What is the site of carbon dioxide loading?

- carbon dioxide is released in the atmosphere: - part of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is absorbed by the biosphere - part of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is absorbed by body of waters


What are some items that emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere?

Anything that is part of the carbon cycle releases carbon dioxide which moves in and out of the atmosphere, trees, oceans, animals and land.Anything that is part of the fossil fuel (coal, oil and natural gas) industry releases carbon dioxide most of which remains in the atmosphere, building up. Examples are: factories, vehicles and power plants.


What does oxygen become in cellular respiration?

Is sulfur dioxide part of carbon dioxide?

No. Sulfur dioxide is sulfur and oxygen. Carbon dioxide is carbon and oxygen. They are two different substances.


Where is carbon dioxide coming from?

Carbon dioxide moves in and out of the atmosphere, the oceans, animals, trees and the soil as part of the carbon cycle, which neither creates nor destroys carbon. Additional atmospheric carbon dioxide comes from the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas). This burning releases carbon that has been safely stored underground for 300 million years.


How does respiration affect the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere?

Respiration, breathing, has no effect on the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This is part of the natural carbon cycle. Burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) releases carbon dioxide that has been hidden away for millions of years. This extra gas is increasing in the atmosphere.


What is the smallest part of carbon dioxide?

The smallest particle of carbon dioxide is a carbon dioxide molecule with the formula CO2, which means there are one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms in a molecule of carbon dioxide.


How does burning affect the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere?

Burning anything releases carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, as most things are largely made of carbon. Burning vegetation is really part of the carbon cycle, but burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) in industry, transport and the generation of electricity, releases carbon dioxide that has been sequestered underground for 300 million years. This is why carbon dioxide levels are increasing in the atmosphere.
