    After researching and testing multiple compounds, I have concluded that Ammonium Nitrate is the best compound for a cold pack. One of the most important factors in choosing a compound for a cold pack is how cold it will get, because of this, Calcium Chloride is a bad choice for a cold pack as it is an exothermic reaction and releases heat. On the other hand, Ammonium Nitrate had the largest drop in temperature, with a drop of 9.6° celsius. This is good for a cold pack as a cold pack is supposed to get cold, hence the name, and if it doesn’t, no one will buy your product. Furthermore, how long it stays cold is just as important as how cold it gets. Ammonium Nitrate stayed cold for 6 minutes before the temperature started rising. In comparison, Potassium Nitrate only stayed cold for 3 minutes before the temperature began to rise. This is…

    our society, without pouring those chemicals, the soil is useless. So much energy is put into producing crops now, it’s outlandish. Too many machines that require fossil fuels to operate are used to get food to your house. Here’s the long and ridiculous cycle of growing, processing, and transporting a crop: First, you drive an oil-powered machine to plow the area. Then you drive another oil-powered machine to plant the seed. Then you irrigate by using water pumps powered by electricity. Where’s…

    Ammonium Nitrate: Oklahoma City Bombing Ammonium nitrate or NH4NO3 is “an odorless, colorless or white, crystal salt produced by the reaction of ammonia and nitric acid” that has become the cause of numerous fatal explosions and hundreds of innocent deaths (The Fertilizer Institute, pp. 1, n.d.). It is most commonly used in the creation of fertilizers. The original problem that led to the use of this chemical was the increasing population and larger demand for food which meant farmers needed to…

    They drilled holes 55 feet deep and 12 5/8 inches in diameter in a chevron pattern (like you’d lay out cookies on a cookie sheet). They took samples from each hole at various depths and sent them to the Assay lab for the contents of each to be analyzed. After that, blastmaster, Charlie “Red,” would come and analyze the hole and label it with the amount of ANFO to use. ANFO is a mixture of Ammonium Nitrate and Fuel Oil. It is the same stuff that was used in the Oklahoma City bombing. To put the…

    Aim The objective of the experiment is to explore the process of simple analysis techniques and representative sampling in determining soil nutrient levels. Soil samples collected from Flinders Campus were used to determine their pH, salinity, ammonium, nitrate, phosphate, and nitrite levels. Introduction Unless there is a specific problem detected, the most common reason for undertaking soil analysis is to detect the levels of essential nutrients (Guo, 2009). The commonly analysed nutrients in…
