because plants love nitrogen! it makes them grow faster.

Yes. Nitrogen is used for making many types of amide/amine-based chemical fertilizers. It is the main constituent of fertilizers like Urea & Di-Amino-Phosphate.

Ammonium is a source of nitrogen for many plants.

There are actually many more than two types of fertilizers. However, all fertilizers come in various forms of N-P-K-S: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, and Sulphur. Among these four nutrients come, as just mentioned, an abundance of types of fertilizers with various mixes and percentages of nutrients. The most popular is the 10-10-10 mix, which is all equal parts nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, but you can also get fertilizers that are higher in nitrogen, phosphorus or potassium. Urea is nitrogen fertilizer, potash is potassium fertilizer. You can also get fertilizer that is high in sulphur, though this is more rare as it depends on your area as there locals that have sulphur-deficient soils.

Lightning helps in the production of a form of nitrogen. Lightning causes oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere to chemically react to combine and form nitrogen oxide, a key ingredient in many fertilizers.

Elemental nitrogen is found by taking a deep breath; it's almost 80% of our atmosphere. In compounds, nitrogen is found in fertilizers, amino acids, ammonia, and many other substances.

Many synthetic fertilizers are blended from multiple ingredients supplied by multiple manufacturers. mostly inert ingredients and some nutritional minerals added.

There are about seven kinds of fertilizers:Organic Fertilizer,Inorganic Fertilizer,Nitrogen-Based Fertilizer, Phosphorus-Based,Fertilizer,Potassium-Based Fertilizer, Liquid Fertilizers and Solid Fertilizers. Whirlston fertilizer machines can make most of them.

There are many uses. In liquid form it is very cold and is used for refrigeration. Nitrogen is involved in the manufacture of artificial fertilizers. Nitrogen also takes part in many biological processes as in the chemical structure of neurotransmitters, proteins, nucleic acids and more.

There are many factors that can cause a spring to have a high mineral content. The surrounding rocks and the way the water flows can cause high mineral content.

The Nitrogen content of the tea affects the plants growth, the more nitrogen the more the plant grows faster and healthier but lesser the Nitrogen content of tea lessen the plants growth. We tried many experiments, we used black tea ground and green tea ground but as we searched the black tea ground has a Nitrogen that can fill a half cup of coffee while the green tea ground has a Nitrogen that can fill half of the Nitrogen content of black tea ground.

Since urea is an organic compound, the body has many uses for it. The most important being the use of excreting Nitrogen. It is also used in fertilizers since it is a good source of Nitrogen.

Nitrogen is the main chemical that makes your lawn green. There are many artificially produced chemicals and fertilizers used to keep lawns green but nitrogen is the basis.

Chicken manure can be called by many names, what ever you choose! It has a high nitrogen content as does urea so they are similar but different.

Nitrogen is a component of many biological molecules including proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and carbohydrates. Nitrogen is so important that a shortage of nitrogen will inhibit the growth of an organism. For example, farmers use nitrogen-based fertilizers to get the most growth from their crops. Nitrogen in its elemental form is inert in a human body. But it is a major component of proteins (amino acids) and nucleic acids which constitute life. Hence the elemental nitrogen in its compound form is important for sutaining life!

Nitrogen gas has a number of uses. Since it is relatively inert, it is often used as a preservative atmosphere for delicate historical objects. It can also be used to manufacture ammonia, by combining it with hydrogen. Ammonia has many industrial uses, such as the manufacture of explosives and of fertilizers.

Simple plant fertilizers combine N, P and K; nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. These are the elements most needed by plants. There are many more elements needed and more complex fertilizers are available for this. In particular, some soils are deficient in 'trace elements' such as selenium, but these tend to be of local importance.

It exists naturally in air, many foods (proteins, legumes, etc.), and soil. Nitrogen compounds such as ammonia, nitric acid, nitrates, and nitrides are used to make fertilizers and other chemical products. Its chemical symbol is N, and atomic weight is 7.

Eutrophication is the over-feeding of algae or other plants in waterways due to excessive fertilizers. One source of these fertilizers is the phosphate content of many detergents. These can allow algal blooms to develop in waterways, some of which are toxic and can also lead other problems, like oxygen depletion.

nitrogen, it tends to form high energy bonds that are easily broken.

Fertilizers are not so much of a problem. The biggest problem is the use of pesticides on crops.

there are many different fertilisers...

Many sodas have a lot of sugar, and a high acid content. Not good for teeth.

No. However, many fertilizers do contain nitrates, such as ammonium nitrate which can be thought of as salts of nitric acid.

An unhealthy diet can cause high cholesterol. Foods with high lipid content usually have a lot of cholesterol.

Zero.. Aluminum is aluminum and nitrogen is nitrogen.
