It weakens the trees ' natural defenses, making them more exposed to diseases. Acid rain removes soil nutrients such as magnesium and calcium from the soil. Also, due to the fact that the trees can 't absorb aluminum, acid rain can react with aluminum turning it into aluminum sulfate or aluminum nitrate. These substances can be absorbed by the tress and may affect them negatively. As a conclusion, acid rain is a global issue that is capable of ruining the balance of the food chain and also the balance of nature 's environment due to the facts above.
When this happens, some atoms of the mass are split, and the neutrons produced by those splitting atoms strike nearby nuclei of other atoms, causing additional fission to occur. (This is known as a chain reaction.) When these atoms split, immense energy is released as the devastating explosion of the bomb. The gun-type bomb can only be fueled by the uranium isotope, U-235. Little Boy was one of the atomic bombs that were assembled this way and was powered by U-235.
The waste produced by the power plant has the ability to seek into the main water supply and the soil, evidently making the sources radioactive. Threats have also presented itself of possible attacks on a nuclear power plant. The dangerous and lethal effects that if a nuclear power plant were to have a meltdown are extreme. The radioactive material has the ability to travel and expand further than a uranium nuclear blast. The death toll will increase as radiation will travel for miles and miles reaching places that are not in near of the power plant.
• Stirrer: A metallic rod that is used to thoroughly disseminate heat into the surroundings which helps to mitigate the errors of the bomb calorimeter. • Thermometer: the thermometer is used to determine the temperature of the surroundings before and after the reaction of the sample initiated. Uses of Bomb Calorimeter Bomb Calorimeter is used during chemical reaction to show the heat of combustion. It confirmed whether or not the tested product is eligible to be used as well as to determine its quality. Bomb Calorimeter is also being used in various different fields such as: • Thermodynamics Study Thermodynamics studies how heat changes to and from other energy forms.
Urbanization is a big threat that contributes to poor water quality in water pollution. The production of crops in residential areas are causing the Everglades to be drained and decreased in volume. The water flowing from the urban areas to the Everglades are polluting its waterways with pesticides and fertilizers which affect the biodiversity. If the water quality is higher today, then there will be a lower amount of species in the Florida
Trees hold the carbon dioxide in, so once they are damaged, they will release the carbon dioxide. Climate change is not only harmful to the environment but also to living species. Climate change can bring about droughts and to make matters worse, “deforestation encourages higher levels of water consumption for livestock and crops” (“17 Important Pros and Cons of deforestation”). There is this cycle that goes on, as deforestation continues to occur, climate change effects become more prominent since it can result in more utilization of water. This will then cause less water to be available, and result in climate change creating droughts; the environment is getting damaged.
Several efforts have been made over recent years to maintain a safe and clean environment. However, environmental pollution is getting worst and poses a major threat to the Earth. Environmental pollution is “the contamination of the physical and biological components of the Earth to such an extent that normal environmental processes are adversely affected” (Kemp, 1998, p. 129). There are five known pollution which is in the form of air, water, land, noise and light (refer to Figure 1 in Appendix 1). The first type of pollution is air pollution.
Find an Atomic Shelter, fast! An Atomic Bomb is a powerful nuclear weapon used in WW2. Atomic Bombs are mostly used for destroying the enemy in one swoop, because of its massive explosive destruction. For example, the USA used two Atomic Bombs at the end of WW2, which resulted in the destruction of Hiroshima, located on the eastern end of the Chugoku-Sanji mountains. When an Atomic Bomb explodes above land it will produce a small crater, but a large amount of smoke.
Nuclear Fission is a process that was discovered by German scientists, Otto Hahn, and his assistant Fritz Strassman on December 17, 1938. Nuclear Fission is a process in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts. This will release free photons and neutrons, and releases a large amount of energy. If this energy is controlled, it can be used for nuclear energy for nuclear power plants. On the contrary, this process can be used uncontrollably in atomic bombs, such as the ones dropped in World War II.
Water pollution is a very prevalent problem throughout the world. It affects ecosystems, deters the natural food chain, and can cause disease in both animals and humans. But is water pollution affecting natural lakes and ponds in local areas? In this experiment, Daphnia magna will be used in a bioassay to find if water from local areas is habitable for aquatic organisms. Daphnia magna are small freshwater invertebrate organisms.
