Transcript of Chemical Reactions That Harm Our Environment

Air Pollution The Causes The Common
Air Pollutants Effects Solution
Is A Combustion Chemical Reaction ? Air Pollution Air pollution can result from human actions. Emissions from industries and manufacturing activities such as in factories and power plants which release carbon monoxide and chemicals into the air.
Automobile engines burns lots of fossil fuels to work. This is a major cause of pollution and is very difficult to manage.
Household and farming chemicals like cleaning products, insect killers and fertilizer dust release harmful chemicals into the air and cause pollution. When an air pollutant, such as sulfuric acid, combines with the water droplets that make up clouds, the water droplets become acidic, forming acid rain. This can kill trees and harm animals and other wildlife.
Rain can carry and deposit the nitrogen in some pollutants on rivers and soils. This will affect the nutrients in the soil and water bodies. Encourage families to use train
or bike when commuting so there will be less cars on road and less smoke.
Use energy wisely this is because lots of fossil fuels are burned to generate electricity. Doing so will cut down the amount of pollution we create.
Recycle and re-use things. This will minimize the dependence of producing new thing. Chemical Reactions That Harm Our
Environment The Earth Occurs when gases, dust particles,
smoke or odor are introduced into the atmosphere in a way that makes it harmful to humans, animals and the environment. This is
because the air becomes dirty. Is made up of various gases
called the atmosphere. This helps
protect the earth and allow life to exist. Anything additional gas, particles or odors that are introduced into the air to destroy this natural balance can be called air pollution. By Rashid 7B Are...
Nitrogen dioxide comes from fuel
combustion and wood burning.
Sulfur dioxide fuel combustion,
electric utilities and industrial processes and natural occurrences like volcanoes.
Carbon Monoxide fuel combustion from vehicles and engines.
A combustion reaction is when oxygen combines with another compound to form water and carbon dioxide.
These reactions produce heat.
