    Precipitation reaction, or otherwise known as double-replacement reaction, is one of the three common types of chemical reactions along with decomposition and combustion. A simple definition for the precipitation reaction would be “atoms from two different compounds switch places” (Lew 40). This means that one of the reactant’s molecule “trades” places with another from another compound to form products, like a precipitate, hence the term double-replacement. A precipitate is usually a solid insoluble product of a reaction, compared to the other soluble aqueous molecules in the formula. Its creation is what characterizes precipitation reactions since it is what the reaction is named after. The precipitates can look like a powdery or gel-like…

    An arctic climate such as northern Scandinavia is characterized by cold and long winters, and short and cool summers. Precipitation is generally in the snow form and annual precipitation for these regions is less than 20 inches. Temperature has a major influence on aquatic life in these regions. Temperature decreases in the winter and as sea ice solidifies, the amount of pore pace within the ice is reduced and the salinity increases. Organisms must be adapted to prevent the growth of ice…

    Passive precipitation is a situation whereby an individual possesses characteristics that expose him or her to victimization (Degarmo, 2011). For instance, an individual may discuss his job activities and the rise in pay as well as how his lifestyle will change to people. His story will spread to people who engage in criminal activities, and the result is, he will fall as a victim of criminal activities due to his characteristics. On the other hand, active precipitation is whereby an individual…

    This analysis compares the precipitation patterns of six different Florida locations: Marathon Shores, Pensacola, Daytona Beach, Tavernier, Chipley, and Libson. All of these locations vary geographically, ranging from the Florida Keys to the Florida Panhandle. Based on the many physical geography theories learned in class so far, it can be asserted that precipitation varies throughout the state of Florida. Indeed, there are many factors that influence precipitation levels: convection, cold…

    Global Warming and its Effect on America In elementary school, we learn the steps of the Water Cycle. We know that for it to rain, warm air has to evaporate water from rivers, oceans, pond, trees, etc, and then it transforms that water into condensation. Soon there will be enough condensation built up that we will experience rainfall, snow, and other types of precipitation. Around the world, we are experiencing a great increase in rain. Why is this? Why is our world constantly undergoing more…

    Annual precipitation totals variety from 50 to one hundred twenty-five cm (approximately 20 to 50 inches), with higher quantities within the south of the area and in the uplands nearly all regions with this climate have snow. This is because the moisture is evaporated from the land at a slow, normal pace, and is the reason why precipitation falls regularly during all four seasons. Humid Continental has an extensive variety of temperatures, which means low, cold temperatures and excessive heat…

    Conclusion: The the precipitation reactions lab eight out of the fourteen occurring reactions were precipitates. A precipitate means that a solid substance was formed or a substance that is not aqueous was formed. The reactions that did not form a precipitate were DNR, which means that they did not react. At station one barium chloride and potassium nitrate did not react but barium chloride and silver nitrate reacted to form barium nitrate and silver chloride. The precipitate at station one was…

    Water Tables Comparisons This paper will be comparing the water table data for two locations, Berkeley, California and Terre Haute, Indiana. The work will compare each location’s water usage and characteristics about their water tables. Each location’s geographic position, topography, elevation, climate, wind patterns, and moisture levels are key factors for the supply and demand of their respective water tables. Berkeley, California is located on the east banks of San Francisco Bay. It…
