    Carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of the primary greenhouse gas that release out through human activities. As indicated by Ozturk and Acaravci (2010), carbon dioxide (CO2) is responsible for more than 3/5 of the greenhouse effect that thusly adds to global warming and climate change. Since the Industrial Revolution, the nations of the world have been running to achieve higher economic growth at the cost of utilizing the natural resources. This competition of nations has increased in greenhouse gas emissions

  • Discuss The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Carbon Dioxide As An Alternative To Hydroflorocarbon

    931 Words  | 4 Pages

    Here we consider a recent article by Fukuta1 which discusses the usage of carbon dioxide (CO2) as an alternative to hydroflorocarbon (HFC) in refrigeration and heat pump cycles. CO2, a natural refrigerant, is non-toxic, non-flammable, and has good thermodynamic properties. The only disadvantage of using CO2 as a refrigerant is that the coefficient of performance of CO2 cycles is lower than HFC cycles, especially if the surrounding’s temperature is high. Therefore, an expander must be used in order

    converted to two pyruvate; consequently, the end products are two ATP molecules from substrate level phosphorylation and two NADH molecules. Then, NAD+ regeneration occurs, first converting two pyruvate to two acetaldehyde while also releasing two carbon dioxide molecules, and ultimately two acetaldehyde converting to the end product of two ethanol with the regeneration of two NAD+. It is important to indicate that the alcoholic fermentation process can be applied to the use of ethanol as biofuel. With

  • Essay On Green House Effect

    898 Words  | 4 Pages

    Enhanced greenhouse effect is the aftermath of the rise of atmospheric gases also known as greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and fluorinated gases in the Earth’s atmosphere. With the constant emissions of greenhouse gases being produced daily, there is an enormous imbalance being created that strengthens the greenhouse effect. Considering the fact that there are already greenhouse gases with the ability to trap heat that naturally occurs in the Earth’s atmosphere to help maintain

  • Reaction Experiment

    inaccurate timing as the reflect time to stop the stopwatch when 30cm3 of carbon dioxide is collected in 100mL measuring cylinder is often various from time to time. Time may be longer or shorter than the actual time taken to collect 30cm3 of carbon dioxide. This will then lead to the wrongly calculation of the rate of reaction as the formula of the rate of reaction is: Rate of reaction=1/(Time taken to collect 30.0cm³ of carbon dioxide (s)) Next, the sources of the random errors in this experiment are

    constant demand for oxygen and elimination of carbon dioxide. This is carried out in the gaseous exchange system. The gases first dissolve (in the fish and mammals) and then diffuse (in mammals, fish and insect) through a moist and thin, (thickness of a cell) semi-permeable membrane with a large surface area to volume ratio. Dissolved gases are transported by a circulatory system (in mammals and fish) to cells in the body. In insects, oxygen and carbon dioxide are transported directly to each individual

  • The Three Stages Of The Filvin Cycle And The Calvin Cycle

    1109 Words  | 5 Pages

    The C3 pathway is the Calvin cycle. The Calvin cycle has three stages. The first stage is when carbon dioxide enters into the Calvin cycle and is bonded to RuBP. This form a six carbon molecule which is further broken down create two PGA’s with three carbons. RuBP is important because of the carbon fixation that it performs. However it is more attracted to oxygen which leads to cellular respiration. In the second stage of the Calvin cycle PGA is further broken down into PGAL. In the third stage of

    much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas. A lot of the carbon dioxide that we release comes from means of transportation running on fuels and the fossil fuels that we burn for energy. The fossil fuels that we burn are primarily coal, oil and natural gas formed from the remains of dead plants and animals over hundreds of millions of years. Fossil fuels contain high percentages of carbon, so the burning of fossil fuels produces extreme amounts of carbon dioxide. This
