What kind of nitrogen are turned into ammonium in a Kjedahl digestion?
Asked in Nitrogen
How do plants get nitrogen compared to how animals get nitrogen?
Asked in Biology
Bacteria that feed on dead organisms?
Bacteria that feed on dead organisms are called decomposers. I will explain how it works with plants. When plants are eaten by an animal or have died there are called ammonium compounds. Then ammonium compounds are decomposed by bacteria called decomposers and turned into nitrites. Then they get nitrified by bacteria called nitriying bacteria and turned into nitrates. Then the nitrates are absorbed by the roots of plants and the cycle starts again. There is a cycle that includes this that might help. Its called the nitrogen cycle.

Asked in Chemistry
One liter liquid nitrogen to gas?
This may not be as spectacular as you migh imagine. If one litre of liquid nitrogen turned to gas, then it would simply be no longer the liquid form of nitrogen, but the gas form of it. This starts to happen immediately: its te smoke like stuff coming of the liquid nitrogen. Nitrogen in its gas form is a normal part of our atmosphere, we need it to breathe, so one litre of LIQUID nitrogen turning to GAS nitrogen will not do anything cool., You need to put something in the liquid nitrogen, and as nitrogen can only be liquid at a very low temperature, what ever you put in it, will freeze and if you hit it it will break. Dont get any on you: it wil freeze your flesh off

Asked in Kangaroos, Herbivores
Can herbivores be predators?
Not unless their prey is vegetation. However, there have been instances where herbivores have become predators: Pika, in herbivores like cows, is a nitrogen deficiency that drives cows to turn to eating meat or eating rabbits to satisfy this nitrogen craving. Icelandic ponies have been reported to have turned to catching fish and eating them, probably due to the same craving for nitrogen.
Asked in Bacteria
What are the three types of bacteria involved in the nitrogen cycle?
The three types of bacteria which are involved in the nitrogen cycle are nitrogen- fixing bacteria which change the nitrogen gas into ammonia. The next is nitrifying bacteria which changes the ammonia into nitrities and then the nitriites into nitrates. Then the plant absorbs the nitrates and uses them to continue growth. Then an animal may eat the plant receiving the nitrogen from it. But it must eventually get ride of it so it produces waste which goes back into the soil and is broken down by decomposers and fungi, which then turn it back into ammonia. The cycle then repeats itself. Extra nitrates are turned back into nitrogen gas by denitrifying bacteria.

What is nitrogen fixation?
Nitrogen fixation is the process of nitrogen gas from the air being turned into a compound in the soil by bacteria that live in the root nodules of certain plants (legumes). Nitrogen gas makes up 78% of our atmosphere and nitrogen is also a part of many molecules essential to life like proteins, nucleic acid and some vitamins. Nitrogen is found in other biologically important compounds such as alkaloids and urea too. Nitrogen is thus an essential nutrient for all lifeforms could use atmospheric nitrogen directly. Nitrogen fixation is the natural process by which atmospheric nitrogen (N2) is converted into ammonia (NH3), or nitrate forms. This step is important for the continuation of ecosystems because plants depend on nitrates and nitrites, and nitrogen gas is not a usable form for plants to intake. Nitrogen fixation is typically carried out by rhizomes, legumes, and other nitrogen-fixing organisms; these organisms usually have a symbiotic relationship with plants. The formula for nitrogen fixation is like this: N2 + 8 H+ + 6 eâ�� â�� 2 NH3 + H2 Two processes in which atmospheric or dissolved nitrogen is converted into nitrate ions; part of the nitrogen cycle; both lightning and some soil bacteria can fix niterogen.
