  • Acidic Rain
    753 words
    Acid rain looks, feels, and tastes just like clean rain, but there is a difference that is found on the pH scale. Acid rain is formed by one of three processes. In some cases hydrochloric acid can be directly let off into the atmosphere. Mostly nitrogen oxides or sulfuric dioxides are released into the atmosphere in the form of gases. After being released into the atmosphere, sulfur dioxide settle on the land and come in contact with dew that is also known as acid rain. Acid rain affects many di...
  • Chemical Reactions Molecule By Molecule

    Chemical reactions are the heart of chemistry. People have always known that they exist. The Ancient Greeks were the firsts to speculate on the composition of matter. They thought that it was possible that individual particles made up matter. Later, in the Seventeenth Century, a German chemist named Georg Ernst Stahl was the first to postulate on chemical reaction, specifically, combustion. He said that a substance called phlogiston escaped into the air from all substances during combustion. He ...

I did the exact same experiment, using a ten to one acid to base ratio after testing them with pH paper, carefully wrote down the results, and then cleaned all of the used equipment. I repeated this until I could find no other chemicals to test, and than I made my charts. Discussion The following documents the outcome from my experiments. You can find the rest of the charts el...

  • Sulphur Dioxide To Sulphuric Acid
    1,627 words
    Acid Rain What is acid rain? Acid rain is not a recent phenomenon. In the 17th century, scientists noted the ill effects that industry and acidic pollution was having on vegetation and people. However, the term acid rain was not coined until two centuries later when Angus Smith published a book called 'Acid Rain' in 1872 (Zumdahl 173). Acidic pollutants can be deposited from the atmosphere to the Earth's surface in wet and dry forms. The common term to describe this process is acid deposition. T...

    (1) Andrew J. Rickert Deadly Downpour An extremely deadly problem in our environment is acid rain. It causes plants and animals to die especially the fish in our waters. This deadly rain causes harm because we consume fish, plants, and water exposed to acid rain. Acid rain is a problem that we must all face together and try to control. Acid rain is caused by today's industry not to be confused with uncontaminated rain, which falls and causes a naturally slightly acidity. Products that are manufa...

  • Effect On Materials Acid Rain
    1,851 words
    Introduction: What Causes Acid Rain? One of the main causes of acid rain is sulfur dioxide. Natural sources, which emit this gas, are Volcanoes, sea spray, rotting vegetation and plankton. However, the burning of fossil fuels, such as Coal and oil, are largely to be blamed for approximately half of the emissions of this gas in the world. When sulfur dioxide reaches the atmosphere, it oxidizes to first form a sulfate ion. It then Becomes sulfuric acid as it joins with hydrogen atoms in the air an...

    CELLULAR METABOLISM AND FERMENTATION Glycolysis, the Universal Process | Anaerobic Pathways | Aerobic Respiration Glycolysis, the Universal Process | Nine reactions, each catalyzed by a specific enzyme, makeup the process we call glycolysis. ALL organisms have glycolysis occurring in their cytoplasm. At steps 1 and 3 ATP is converted into ADP, inputting energy into the reaction as well as attaching a phosphate to the glucose. At steps 6 and 9 ADP is converted into the higher energy ATP. At step ...
