Life On Mars Washington D C
1,018 wordsIf life ever evolved on any of the other planets, Mars is the likeliest candidate. After Earth, Mars is the planet with the most hospitable climate in the solar system. So hospitable that it may once have inhabited primitive, bacteria-like life. Outflow channels and other geologic features provide extensive evidence that billions of years ago liquid water flowed on the surface of Mars. Continuing changes is an accomplishment in modern American technology and it gives the world a step forward in ...

Carbon Dioxide Directly Proportional
1,251 words... le then existed he could not, and did not, determine the relationship between degree of hotness (temperature) and volume of a gas quantitatively. (Siebring, Richard, Page 32) Guillaume Amontons (d. 1705) developed the air thermometer, which uses the increase in the volume of a gas with temperature rather than the volume of a liquid. The air thermometer is an excellent demonstration of Charles' law because the atmosphere maintains a fixed downward pressure above a small mercury plug of consta...

Plants And Animals Earths Rotation
849 wordsWhat is required for a planet to be able to support life? This is a question that people have been trying to answer for many years. Earth is a very unique planet because it is the only one proven to support life. Living organisms need certain things in order to survive that are not found on any other planet. Some of these life supporting features include food, water, atmosphere, temperature, rotation, gravity, surface and a moon. First, living things need a source of food. Energy is needed in or...

Carbon Dioxide Plant Growth
835 wordsSoil, superficial covering of most of the earths land area; an aggregation of unconsolidated mineral and organic particles produced by the combined action of wind, water, and organic decay. Soils vary widely from place to place. The chemical composition and physical structure of the soil at any given location are determined by the kind of geologic material from which it originates, by the vegetation cover, by the length of time that the soil has been weathered, by the topography, and by artifici...

Paddle Pop Stick 2 Co 3 Flame
663 wordsExperiments to determine the identity of metals by examining the colour of flame when samples of that metal are heated. The aim of this experiment was to find out whether different metals had different reactions when subjected to the flame of the Bunsen burner. This might then allow the classification and identification of certain metals if they have their own reactions, which will be different coloured flames for this experiment. It was hard for me to predict what would occur during the experim...

Acid Rain Acid Deposition
561 wordsWhen thought of acid rain, some people may think of green, burning acid falling from the sky, destroying everything in sight. This may be a bit ridiculous and hard to believe, but as absurd as it sound, it is not far from the truth. Acid deposition has long been a subject of debate because of the widespread environ-mental damage it is responsible for. As one of the major results of air pollution, acid rain can corrode metal and limestone structures, leach important minerals, decreased fertility ...

United States And Japan Carbon Dioxide
573 wordsThis affects Canada a great deal because then the government has to regulate how much energy and gases can be used. Industrial, transportation, electrical and fossil fuel productions had the highest cases of emission gas releases in nineteen ninety-seven. Since the issue of the Kyoto Protocol, Canada is trying to cut down emission gases by twenty-six percent. Even recently, the Canadian government has put together an action plan so that they use renewable and alternative sources of energy that w...

Coal Mines Carbon Dioxide
792 wordsMethane by Pamela The molecule, methane, is made up of one carbon and four hydrogen atoms making the compound CH 4. It is the second most important greenhouse gas. One molecule of methane is twenty times more efficient at absorbing infrared radiation than a molecule of carbon dioxide (CO 2). The amount of methane is increasing about 1 % a year, faster than any other greenhouse gas. Recently, the concentration is 1. 7 parts per million (ppm), which is nearly twice of what it was a few hundred of ...

Burning Of Fossil Fuels Greenhouse Gases
888 wordsMany people disagree on the issue concerning global warming. Some believe that human activities, various forms of polluting, are the main cause of global warming. Others think that not only have humans not affected the planet by any significant amount, but that not much global warming has even occurred. Many scientists think that pollution is the cause of global warming and the greenhouse effect. There is a lot of evidence to support this theory. In the United States alone, almost 15, 000 pounds...

Greenhouse Gases Carbon Dioxide
285 wordsLike the glass in a greenhouse, certain gases that occur naturally in the atmosphere tend to trap the suns heat. This natural " greenhouse effect" helps keep the Earths average temperature at a comfortable 59? Fahrenheit. Without these greenhouse gases, the Earth would be about 0? F, like a deep- frozen snowball. But human activities are causing some greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, to build up in the atmosphere. Whenever we burn fossil fuels (gasoline, oil, coal or natural ga...
