Sulfuric Acid is a strong acid that exists as a colorless oily corrosive liquid and is made by reacting sulfur trioxide with water. This is most commonly found in batteries, manufacture of fertilizers, explosives, detergents, dyes and other different chemicals. Sulfuric Acid is very dangerous to humans as it can cause respiratory tracts of humans and other animals while doing some major damage to plants that helps provide oxygen for us. Ground-level ozone is a secondary air pollutant formed when sunlight triggers reactions between nitrogen oxides and volatile hydrocarbons. If a human inhales ground-level ozone it can cause chest pain, throat irritation, and congestion.
Which could be harmful to humans and animal when we breath we also breathing in carbon. The Phosphorus is representative the chemical the element in three allotropic one is yellow, poisonous and flammable. Phosphorus can also be a molecular to calcium as a mineral to the body and it combines calcium with bones and teeth ETC. Human’s effect the phosphorus by moving the phosphorus around and it become a run off that can end up in water and it cause eutrophication that kill the animals and the plant’s and I believe that how the volcano’s corrupter because once that happen it end up in the water killing everything. Also phosphorus is in are detergent’s and fertilizers.
SO2, sulfur dioxide effects our trees and water systems and is the prominent cause of acid rain. Mercury- when Mercury enters our water systems it becomes harmful to our ecology (fish, plants, animals etc) and effects anyone who consumes part of the food chain. Nitrogen
The wind blows these acidic gases into building, cars, homes and trees. Water that runs of these buildings adds acid to the acid rain, making the combination more acidic than regular rain. Acid rain is measured by a pH scale, the lower the number, the more acidic, Vic versa. The effects of acid rain are, damages of forest soils, fish and other living organisms, it also affects lakes, streams and causes aluminum to be highly toxic to species and aquatic organisms. In North America acid rain affects the Adirondack and the Catskill Mountain in the state
Pollution has had an enormous impact on Kabwe; even breathing is toxic for the people. Breathing can cause poisons like lead to instantly enter the blood stream, which than can attack the central nervous system. The outcome of poisoning can cause a person to have anemia, vomiting, kidney damage and it can also slowdown that mental development. In many cases, it is said to have caused brain damage and death. Many people would actually try and prevent toxic pollutants from spreading, but according to environmentalist there is a canal used to carry toxic waste from the pit, in the town of Kabwe.
The equation for the reaction is known as: Metal + cold water [pic]hydrogen(H2) + metal hydroxide (MeOH) The reaction is very exothermic and had the tendency to allow the hydrogen to ignite a fire. Sulfuric acid is a very strong dehydrogenation agent which allows it to be a danger to people. We had tested this on sugar instead of an actual human being. The chemical reaction is very exothermic and causes the intense dehydration of the sugar. The Sulfuric acid is a catalyst for the reaction.
Large amounts of methane and other poisonous gases released into the air from the gas wells contribute to heavy air pollution and global warming. Fracking has been linked to movement of radioactive materials and heavy metals from the underground layers of the earth to the surface through flow-back
Such remedies such as recycling, purification, treatment, and management of wastes can diminish the issues of a detrimental environment. Air pollution is also caused by technology and human influence. Similar to water damage, air pollution is derived from chemicals and toxins which are released into the atmosphere. Thus, the toxins begin to reveal the depletion of natural resources. Fuel combustion and automobile transportation are two large factors of air pollution.
2013).Pharmaceutical companies sometimes place active chemicals and waste into groundwater sources, in which almost all of the groundwater may be untreated which most likely cause contamination. (Herber, 2002). Abstract: Increase in the emissions of carbon dioxide by burning fossil fuels is the largest cause of environmental down grading resulting not only in global warming but also causing acid rain which alters the pH balance of ground water. Water is a universal solvent; however, its dissolving properties are very sensitive to changes in temperature and pH. Global economic growth has, unfortunately,
Ammonium hydroxide is dangerous to breathe, it’s extremely toxic if ingested, and causes skin, eye and respiratory irritation. Potassium hydroxide is corrosive as well, causes burns, heats up when combined with water, and is very dangerous to skin and eyes. * This is the chemical equation that happens when the reaction occurs: CH2OH(CHOH)4CHO + 2[Ag(NH3)2]+ → 2Ag(s) + CH2OH(CHOH)4COO + 4NH3 + 2H2O Silver nitrate takes the hydroxide so the compounds change the hydroxides accelerate the reaction. * The connection we made between this demonstration and chemistry is the formation of new substances. In previous labs we had seen the formation of precipitates and this is also seen in our demonstration when silver hydroxide forms.
