What compound do you break down to get aluminum?
Aluminum can be produced by breaking down the compound, aluminum oxide. ~Dayton Schuh
Aluminum is produced by breaking down a compound called aluminum oxide. Two of the main uses for aluminum on a large scale are the production of cars and airplanes.
There are various ways to break down compounds into their constituent elements. Any compound will break down at a sufficiently high temperature. Electrolysis is useful for many industrial processes, such as the refinement of aluminum. In terms of organic chemistry, there are enzymes which catalyze the breakdown of specific molecules, usually into simpler molecules, rather than into elements. The specific technique you use would depend upon the specific compound that you wish to break down.
It takes approxmatly 500 to 1000 years for plastic and aluminum to break down.
The only way to break down a compound is through a chemical reaction.
Ammonium compound breaks down into nitrites, and back to nitrates
Chemical changes are needed to break down a compound because there is a change in the physical structure of the compound. Certain chemicals are substituted for each other, taken away, or even added to the compound in these reactions.
The only way to break down a compound is through chemical change. sometimes, energy is needed for a chemical change to happen. 8thGrader,(:
my compyouter do not have de chat list in fasebook
Yes, by chemical means, such as electrolysis, which can break water down into oxygen and hydrogen gas.
Compounds can only be broken down by chemical reactions
If you are talking about aluminum foil, it takes a very long time. Aluminum is already in its elemental form, so there is no 'compound' to break down. Aluminum does not rust or corrode under normal exposure to the environment. The small amount that oxides on on its surface act as an inhibitor to further oxidation. So, an aluminum foil that is buried in a dump would last longer than our lifetimes.
First, salts are compounds, not elements so with only a few exceptions a complex substance will not break down into salts. Glass can be broken down into its component elements, as can any mixture or compound, but in this case it would be difficult. The main component of glass is usually silicon dioxide, a relatively inert compound, which can be broken down into silicon and oxygen. It will not break down into salts. Other substances… Read More
Yes it will!!! depending on your compound and how your filtering it it may or may not break it down.
It's a compound. if you break it down, CO, the elements are Carbon and Oxygen.
200 to 500 years
An average of 350 years
Aluminum ore is bauxite. The system to clean it up and make it a pure element takes very large amounts of energy.
It takes 80-100 years
it takes the heat of a meteorite coming through the earths atmosphere
Carbon dioxide...break down the compound and that's what your left with. TEEHEE
No. First of all, aluminum is an element, not a compound. Second, a compound must contain carbon to be considered organic.
The most common compound that has aluminum is aluminium oxide, Al2O3.
Aluminum chloride is a compound of the elements aluminum and chlorine.
Aluminum and Nitrogen create a compound named aluminum nitride, its Chemical formula is AlN
The compound formed between aluminum and oxygen is called aluminum oxide. It has a formula of Al2O3.
Aluminum chloride is an ionic compound because aluminum is a metal and chlorine is a nonmetal. When a metal and a nonmetal are combined they make up an ionic compound. Incorrect. Aluminium Chloride is covalent.
a chemical change
A compound. A compound is composed of elements. If you were to break down a compound you would get new compounds or elements.
aluminum oxide is a compound of the two elements aluminum & oxygen.
Aluminum and fluorine combine to form the compound aluminum fluoride, AlF3.
The formula for the compound aluminum chlorate is AlCl3O9 .
Decomposition is breaking down your nutsack into little peices
Yes. For instance, electrolysis breaks down water into hydrogen and oxygen.
An element is made of only one type of atom. A compound is made of two or more. so aluminum oxide is a compound as it is made of aluminum as well as oxygen atoms.
Aluminum is element. Aluminum foil is made entirely of aluminum.
No. Aluminum sulfate is a compound of aluminum, sulfur, and oxygen.
The ionic compound Al2O2 forms when aluminum reacts with oxygen.
The aluminum part of the staple is an element, but it probably has a thin plastic coating on it which is a compound.
add heat or electricity thats all I know
You can't. An element is a pure substance. I think you mean compound...
No aluminum cans are not compounds. Aluminum cans are made of aluminum which is an element and is very metallic.
Aluminum and oxygen. The first two letters in the compound are Al, not AI, so the compound aluminum chloride is written Al2O3. Al is the symbol for aluminum and O is the symbol for oxygen.
