    Nitrate Contamination of Ground Water The Earth's surface is covered by massive amounts of water, but only a small measure of it is safe for consumption. With a very limited supply, we need to focus our energies on preserving its quality and quantity. Nitrates pose a great threat to our precious groundwater. There are many ways that groundwater can be contaminated, but most aren't nearly as detrimental as an increase in the amount of nitrates within our groundwater. How do nitrates get into

    The Solubility of Potassium Nitrate Aim To investigate how the solubility of Potassium Nitrate is affected by Temperature. Background Knowledge Potassium Nitrate (KNO3) is an ionic compound. The strong ionic bonds hold the compound in an ionic lattice which gives KNO3 its crystalline structure. These ionic bonds also have other properties which will affect my investigation, I must be aware of these properties for greater accuracy in my method. The ionic bonds give KNO3 high melting

    depending on freshwater habitats to be safe homes. One of the main contaminants, nitrates, which spring from mainly manmade sources, are especially treacherous… Many people are unaware of the impact of nitrate ions in freshwater habitats. Nitrate presence is imperative for plant growth and development. This is because nitrogen is a key ingredient in the nucleic acid structure of plants. The natural level of nitrate concentration in freshwater is 1 milligram/Liter (mg/L). However, due to agricultural

    Nitrates contamination of the world's underground water supply poses as a potentially serious health hazard to the human inhabitants on earth. High nitrate levels found in drinking water has been proven to be the cause for numerous health conditions across the globe. If we intend to provide for the future survival of man, and life on planet earth, we must take action now to assure the quality of one of our most precious resources, our underground water supply. Ground water can

    Because of this plants are forced to obtain nitrogen in the form of nitrate and ammonium from the soil. Too much nitrate can cause a negative effect on the plant including nitrate toxicity. High levels of nitrate are not only bad for plants but can also be dangerous to animals or humans in their presence. Here I discuss the scientific evidence of the effects of nitrate accumulation on plants and the environment and argue that too much nitrate accumulation can be harmful to its surroundings. Nitrogen is

    result of people using ammonium nitrate as inorganic fertilizer. After WWII, America had a leftover supply of ammonium nitrate, which is a vital ingredient for manufacturing bombs. Ammonium nitrate is a chemical compound that consists of nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen. So rather than letting those resources go to waste, agronomists, or scientists who study the science of soil management and the production of field crops, suggested using the leftover ammonium nitrate as fertilizer for farming. The

    children, while injuring hundreds more. The bomb was made up of a deadly and potent mixture of two and a half tons of ammonium nitrate, a common farm fertilizer, and fuel oil then was packed inside the rented truck. The most frightening thing about this bomb was that its contents were cheap and very accessible to the public. Most gardening stores sell 50lbs bags of ammonium nitrate for $10. The substantial destruction from the bomb was luck more than anything. Former FBI bomb expert Denny Kline commented

    precipitation. In this lab, solutions of lead nitrate and potassium iodide will be mixed at a number of dilutions. The reactions will then be observed to see at which point a precipitate no longer occurs. Ksp will then be stated as a range of values at room temperature, and the precipitate test tubes will be heated until the precipitate is dissolved so that Ksp may be observed and determined at different levels. In this experiment various solutions of lead nitrate and potassium iodide were mixed at a number
