lightning & bacterial action (nitrogen fixers).
The nitrogen in the air can be used by the leguminous plants and can combine with the atmospheric oxygen.
Nitrogen fixation :)
by nitrification of free nitrogen from the air
Because the nitrogen in the air is in a form not usable to animals and plants. The only way animals get nitrogen to build protein and nucleic acid is by eating it. This is usually through plants, which get there nitrogen from the soil. They get it from the soil cuz bacteria in the soil turn the atmospheric nitrogen into a usable form. In a water ecosystem cyanobacteria a.k.a. blue-green algae transform the nitrogen from the atmosphere into usable forms of nitrate
There are a great many ways in which a plant can get nitrogen. A plant can absorb nitrogen from the air.
plants and animals are not adapted to absorb nitrogen from the air. Nitrogen Fixation is a process where nitrogen is changed into a more reactive form for plants and animals to use. There are several ways where nitrogen fixation can happen: lightning, bacteria, carnivorous plants and industrial fixation.
Nitrogen gas is fairly inert and so is difficult for organisms to process. Instead, animals must get usable nitrogen compounds from their food.

NO. Nitrogen is a required nutrient for plants but it is obtained from ammonia or nitrates used as fertilizers. Some plants can "fix" (convert nitrogen in the air to an usable form) with the assistance of microorganisms living at the roots.
Nitrogen gas, N2, is relatively inert and difficult to process. Only lightning and certain bacteria can convert it into usable forms.
Nitrogen-fixating prokaryotes (such as bacteria) present in the roots of legumes and some other plants take N2 from the air and convert it to nitrogen compounds usable by plants. Nitrogen fixing bacteria (diazotrophs).
Nitrogen becomes a liquid when it is cooled to below -196 °C (-321 °F). (The industrial production is by liquefying air, then separating the nitrogen.)
air can be changed if their is enough gas to change it also the air a long time ago was mainly hydrogen and helium now it is mainly oxygen, carbon dioxid nitrogen
Most atmospheric nitrogen (N) exists as N2. Plants cannot use N in this form. The main ways this nitrogen enters soil in a plant usable form include:N fixation by bacteriaLightening caused atmospheric fixationFertilizer manufacturers also use atmospheric N when making N fertilizers.Most of the N is fixated by bacteria, usually in association with a plant. Legumes, like beans, peas and clover, are especially famous for this. The plants provide the bacteria with food and an environment they can live in, and in exchange, they give the plant usable nitrogen compounds.
Nitrogen is put into the soil by the air having nitrogen naturally in it, animals waste, and the plants put nitrogen in the soil
Simply put, nitrogen from the air that enters the soil is a triple bonded diatomic atom. Bacteria can break this triple bond, even though plants can not. This puts the nitrogen into usable form for the plant.
Nitrogen can enter the soil from plants such as legumes which fix nitrogen in their roots. Also dead plants and animals add nitrogen into the soil.
The answer is (ii) Nitrogen dioxide. Nitrogen is available in air in bonded form N2. Lightning energy helps break this N2 bond and produces nitrogen ions. These ions combine with Oxygen to produce Nitrogen monoxide in the first step and then nitrogen dioxide. If there happens to be rain at the time of lightning, this NO2 dissolves in water to form nitric or nitrous acids and falls to earth. These acids are in usable form for many plants. This process is one of the ways for nitrogen fixation in the environment. Kalra
Nitrogen doesn't contain air, but the air contains Nitrogen.
Organisms receive nitrogen in several ways. About 78% the air we breathe containes nitrogen gas. Nitrogen is also in muscle and in nucleic acids, so anytype of food contains nitrogen atoms.
Air is a mixture of components (such as oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, etc.) which can be created by many ways
Lightning changes the nitrogen in the air into another form called nitrate.THE NITRATE IS BROUGHT DOWN TO THE SOIL BY RAIN.Nitrate is the only form of nitrogen that can be absorbed by plants through its roots.--hhahahah
There are two ways plants put nitrogen into the soil one is decomposition where a plant dies then decomposes putting the nitrogen back into the soil that it once took out. The other is from the air, Legumes are plants that take nitrogen from the air with their leaves and release it into the soil with its roots.
About 78% of air is Nitrogen.
Yes. About 75% of air is Nitrogen.
