming also known as the Greenhouse effect is a problem everyone will soon have to face. The people of the younger generations should be educated about what Global Warming is and that it is caused due to the way people are treating the environment. We are now entering the Greenhouse century as we know it. Planet Earth is estimated to be 4. 5 billion years old, and life on earth has existed for more than 3. 5 billion years. Humans have ...

    Pollution is one of the most worrying problems of our time. This problem surfaced during the industrial revolution. The great industrial revolution brought about many positive changes to the world; better transportation, cheaper products, and a better life. However, with it's riches came the price, pollution. At the beginning of the industrial revolution, no one paid any attention to the problem of pollution. As the science, progressed people started to realize this problem. Air pollution arise...

    Weather satellites make it possible for meteorologists to closely watch our atmosphere and its weather. One of the more frightening findings over the last several decades is that the ozone layer in our upper atmosphere appears to be getting thinner. Scientists believe that the thinning ozone is due to certain chemicals that our society is producing. Chemicals know as chlorofluorocarbons (or CFC's for short) are used in air conditioners, refrigerators, styrofoam packaging, and insulation. For man...

    Joseph Black was best known for his discovery and chemical activity of carbon dioxide. Black was born in Bordeaux, France, and went to school at the universities of Glasgow and Edinburgh in Scotland. He was professor of chemistry, medicine, and anatomy at the University of Glasgow from 1756 to 1766. He became a professor of chemistry at the University of Edinburgh. In about 1761 Black discovered latent heat, and three years later he measured the latent heat of steam. His student and assistant J...
