Is carbon dioxide lighter or heavier than air?
Carbon Dioxide is heavier than the air.
carbon dioxide is heavier than oxygen therefore oxygen is lighter.
No. Carbon dioxide is heavier than helium.
It isn't. Carbon Dioxide is heavier than air.
CO2 is heavier
Carbon dioxide gas is slightly heavier than air.
No, nitrogen is not heavier than carbon dioxide. A nitrogen molecule is significantly lighter than a carbon dioxide molecule (28 vs. 44 amu). You also need to note the density at STP. Nitrogen gas is also less dense, further meaning that it is lighter.
Because, carbon dioxide is heavier than air whereas helium is lighter than air.
No you can pour a glass filled with co2 into another jar that has a candle in it and extinguish the candle. carbon dioxide is heavier than air. No, It's around 1.5 times less dense than air.
Carbon dioxide is heavier than air.
yes carbon dioxide is heavier than air
Carbon dioxide is denser and has a higher molecular weight than carbon monoxide.
Greenhouse gases are obviously lighter than air How then are they measured by weight How does one weigh something that is lighter than air?
Greenhouse gasses are NOT "obviously lighter than air"; carbon dioxide is significantly heavier than air. One way to weigh something that's lighter than air is to weigh it in a vacuum.
CO2 carbon dioxide is heavier than oxygen.
Carbon Dioxide is heavier than air. It does mix with air though.
NO2 is denser than air
The balloon contains air andthe products of combustion of propane, namely carbon dioxide, which is heavier than air, and steam, which is much lighter than air.
carbon dioxide is heavier than hydrogen because the molar mass of carbon dioxide (CO2) is 44 g/mol while hydrogen (H2) is 2 g/mol.
Carbon dioxide is approximately 50 percent heavier than air
Carbon dioxide is heavier (more dense) than oxygen. About 8 CO2 molecules weigh the same as 22 O2 atoms.
Carbon Dioxide is heavier than air. This means that it will not float, but will sink in the atmosphere
Approximately 1.5x heavier than the air.
Helium is a gas and is far more lighter than carbon which is a solid.
Water - H2O Carbon Dioxide - CO2 1 Hydrogen atom = 1g; 1 Oxygen atom = 16g; 1 Carbon atom = 12g; SO: water = (1x2) + 16 = 18g carbon dioxide = 12 + (16x2) = 44g So a carbon dioxide molecule is heavier than a water molecule.
no,it is heavier than water and so it'll sink
CO2 or carbon dioxide has a molar mass of 12+16+16=44g. O2 or oxygen molecule has a molar mass of 16+16=32g. Thus if we take one mole of both the gases we see that carbon dioxide is heavier. Therefore, carbon dioxide is heavier.
"Gas" could mean anything - there are many different types of gases. Some are lighter than air (composite of mostly nitrogen and oxygen) like methane or helium and some are heavier like argon or carbon dioxide.
If you blow it up with your mouth you make it heavier. You breathe out air containing a higher proportion of carbon dioxide than the air you breathe in. Carbon dioxide is a relatively heavy gas (nearly three times as dense as air) and so this increased amount of gas, plus the rest of the air in the balloon, will make the balloon heavier.
" Carbon dioxide is lighter than another gases. In smoke carbon dioxide has the highest component. This makes the smokes lighter and it goes back in the atmosphere. " by Ajay Kumar Prasad e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org
Chem. formula of carbon dioxide is CO2 and oxygen is O2 so carbon dioxixe has more atoms --- more mass.
Because the molecules in nitrogen (N) are lighter, so they can spread out quicker in the space than carbon dioxide (CO2).
Goldsmiths use blowing pipes for the carbon dioxide to escape. If the carbon dioxide remains in its place it cuts of the supply of oxygen because carbon dioxide is heavier than oxygen
Carbon dioxide is heavier, and thus diffuses more slowly, than oxygen (molecular weight 44 vs. 32).
Carbon dioxide is denser than air. The density of carbon dioxide is 1,977 g/L at 0 0C and standard pressure. The density of air (the so called International Standard Atmosphere) is 1,225 g/L.
Hydrogen is a specific element. "Air" is a mixture of Oxygen, Nitrogen, Carbon Dioxide and various other elements and compounds. In its elemental gaseous form. Pure (H) or hydrogen is lighter in molecular weight than all the major components of "Air" thus Hydrogen is lighter than "Air". According to the periodic table, Pure elemental hydrogen is also lighter than pure elemental oxygen.
Carbon dioxide makes up the air bubbles, and carbon dioxide is lighter than lemonade, so the bubbles rise to the top.
Carbon monoxide is actually close to the same density of air. It is carbon dioxide that is denser than air.
Helium is a relatively light gas which is lighter than air at ground level. Exhaled air contains a lot of water vapour and carbon dioxide relative to normal air. Since ground level air is less dense than helium, adding water vapour and carbon dioxide makes exhaled air even more heavier than helium.
Exhaled air, which has a slightly higher amount of carbon dioxide, is heavier than inhaled air.
not flamable heavier than air colourless add more answers!
A hot air balloon is inflated with air and then heated by a propane fueled burner. The balloon contains air andthe products of combustion of propane, namely carbon dioxide, which is heavier than air, and steam, which is much lighter than air.
No, It isn't. CO2 Has a mass of 44 and Cl2 has a mass of 24
yes of course, less protons, less atomic mass.
quick answer: because pure Carbon Dioxide is heavier than the mixture of gasses we call "air" the temperature around frozen carbon dioxide (dry ice) "melts" the dry ice releasing gaseous carbon dioxide. which is still quite cold. the cold attracts water vapor which forms clouds just like you see in the sky. since pure Carbon Dioxide is heavier than the surrounding "air" it stays low and the cooled water vapor forms clouds around it until… Read More
No. Humid air is lighter than dry air. Although liquid water is much heavier than air, when it evaporates it becomes lighter than air. This is because any substance in gas form contains exactly the same number of particles in the same volume. That means that the weight of a gas is determined by the weight of the individual molecules in the gas. Pure oxygen (two atoms of oxygen) has a relative weight of about… Read More
It is lighter than air.
it is lighter than water.
Carbon dioxide is heavier than oxygen and can displace the oxygen effectively suffocating or starving the animals for oxygen. Without oxygen they cannot generate enough energy and the animal dies.
It's just as much about the build as it is about the material. A poorly engineered carbon fibre frame can be heavier than a well engineered aluminum frame. But, if both frames are made equally well, then the Carbon fibre frame should be lighter.
Oxygen is the heavier part, nitrogen and argon are lighter, even water vapor is lighter.
Alcohol found in alcoholic beverages is lighter than water. It is called ethanol. But as far as chemistry is concerned alcohols are a large family of organic compounds. Alcohols are compounds whose molecules have a hydroxyl group attached to saturated carbon atom1 of a carbon chain. The chain may be short or long. Most monohydroxy alcohols are lighter than water. Some Diols(containing two hydroxyl groups ) and Triols(containing three hydroxyl groups ) are heavier than… Read More
