Greenhouse Gases Greenhouse Effect
832 wordsWhen a person starts their car or does a very small and simple thing the last thing that they are thinking of are the consequences it has to the atmosphere. Because of the continuous changing of the society, the earth has to get used to several different problems. Even though the atmosphere is known to be good because it protects us from the deadly radiation from the sun, it also takes that same heat and engulfs the earth in it. The greenhouse effect refers to the light energy that is trapped by...

Hydrogen Peroxide Degrees Celsius
539 wordsCatalase Which Is Found In The Liver' Introduction: Enzymes are biological catalysts. They speed up the chemical reactions which go on inside living things. Without them the reactions would be so slow that life would grind to a halt. Enzymes work by when a substrate molecule bumps into a molecule of the right enzyme, it fits into a depression on the surface of the enzyme molecule. This depression is called the active site. The reaction then takes place and the molecules of product leave the acti...

Carbon Dioxide Fossil Fuels
1,092 wordsIn talking about global warming, we need to learn what causes the greenhouse effect. Rays from the sun are taken up and absorbed by water vapor that is natural in the atmosphere. The United States emits the largest manmade greenhouse gases in the world. As Americans we must realize the responsibility to reduce the emissions. (Gore, Albert) Water Vapor is eighty percent of greenhouse warming. The last twenty percent results from other gases that are in very little amounts. A huge absorber of the ...

Life On Earth B And C
1,459 wordsCarbon dioxide is a colorless, odorless, non-toxic, and slightly acid-tasting gas. Sometimes referred to as a carbonic acid gas, the molecule consists of one atom of carbon joined to two atoms of oxygen. It occurs naturally in the atmospheres of many planets, including that of earth. Carbon dioxide is uniformly distributed over the earths surface at a concentration of about 0. 033 %, or 330 parts per million. It was called fixed air by the Scottish chemist and physician Joseph Black in the 1750 ...

Coral Bleaching Coral Reefs
1,512 wordsImagine yourself observing one of the most diverse ecosystems on earth. Thousands of species of plants and animals provide a dizzying array of color and motion. Massive structures provide a canopy that shelters hundreds of exotic species in a myriad of microclimate's. As land-based observers, we almost automatically assume that this is a description of the rich ecosystem of a tropical rainforest. However, if we take ourselves off the safety of dry land and immerse ourselves in the ocean, we will...

Crown Of Thorns Coral Reefs
3,746 wordsCoral reefs are among the most varied and productive communities on Earth. They are found in the warm, clear, shallow waters of tropical oceans worldwide. Reefs have functions from providing food and shelter to fish and invertebrates to protecting the shore from erosion. Unfortunately, as our understanding of corals and coral reefs increases, it becomes apparent that the effects of the human population on these communities may be increasing as well. Reef-building (or hermatypic) corals are of th...

1,031 wordsAim: Dunder Experiments Experiment 1. Aim: To find the PH of Dunder. Materials: -Crucible -Filtrated Dunder -Universal Indicator -Eyedropper Method: A small amount of filtrated Dunder is placed in the Crucible. A few drops of Universal Indicator are then dropped onto the Dunder with the Eyedropper. The mixture will then change to colour corresponding to the Dunder's PH. Results: In this Experiment the PH of the Dunder came up as 4. This showed that Dunder is considerably acidic. Experiment 2. Ai...

1,993 wordsEffects of Temperature, pH, and Gelatin on Bromelain Introduction Bromelain is an organic catalyst that speeds up the rate of chemical reactions. Bromelain is used in this experiment to catalyze the break down of proteins and is called a proteolytic enzyme. Enzymes enable reactions to occur at a lower temperature and energy levels. This allows many reactions to occur inside living organisms that would otherwise have been impossible to take place. This enzyme is found in fruits, leaves, and stems...

Nicholas Cugnot made the first self-powered road vehicle in 1769 with a steam engine, and the first gasoline automobile didnt appear until over 100 years later from Karl Benz. Through the late 19 th and early 20 th century steam and electric power remained strong contenders. The i...

Speed Of Light Degrees Celsius
1,124 wordsThe Properties of Light Applied to Fibre Optics One of the basic properties of light is that it travels in straight lines and can have it? s direction changed. This is the property which is applied to achieve the purpose of Fibre Optics which is to carry light from one place to another. The way this is done can be explained by the principle of refraction. This is the principle which governs the behaviour of light as it passes from one transparent substance to another. It states; if a ray of ligh...

Carbon Dioxide Ozone Layer
1,519 wordsIn environmental science the green house effect is a common term for the role water vapor; carbon dioxide and ozone play in keeping the earths surface warmer than it would normally be. The atmosphere is primarily transparent to infrared radiation from the sun, which is mostly absorbed by the earths surface. The earth being much cooler than the sun, remits radiation most strongly at infrared wavelengths. Water vapor, carbon dioxide and ozone then absorb much of this radiation and remit a large pr...
