CO displaces oxygen in the blood stream and once it bonds with the blood cells, it is hard to dislodge. A person with an overdose of CO will die sometimes even if they are given pure oxygen because the pure oxygen has nothing to bond to and be carried to the body cells. The blood cells accept CO more readily than oxygen and hang on to it longer.
CO2 is also dangerous, but in a different way. CO2 does not react with the body as does CO, but if the concentration of CO2 is too high, then that means that not enough oxygen is available. This can also kill you -- but the effect is more like holding your breath than breathing a toxic chemical. Too much CO2 isn't bad by itself, it's just that it usually goes along with not enough O2, which is bad. This commonly affects underwater swimmers for instance who build up too much CO2 in their bloodstream as they swim underwater, causing them to pass out under water and drown. You should NEVER hyperventilate before swimming a long distance under water -- my father nearly drowned this way!
The largest carbon dioxide sink is the ocean. The ocean is becoming less able to hold carbon dioxide, largely because it is getting warmer. Therefore, less carbon dioxide is leaving the atmosphere and entering the ocean.
the higher the temperature the more carbon dioxide the colder the less carbon dioxide there is
Is blood less acidic when carbon dioxide leaves the lungs
Carbon Dioxide is less denser than air.
Carbon Dioxide is the necessary component in the process of photosynthesis. With less CO2, the plants photosynthesis will be less rapid, as opposed to an area rich with CO2, where the plants would conduct photosynthesis very quickly. Too much Carbon, however, can prove toxic.
Chemists like to use informative names for chemicals. Since there are two common oxides of carbon, which are carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) it would be less informative if we just called both of them carbon oxide. The distinction is often quite important, because carbon monoxide is quite toxic, while carbon dioxide is not toxic, and is a normal component of the atmosphere (although at the present time, we do have a bit too much of it).
No it's not the same. Carbon monoxide is CO and carbon dioxide is CO2. Carbon monoxide comes out of car exhausts and is poisonous if breathed in. CO2 is much less dangerous, though it is also a health hazard if the concentration is high enough. There are two oxygens atoms attached to the carbon atom in carbon dioxide (thus the name). There is only one oxygen atom attached to the carbon atom.
Yes, much less. Earth's atmosphere is less than 1% carbon dioxide. Venus's atmosphere is mostly carbon dioxide and on top of that is 93 times denser than Earth's.
When you burn fossil fuels to make enrgy, carbon dioxide is released. So, if you burn less fossil fuels, less carbon dioxide is released.
No car can actually reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the air, but an economical car will add less additional carbon dioxide to the air than a less economical one.
If it burns less fuel it makes less carbon dioxide. Good gas mileage means that you need less fuel for your journeys.
they breath out oxygen for the humans and breath in carbon dioxide which helps the earth have less carbon dioxide
When you inhale carbon dioxide your lungs tighten and your breathing becomes a lot less fuctional.
Plants use carbon dioxide, so there is less carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in the summer.
Because trees consume carbon dioxide and produce oxygen.
Its nearly impossible to determine, but one thing I do know, is that there is more carbon dioxide in the air in the south, and less in the north.
Less carbon dioxide dissolves in hot water than cold. If there is less carbon dioxide dissolved there is less carbonic acid in the water. If there is less carbonic acid, the pH will be closer to neutral.
No, as with any gas carbon dioxide is less soluble at higher temperatures.
higher prices means people will drive less, and when people drive less carbon dioxide emissions are reduced.
There would be less Carbon Dioxide In the atmosphere. (APEX)
When Carbon is burnt the main product formed is Carbon dioxide(CO2), which is in gaseous state. It the combustion is done where oxygen supply is less, small amounts of impurity, Carbon monoxide(CO), is formed along with the main product. This is also a gas but it is colorless, flammable and highly toxic. This gas is very flammable and will burn with a blue flame to produce Carbon dioxide.
Much safer to useNon-toxic, insoluble in water, no threat to soil, and aquifers water supplyEmits much less carbon dioxide
No, air is mostly nitrogen and oxygen with very very little carbon dioxide (less than 1%)What you exhale is mostly nitrogen, oxygen, and some carbon dioxide.
carbon dioxide from the plant and the more yellow the solution is the more Carbon Dioxide there is. The greener or bluer it is, the less carbon dioxide.
The solubility of carbon dioxide in water is 1,45 g/L at 25 0C and 100 kPa; of course carbon dioxide is more or less soluble also in other liquids.
