Transcript of Ocean Acidification

Ocean Acidification Equation:
CO2+H20 <-> H2CO3 Products:
H2Co3 Reactants:
Co2+h20 A catalyst is a substance that accelerates a chemical reaction without being affect
In words this means carbon dioxide and water are combinded to form carbonic acid
Equation was balanced
It is important to balance equations because of the law of conservation What i found was that oceans absorb one third of the carbon dioxide in the air and as it dissolves the PH decreases and the water becomes more acidic. This impacts me because i learned a lot about how the acidification in the ocean affects the living organisms. The Real World
This affects the real world
Because it affects the organisms that live in shells.
These organisms are affected because the calcium carbonate
that is used in skeletons or shells for many living organisms dissolve because of the
low ph level in the oceans. It decreases the availability of carbonate ions and lowers the saturation state of shells needed for life. Question: How does ocean acidification affect living organism
