There are several different "Oxides of Nitrogen" commonly formed in a internal combustion engine.

In laymen's language: Nitrogen will not normally bond with oxygen.

Modern engines burn fuel and Air at very very high temperatures and pressures. When Oxygen and Nitrogen are subjected to this the Oxides are formed.

The way they stop this is by Adding a little Exhaust gas to the intake air, this lowers the `Peak Burn Temperatures` just enough to reduce this. The diesel truck `DEF` fluid system does this also

If you need a scientist to explain the chemistry state that you need that type explination

Bacteria are important because they perform the essential processes of the nitrogen cycle such as ammonification, nitrogen fixation, and nitrification.

Certain plants like clover, soybeans, alfalfa, lupines, peanuts, and rooibos can perform nitrogen fixation.

Bacteria and plant roots perform nitrogen fixation, which allows plants to use the nitrogen. Nitrogen is used in cells to build proteins and DNA. However, plants get their nitrogen as "nutrients" in the soil.

There is nitrogen in the atmosphere but it is not useable to plants. So certain types of bacteria make the nitrogen useable to the plants, in order for them to perform photosynthesis.

depends what u mean...there r actual modifications for cars called "cold air intakes" in theory, the colder the air, the better the engine will perform bcoz the air is more dense and so more oxygen molecules in it. this is where nitrous comes in.....the actual nitrogen doesnt burn, but it is an extremely cold gas and simply "sprays" in more oxygen

The role of bacteria in the Nitrogen Cycle is to perform biological nitrogen fixation. This process is an important part of the Nitrogen Cycle because it converts oxygen into ammonia that plants are then able to use.

Plants called legumes. Actually it is the bacteria that reside in nodules contained in the legume's roots that perform the 'nitrogen fixation' biochemical process.

It eats insects so it can get nitrogen because it lives in an area where nitrogen is not abundant in the soil.

The organisms that perform nitrogen fixation are called diazotrophs. Examples of these organisms are bacteria, actinobacteria, and certain types of anaerobic bacteria.

Rebuilt engines are repaired as needed to perform to the rebuilder's standards. Remanufactured engines are completely rebuilt to OEM standards.

Bacteria are the only organisms that can convert nitrogen into a usable form. Diazotroph or nitrogen-fixing bacteria are types of bacteria that perform this ability.

It has to be fixed by things in the soil called nodules, so it can be a form that plants can use in order to get protein to perform photosynthesis.

bacteria and lightning- short and sweet!

Generally speaking, meta search engines perform searches using a conglomeration of other search engines. Metasearch engines enable users to enter search criteria once and access several search engines simultaneously. Metasearch engines operate on the premise that the Web is too large for any one search engine to index it all and that more comprehensive search results can be obtained by combining the results from several search engines. This also may save the user from having to use multiple search engines separately.
