    Canisters of the compressed gas range in price, depending on the application. CO2 cartridges for air rifles may cost 50 cents each. Soda machine CO2 canisters have a wide range in price, as do the big compressed air bottles used by heavy industry.
  • Answer: semiconductors are silicon and germanium. they are like metals but their highest occupied electron shells/orbitals do not overlap. they require a little energy to exite electrons into the conduction band.
    Small amounts of group 3 or 5 elements can be changed to dramatically alter conductivity.
    the structure of carbon allotropes, such as diamond and graphite, do not allow this. Diamond is a covalent network with no free electrons. Graphite is layers of hexagonal carbon networks with electrons allowed to flow in one directing only. Adding these metal impurities, if it can be done easily, will not have the same effect

  • Answer: carbon pollution is people or objects putting a harmful chemical gas into the air-carbon. they can do this by- driving there car, using too much electrisity or spraying arocels in the air. this is also known as their carbon fottprint (how much carbon they leave behind)
  • Answer: screws nuts and bolts and car bodies
  • Answer: Carbon offsetting is a term used to describe how carbon emissions are balanced out by reducing your emitted pollution using carbon credits.

  • Answer: The same hemoglobin molecules that absorb oxygen in the lungs release it to the cells in the capillaries and pick up carbon dioxide from the cells. When the blood returns to the lungs, the hemoglobin releases the carbon dioxide and replaces it with fresh oxygen. The carbon dioxide released by the hemoglobin travels across the membranes in the lungs and is breathe out when we exhale.
  • Answer:
    Carbon steel, also called plain carbon steel, is a malleable, iron-based metal containing carbon, small amounts of manganese, and other elements that are inherently present. Steels can either be cast to shape or wrought into various mill forms from which finished parts are formed, machined, forged, stamped, or otherwise shaped.
  • Answer: No, carbon is not considered a semiconductor.

Why is carbon dangerous?

  • Carbon is dangerous as it is enters the body and stays in thehemoglobin. Carbon in the hemoglobin will cause limited oxygen inthe blood and into the brain.

  • Answer: No.

    The carbon isotope Carbon-14, or radiocarbon, is found in the human body in the same proportions as there is carbon in the atmosphere. It comes to us from the food we eat, but the levels are too low to be dangerous, either to us or to the environment.
  • Answer: When something is burned (such as fuel, which contains carbon), a reaction takes place. Light, heat and physical force (in the case of an engine) are produced and oxygen is added. Recall that matter is not created nor destroyed, only converted. So when we add oxygen, it combines with the carbon to produce either carbon monoxide (one carbon one oxygen) or carbon dioxide (one carbon two oxygen).
  • Answer: They will often use 95% oxygen and 5% carbon dioxide for victims of CO poisoning because they are trying to force the CO off the hemoglobin on the Red Blood Cell.
  • Answer: not too sure what you want to know but i will explain the combustion process as best i can. gas car engines are a 4 stroke engine. the 4 strokes being: intake (down), compression (up), power (down), exhaust (up). engines operate off a reciprocating motion meaning the movement of one piston is the result of the opposite movement of a different piston. on the intake stroke the intake valve opens allowing fuel that has been mixed with air to be sucked into the cylinder by the downward travel of the piston (suction). on the compression stroke both the intake and exhaust valves are closed the piston travel back up with the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder. this compresses the air/fuel until he piston is at or near top dead center. then the spark from the spark plug ignites the air/fuel which causes a rapid expansion (not and explosion) or the air fuel thus pushing the piston down creating the power stroke. then the piston travels back up as the exhaust valve opens. the piston effectively pushes the spent air/fuel out of the cylinder. this is the basic principles of a internal combustion engine. now to more directly address your question. carbon monoxide is a by product of the air/fuel being burnt. the carbon monoxide (along with hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen) are pushed out on the exhaust stroke and into your exhaust system. it is the job of the catalytic converter to convert the carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide (a less harmful substance) it does this thanks to its chemical make up and elements that add an additional oxygen to monoxide to make it dioxide. its basically a filter for your exhaust.

  • Answer:
    1. You can stop burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) in industry, transport and the generation of electricity, which releases carbon dioxide (CO2).
    2. You can change to renewable energy (solar, wind, water, hydro, tidal and wave, geothermal, ocean thermal, biomass and biofuel) which does not release carbon dioxide.
    3. You can plant forests again that will remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
