Parts Per Million Degrees Centigrade
410 wordsUranium is a silvery-white element possessing a very radioactive and oxidizing character. Uranium retains a density of 19. 07 grams per cubic centimeter and a melting point of roughly 1, 132 degrees centigrade. With a boiling point of approximately 3, 818 degrees Celsius uranium is not an easy element to get to a melting or boiling point. The Periodic Table says that uranium has 92 protons and 146 neutrons thereby acquiring a atomic weight of 238 atomic mass units. Uranium burns readily in air a...

Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry Parts Per Million Water
1,290 wordsThe purpose of this experiment is to explore the hardness of the water on campus. Hard water has been a problem for hundreds of years. One of the earliest references to the hardness or softness of water is in Hippocrates discourse on water quality in Fifth century B. C. Hard water causes many problems in both in the household and in the industrial world. One of the largest problems with hard water is that it tends to leave a residue when it evaporates. Aside from being aesthetically unpleasing t...

Alternative Energy Sources Parts Per Million
1,972 wordsGlobal Climate Change Climate change is not a new concept; in fact there is evidence of major climate changes throughout the earths history. However since the industrial revolution and especially since world war two, there has been an unprecedented change in the earths atmosphere (Gates 4). As of March 1999, scientists reported the construction of a thousand-year record of the average temperature on earth. The results of their study concluded that a nine hundred-year cooling trend has been decis...

Burning Fossil Fuels Average Global Temperature
1,498 wordsGreenhouse Effect The greenhouse effect is a natural phenomenon that warms the earth and enables it to support life. Without it, the average temperature on earth would be around - 18 degrees C, instead of the current + 15 degrees C a frozen wilderness. It works on the same principles as the ordinary glass garden greenhouse, where glass allows light to get in, but does not allow for the heat to get out. This makes for a much higher temperature inside the greenhouse. On a planetary scale, similar ...

Carbon Dioxide Emissions Parts Per Million
2,377 words1. What are the Greenhouse Gases? Carbon dioxide (CO 2) is responsible for more than half the human contribution to the greenhouse effect, and concentrations have climbed steadily from around 280 parts per million at the dawn of the industrial revolution meaning 0. 028 percent of the air s volume is taken up by the gas to around 355 ppm today. As people burn oil, coal and natural gas, they release carbon that ancient plants in past geological ages absorbed and stored. 6 As cement workers process...
