How many tons of carbon dioxide are equivalent to one ton of carbon?
You must determine how many grams are in a tonne. You then must then use the molecular weight of carbon to determine the moles of carbon in that many grams (i.e. (grams C)/(M.W. of C)). As there is one mole of Carbon in each mole of carbon dioxide, then multiply the resulting moles of carbon by the molecular weight of CO2 and you will have your answer.
One metric ton (tonne) of of carbon is equivalent to approximately 3.66 metric tons (tonnes) of carbon dioxide.
Emission of one ton of CO2 is avoided by growing 40 tropical trees for one year. Does that answer your question? If it doesn't, then you can refer to the links (below) for more information. The calculator site coverts one ton of CO2 to some easy to understand units.
It varies depending on the type of tree, age of tree, location etc., But, an useful ballpark number is about 5-6 trees over a period of 30 years would be sufficient to offset 1 ton of CO2 emissions.
Who cares? Carbon emissions aren't causing "global climate change" anyway. The earth's climate has changed dramaticly in the past way before there were any man-made machines. It's doing it again regardless of what we humans do or don't do.
A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. It takes 40 years for one tree to absorb 1 ton of carbon dioxide. A half an acre of trees could absorb 1 ton in approximately 1 year.
in literal terms, it is equivalent to 1 ton of anything else
There is one carbon per every carbon dioxide molecule. They're are also two oxygen molecules in carbon dioxide.
Much of the additional atmospheric CO2 each year comes from burning coal for electricity. Automobiles are a close second to that, however. Current production is about 32 billion barrels of oil per year. There are 6 to 8 barrels per ton, averaging 4.5 billion tons per year. Not all this oil is used for automobile fuel, some of it is used for lubricant, manufacture of plastics, and so on. The US consumes about 134 billion… Read More
Answer 1: 530,000 million tons of annual carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.Answer 2: The number I have calculated and seen widely reported elsewhere is closer to 30 billion tons, or only 30,000 million tons, at least from human activity.
accordine to edi energy a tonne of oil produces 7,895 lbs per tonne
This number is approx, 36,132.10ex23 molecules.
Multiply by avagadro constant. It is equals to 6.022*1^23
The gram molecular mass of carbon dioxide is 44.01. Therefore, 454 grams constitutes (454/44.01) or 10.3 moles, to the justified number of significant digits.
44g of carbon dioxide is made with 100g of carbon dioxide. So, if 1 tonne is 1,000,000g, you need to multiply 44 by 1,000.Which makes 44,000, which is 0.044 tonnes.
b. 6.23 mol carbon dioxide
How many tons of carbon dioxide are added to the earth's atmosphere each year by burning fossil fuels?
Total world energy-related carbon dioxide emissions were 29.7 billion metric tons in 2007. A: Humans add about 27 billion tonnes (nearly 30 billion US tons) of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels every year.
3.08 tonnes of CO2 per tonne of pure carbon biochar.
How is it possible for a jet airplane carrying 110 tons of jet fuel to emit 340 tons of carbon dioxide?
Carbon from the fuel and oxygen coming into the engine from the air inducted into the engine in massive amounts.
CO2 tanks contain liquid CO2. Preasure is all that is required. At standard atmosphic preasure CO2 can only be solid or gas.
The empirical formula for carbon dioxide is CO2 (that 2 is supposed to be small...). So, there are two atoms of oxygen in one carbon dioxide molecule (there is also a clue in the name: "di" can sometimes mean 2).
B. 6.23 mol carbon dioxide
The number of molecules in a mole of any covalently bonded compound such as carbon dioxide is always Avogadro's Number. Therefore, the number of molecules in 3.0 moles is 1.8 X 1024, to the justified number of significant digits.
When 125 grams of ethylene burns in oxygen to give carbon dioxide and water how many grams of carbon dioxide are formed?
Balanced equation C2H4 + 3O2 -> 2CO2 + 2H2O 125 grams ethylene (1 mole C2H4/28.052 grams)(2 mole CO2/1 mole C2H4)(44.01 grams/1 moleCO2) = 392 grams CO2 formed ==================
One molecule of carbon dioxide contains 3 atoms, which are one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms.
211g of carbon dioxide are equal to 4,794 moles.
How many molecules of carbon dioxide are produced when 133 molecules of acetylene (HCCH) to react in excess oxygen produce carbon dioxide water?
Here we're going to assume none of the acetylene gets a chance to escape into the atmosphere. Since it's lighter than air, we'll have to...I don't know, react it in a jar or something. We know the reaction we're going for is:C2H2 + n(O2) (meaning we have more oxygen than we could ever use) -> 2CO2 + H2O + n(O2)Therefore, to get the number of molecules of CO2 from this reaction, just double the molecules… Read More
44 is the molecualr weight of carbon dioxide and so 44g is 1 mole and so contains an Avagaadro number 6.022 x 1023
Well you don't state temp or pressure, so we can only assume STP conditions. At STP 1 mole will = 22.4 litres. Therefore there will be 0.044643 moles (1/22.4) here. This is multiplied by 44 (molecular weight of CO2) to give 1.9643 grams
Carbon dioxide: CO2 Atoms of oxygen (16O, 17O, 18O) and atoms of carbon (12C, 13C, 14C).
Quite a few! 4.37 X 1028 molecules of carbon dioxide (1 mole CO2/6.022 X 1023)(44.01 grams/1 mole CO2) = 3.19 X 106 grams of carbon dioxide ============================!!
0.35 moles carbon dioxide (6.022 X 10^23/1 mole CO2) = 2.1 X 10^23 atoms of carbon dioxide
52.06 grams carbon dioxide (1 mole CO2/44.01 grams)(2 mole O/1 mole CO2)(6.022 X 10^23/1 mole O) = 1.425 X 10^24 atoms of oxygen --------------------------------------------
There is one carbon atom per every molecule of carbon dioxide. There are also two oxygen atoms in carbon dioxide.
CO2 has three atoms (1C + 2O's)
atomic weight of carbon dioxide is 2 * 16 + 12 = 44 1 kg = 1000 g 1 kg of co2 has 1000/44 = 22.7 moles yeh i think that's wrong lol isn't it 3.37E25?
By experiment, a gram mole of any substance contains about 6.022 X 1023 molecules of the substance. The gram molecular mass of carbon dioxide, with the formula CO2, is about 44.01. Therefore 485 grams of carbon dioxide contains 485/44.01 or about 11.02 gram molecular masses. The formula for carbon dioxide shows that each molecule contains one carbon atom. Therefore, 11.02 moles of carbon dioxide contains 11.02 X 6.022 X 1023, or about 4.00 X 1024… Read More
There are many ways. But it is happening when burning.
100 grams of carbon dioxide contain 2,27 moles.
I think there are 400 carbon molecules
How many grams of carbon atoms are contained in carbon dioxide produced by burning 1 gallon of octane?
Last week, Slate published the first installment of the "Green Challenge," a program that helps participants reduce the amount of carbon dioxide they put into the atmosphere. We started by asking people to think about the effects their cars have on the environment: "For each gallon of gas your car burns, it releases about 19 pounds of carbon dioxide." Explainer readers wondered about this statistic: If a gallon of gasoline weighs about 6 pounds, how… Read More
1 mole CO2 = 6.022 x 1023 molecules CO2 3.25mol CO2 x (6.022 x 1023 molecules CO2)/1mol CO2 = 1.96 x 1023 molecules CO2
7.30 moles carbon dioxide (6.022 X 10^23/1 mole CO2) = 4.40 X 10^24 molecules of carbon dioxide
How many liters of carbon monoxide at STP are needed to react with 4.8g ot oxygen to produce carbon dioxide?
Humans currently release a little over 40 billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year, most of which (over 30 billion tons) comes from burning fossil fuel. This is roughly equal to the excess biomass decay of the northern hemisphere over that of the southern hemisphere in one seasons. The overall biomass decay remains fairly constant, and does NOT contribute excess CO2 into the atmosphere, with the exception of tropical deforestation and some wild… Read More
The gram molecular mass of carbon dioxide is 44.01. Therefore, the number of atoms in 22g of carbon dioxide is (22/44)(Avogadro's Number) or 3.0 X 1023, to the justified number of significant digits.
