    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

  • Producing Carbon Dioxide from a Metal Carbonate

    1137 Words  | 3 Pages

    Producing Carbon Dioxide from a Metal Carbonate Metal Carbonate Metal Oxide + Carbon Dioxide Thermal decomposition ‘is when a substance breaks down into simpler substances when heated, often with the help of a catalyst. It’s different from a reaction because there’s only one substance to start with’. I came across this information in the EDEXCEL Modular Science revision guidebook 1. Thermal decomposition is the breakdown of a substance using thermal energy, this is not a reaction.

  • Carbon Dioxide Is Essential For Life On Earth

    1092 Words  | 3 Pages

    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

  • The Effects of Increase Carbon Dioxide on Children

    670 Words  | 2 Pages

    Although it is known that greenhouse gases are necessary for the survival on earth, without these greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide the earth would be lifeless. However, we still have to deal with anthropogenic causes which drastically intensified the greenhouse effects in the atmosphere. These anthropogenic causes such as burning fossil fuels increase carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions while producing coal, oil and gas. In climate change, environmental hazards will often increase and cause change

    1361 Words  | 3 Pages

    Carbon dioxide or CO2 is known to be one of a number of gases that are astonishingly transparent to the visible light that falls on the Earth from the Sun, but it absorb the infra-red radiation that emitted by the warm surface of our Earth, to prevents its loss into space. Moreover, CO2 has varied considerably and this affected the Earth’s temperature. Most common source of this CO2 is known as the fossil fuel. Fossil fuels are primarily coal, hydrocarbons, natural gas, or fuel oil that formed from
