How does crude oil form?
Answer Oil and natural gas are carbon by-products and a common name for carbon by-products is petroleum. Oil is formed deep under the surface. Petroleum is formed from organic materials. This organic material comes from the remains of dead organisms. The organic material becomes a part of layers of sedimentary rocks. More layers form on the top of these layers and the organic material changes into petroleum, and is contained into a source rock. This causes the petroleum to turn into oil. Answer Adjacent seas were...

Asked in Waste and Recycling
Explain How earth's biosphere recycled materials over and over?
dead earth layers fall off the earth like dead skin on us humans. These layers of dead or old organic materials are fertile to our new soil(kind of like fertilizer). Also, like humans a new layer of eath grows in like how a scab falls of and a new set of new skin. This process happens over and over again. ...
How can sodium chloride separated when there are organic and inorganic layers?
NaCl is a highly ionic compound and if it dissolved in water will be heavier than most organic layers. This is called the brine layer in industry. This can now be decanted off from the bottom of a reactor or speerating funnel etc. ...
