But driving to work will actually do the opposite. By driving a car the gas produce from burning petrol and diesel is not good for the atmosphere. It pollutes the air, and that’s poisonous to the environment. The car gases (petrol) are harmful to the environment because gases destroy the ozone layer and the carbon dioxide stays in the atmosphere adding to the global warming problems. Less driving will be the best thing for the environment because it means fewer emissions.
At some races there is a smell of burning oil, and smoke when a car blows up. There are many different flags used in the races such as green, yellow, white, red, and checkered. These flags all mean different things to the race car drivers like green means go and red means stop. It is a way to signal to drivers that there may be a dangerous situation on the race track. Depending on the race you go to you will see different types of cars and see different types of races.
A smart road is a road that has an IT system that communicates with the IT system that is found in smart cars. The smart road communicates potential dangers to the smart car such as the recommended speed, if there are any obstacles in the way, the amount of traffic, etc. C. What are the foreseen benefits of smart cars and smart roads? Major safety increase for automobiles because the smart cars and roads would give information that would greatly reduces the chances of accidents. The major reason for accidents is speeding and smart cars would warn the drivers when they are going too fast and tell them to break.
How the contamination affects the world is amazing, but it is even more amazing seem that there is people who do not care about it. Moreover there is no doubt that excessive levels of pollution are causing a lot of damage to the environment. But, there is no single cause of the contamination; on the contrary it is caused by humans in different ways such as the industrialization, the population growth and damage to the natural resources. The industrialization is the first fundamental cause of pollution. The main polluter in the world is nowadays the industry.
A device in the exhaust system of a motor vehicle, containing a catalyst for converting pollutant gases into less harmful ones. A catalytic converter is a device that uses a catalyst to convert three harmful compounds in car exhaust into harmless compounds. The three harmful compounds are: * Hydrocarbons (in the form of unburned gasoline) * Carbon monoxide (formed by the combustion of gasoline) * Nitrogen oxides (created when the heat in the engine forces nitrogen in the air to combine with oxygen) Carbon monoxide is a poison for any air-breathing animal. Nitrogen oxides lead to smog and acid rain, and hydrocarbons produce smog. In a catalytic converter, the catalyst (in the form of platinum and palladium) is coated onto a ceramic honeycomb or ceramic beads that are housed in a muffler-like package attached to the exhaust pipe.
These pollutants are released in the air we breathe. They are very harmful for our health. The burning of various fuels in factories and power plants emit some poisonous gases that are left off in the atmosphere. Yet without burning fuel, the production of goods in industries is not
Wenda Bonazza, English 101/108 2-18-13 Dangerous Driving Habits Driving can be fun; however, many underestimate the dangers associated with driving a car. Society feels the harsh effects daily, which are related to the lack of responsible drivers on the road today. Many of today’s drivers have dangerous driving habits of being over confident, distracted, and drive while under the influence. Many drivers today are dangerous because they are over confident. It is typical for a person to drive cautiously in the beginning.
Many people will not agree with the expulsion of diesel fuel, but they must understand the adverse effects it may have. People cannot judge something until they know all of the facts of that subject. Diesel fuel is made from petroleum “which originates from decomposed vegetation that has been stored and altered in the upper strata of the earth for thousands of years” (Farrauto). Two primary products of petroleum are diesel and gasoline; both are used to fuel vehicles. “The fuels are made by separating and chemically changing petroleum compounds, a process referred to as refining (Farrauto).
Sheer numbers of vehicles though have significantly contributed to increased and detrimental levels of air pollution. In the days prior to Ford’s invention of the motorized automobile, horse and buggy was the everyday method of private transportation. Horse and buggies created air pollution (from the horse’s flatulence and waste and from the excess dust kicked up from the buggy on unpaved roads). “Aside from the disagreeable aesthetic effect created by horse manure, [and much like the carbon monoxide pollution of automobiles,] its chief impact upon public health seemed to come from wind-blown manure particles that irritated respiratory organs…” (Tarr, 1971, ¶21). Motorized vehicles traded in
Research Paper There are many things that are detrimental to our health. Some of these things are natural, like viruses and bacteria and some of these things are man-made, like guns and cigarettes. Why would we create things that could ultimately kill us? People are driven by all sorts of things and one of the biggest things is greed. Tobacco, and specifically cigarettes, have been the most detrimental, but preventable thing to our health in the United States for the years they have been around.
