  • Precipitation Reaction Lab Report

    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…

  • How Does Global Warming Affect America

    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…

  • Aci Acid Rain Research Paper

    Rain occurs when condensed moisture in the atmosphere falls to the ground in separate, visible drops and it provides us with another source of water and can be used to provide plants with water such as in rainforests or countryside. The hydrologic cycle allows for rain to form and pour down in different areas. Water from oceans, swamps, lakes, rivers are evaporated and turn into water vapor due to the water being heated by the sun or other means. This water vapor rises into the troposphere…

  • Climate Changes In Howard County

    changes in mean precipitation and timing of precipitation, winter temperature and the summer precipitation. Furthermore, it is crucial to understand that many of these changes will be clearly seen in the relatively near future if measures are not taken to prevent or at least delay them. Each climate variable will undergo a different magnitude of change in the region, and although predictions have been made, these changes are partially determined by human actions. These climate…

  • Factors Affecting The Patterns Of Climate Change

    1. The patterns for the different parameters depend on the season. Atmospheric temperature is always the high in July due to summer. For instance, the atmospheric temperature in Virginia was nearly 0°C in January 2000 but rose to about 25°C in July 2000. This makes sense because temperatures are low in January and high in July. The temperatures started dropping again around October because of the change in season. The amount of precipitation depends on the region. Regions near the ocean…

  • Ce 1440 Water Resources Engineering Case Study

    Carolyn Wehner CEE 1440 Water Resources Engineering Take-Home Final Exam Due: 12/14/16 Introduction: With changing climates, ice caps melting more rapidly therefore causing the water levels of the world to rise rapidly. With this increase of fluid water on the earth water resources engineers are concerned how the excess water will affect infrastructure pertaining to water designs such as dams and reservoirs. Also future engineering designs will have to consider the change in water levels and…

  • Kalahari Tribe

    Location Setting i. Geographical Location: ii. Physical Descriptions: The San Bushmen live in many different parts of Africa. Some parts of this tribe live in Botswana, the Kalahari, Namibia, and the rest of the Southern Africa. The Kalahari is described as closely resembling the terrain of Australian deserts. Physical Setting i. Biomes Ecology: The Kalahari is a sandy, savannah land of South Africa that extends 900,000 square kilometers, covering most of Botswana, Namibia, and Southern…

  • Bioswale Case Study

    Precipitation averages around 34 inches per year, but ranges from 26 inches in the extreme northwest to as much as 38 inches in the southeast. The pattern of precipitation is seasonal with more rain received during the April to September growing season. Measurable precipitation occurs on about 100 days per year. The number days on which amounts exceed 0.5 inch varies from about 15 days in the northwest to 25 days in the southeast. In Des Moines, specifically, over two-thirds of the 34.72 inches…

  • Landforms: Hydrologic Cycle And Where I Live

    earth and back again in a continuous cycle. The stages of this cycle are Evaporation: the process by which water changes from liquid to gas by the sun’s heat, Transport: movement of water though the atmosphere, specifically from over oceans to over land, Condensation: transported water vapor forming into droplets in clouds, Precipitation: when clouds meet cool air over land, precipitation in the form of rain, sleet or snow, is triggered and water returns to the land or sea, Groundwater: a…

  • Abiotic Factors Influencing The Distribution Of Biomes Case Study

    between the two cells. This uplift of warm humid air creates the highest levels of precipitation on earth, this influences the characteristics and distribution of the Tropical Rainforest. Tapio Schneider, Tobias Bischo & Gerald H. Haug (2014) explain that the Intertropical Convergence Zone is dynamic and moves further north during the Northern Hemisphere summer and south during the Southern Hemisphere summer. Usually when the ITCZ is on land it will move further due to larger temperature shifts.…
