    formula of carbon dioxide is CO2. Carbon dioxide is a naturally produced nontoxic gas that has no smell. Carbon Dioxide is the most abundant greenhouse gas on the planet next to water vapor. In solid form it is commonly known as dry ice. It is a gas that is mandatory to the survival of most, if not all, living organisms on this planet. Terrestrial animals naturally create carbon dioxide in their lungs when the breathe out Humans alone do not physically or directly need carbon dioxide to survive though

    Carbon Dioxide is a colorless, odorless gas that occurs in small quantities in the earth's atmosphere naturally. The earth's ocean, soil, plants and animals release CO2. The formula of Carbon Dioxide is CO2. The CO2 molecule contains 2 oxygen atoms that each share 2 electrons with a carbon atom to form 2 carbon - oxygen double bonds. The atoms are arranged as so (OHT). This is called a 'linear molecule'. Carbon dioxide is commonly found as a gas and is never a liquid. It sublimes to a solid known

    Introduction Carbon dioxide is a gas at standard temperature and pressure.It is a crucial trace gas consisting of 397 ppm of the atmosphere on a molar basis (Petty 2004).There are many sources of production of carbon dioxide.For example, combustion of coals or hydrocarbons,from volcanic eruptions and places where carbonate rocks are located in the thin Earth’s crust.Other sources are the deep seas, commingled with oil and gas deposits.Large amounts of CO2 are released from electricity generation

    • 3 Pages

    INTRODUCTION: Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a key global warming gas that is proposed to have direct linkage to global climate changes [1, 2]. Therefore, there is a growing interest in developing technologies for efficient capture and sequestration of large quantities of CO2. An efficient and economical capture material is needed to capture and separate the CO2 produced during various industrial processes. There are four potential sources of carbon dioxide emission; industrial processes, fossil fueled

    INTRODUCTION The level of carbon dioxide has increased tremendously over the past few years by nearly 40%, that is from approximately 280ppm in preindustrial times to 384ppm in 2007(Solomon et.al 2007). Nearly one third of anthropogenic carbon dioxide is being absorbed by the oceans today(Science Daily, May 24, 2008) . Uptake of carbon dioxide by the oceans is not a harmful phenomenon , but excess of it leads to a reduction in pH thereby altering the fundamental seawater chemistry, commonly known

    The Effects of Burning Carbon Dioxide The main waste product of fuel we burn is carbon dioxide, which is thought to have been the main factor in the gradual rise of global temperatures of the last hundred years. The rise is called ‘Global Warming’. The mechanism used to explain the rise in temperature is the greenhouse effect. Infrared radiation is trapped by atmospheric gases. Sunlight easily passes these gases on it way into the earth’s atmosphere but on its way out the gases reflect the

    harness the carbon dioxide, nitrogen, make oxygen and be refined for biofuel. Cyanobacteria is the most common type of microalgae used for biofuel (“Massachusetts company making,” 2011) The biofuel from algae can be cost effective, only costing ten to twenty dollars a barrel to produce. However, there are still financial set-backs to the algae biofuel market (Pienkos, P., Laurens, L., & Aden, A., 2011). A french scientist has even invented a lamp of algae, which runs off carbon dioxide and produces

    Without carbon dioxide plants cannot photosynthesize. Through reading various books and web pages it was made clear that carbon dioxide is definitely one of the raw materials needed for photosynthesis, but I wanted to see whether this is actually true and if carbon dioxide is taken away completely will the plant photosynthesize at all? By taking a two plants of the exact same species, de-starching them both followed by putting plant one in conditions where carbon dioxide is taken away completely

    seventh warmest year in the GISS analysis.” Global warming has always been correlated by the increasing amount of greenhouse gases, which carbon dioxide is notoriously known for, in the Earth’s atmosphere. Many environmental activists are putting pressures to every facet of society and making them aware about the harm of the continuously increasing carbon dioxide emission that the world is experiencing. The Philippines is already starting to experience sudden extreme changes in its climate and natural

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) is produced either by natural sources, such as volcanic eruptions or human activities like deforestation that influence CO2 concentration levels. CO2 is essential for life on earth; therefore, it is important to regulate CO2 concentration levels derived from human activities. Further, the increases of CO2 exerted into the earth’s atmosphere for the past several thousand years are attributed to many CO2 sources induced by humans. CO2 Concentrations The Mauna Loa Observatory
