How long does it take a diaper to degrade?
If it has plastic outside, the thickness of a plastic bag, that might take 5 years to degrade.
If it is filled with cotton, that would take 5 months to degrade.
What is it made of? Diaper with plastic coverings will never degrade completely. What happens is the plastic over months and years slowly breaks into tiny pieces, which remain in the soil, or are eaten by animals and insects.
how does it take for grabage to degrade
Plastics take hundreds of years to degrade...maybe more
Rubber takes 50 to 80 years to degrade.
Biodegradable plastic bags can degrade in a few weeks.
It takes two to three months for a milk carton to degrade
it takes 70 to 80 years for a tennis shoe to degrade..
Depends on the trash
We arent playing runescape items dont degrade after 10 hours of combat
Plastic straws, can take a century or two to degrade in landfills. http://eatingupgreensboro.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
400 to 800 years
about 5 weeks
It takes A diaper 355 year for a single baby's diaper to decompose. If you Have a baby, please recycle all of their diapers! Thanks!
wool sock -- 1 year
200 to 500 years
paper bag -- 1 month
Depending on the material, fabric can take varying amounts of time to degrade. A cotton shirt on a corpse for instance, can take approximately three months and four years to degrade.
200 to 500 years.
Depends (no pun intended!) on what type of diaper, whether you pee in it, and of course if you do #2, take it off immediatly!!
1 yearc or may be two it depends
Milliards of years by natural radioactive decay.
50-200 years, depending on the can material and the environment.
Disposable diapers can take as long as 550 years to decompose.
3 to 6 months if bacteria is present.
* tin can (soup or vegetable can) -- 80 to 100 years
cigarette butt -- 2 to 5 years
Last time I checked it was 10,000 years
I don't think diapers should be used in anger, however if diaper are used to curtale certain behavior, and it proves sucessful then great. I don't care if diapers are worn and to what age if someone really doesn't want to wear a diaper then short of punishment they should not be made to.
It depends on the quality, but a tin can takes 50 years, so it takes a long time.
Over 4 years !
In warm and wet conditions, just a few days.
550 or more years! http://www.thegoodhuman.com/2008/04/23/how-long-does-litter-take-to-disintegrate/
diaper dust is inside a diaper. it is a powder that will take out the moisture of a diaper so the diaper doesnt leak.
plastic do not degrade. If we bury plastic for years it will remain underground damaging under ground life. Actually, synthetic plastics DO degrade, they just do so very slowly. They do not "damage underground life", they simply take up valuable space in landfill sites because they take so long to degrade.
In a warm wet place, just a few days, but not the plastic filter tip.
Yes, because when you take it from the Barrow's coffin which has been in its coffin for so long it starts to degrade because of the oxygen. If it's been exposed to more oxygen outside it will degrade at a certain moment. So in my suggestion, you need to at least use it a few times then sell it at the Grand Exchange before it starts to degrade.
It depends what the fabric is. Cotton or linen, about 5 months. Any kind of polyester or artificial fabric like nylon is made from plastic materials so may last for hundreds of years.
* tin can (soup or vegetable can) -- 80 to 100 years * aluminum can (soda pop can) -- 200 to 500 years
Approximately 1 month, 22 days, 5 minutes, and 34 seconds.
honestly it depends on how much crack you smoke but i would still wear a diaper if i were you
On average I've heard it can take up to 2000 years to dispose of itself.
Depends on which metal. Also, it depends on what you mean by degrade. The metal molecules will never disappear, they will just disperse or get incorporated into molecules. But in general, a LONG TIME.
Yes of course just where a diaper for a long time with pee and poop.
Take the diaper out and wash the clothes again!
if you mean a Grozny bag than it will last about 500 years i think. better than none the less.
No, c6H6 Cant degrade the poly urethin due to their long chain of ethine polymers and monomer.
Non-biodegradable substances can last forever. Some substances are slow to degrade, but they still degrade over time. Those that are non-biodegradable should not degrade, even over long periods of time.
It can take several centuries before a car battery decomposes. Even after that, there may still be some components of the batter that may never decompose at all.
Well Oranges are very complex. They are usually confused with the color though they are different. It take 20- 30 years to bio degrade. OBAMA 2012!!
Computers and electronic devices contain a lot of different materials. Some take a long time to degrade naturally (such as metals), others take a very long time to degrade (such as plastics). Most problematic, however, are rare earth metals and heavy metals such as lithium, traces of mercury and similar substances, which can be poisonous when leaking into soil and ground water.
