The NPCA reported ” the average rainfall in Mammoth Cave National Park is 10 times more acidic than natural.” From this information and that in your text, estimate the pH of rainfall… Read more →


Global warming results in an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Dissolving of carbon dioxide in water makes it even more acidic- formation of Carbonic acid (H2CO3). Due to carbon dioxide being a greenhouse gas, and with the surge in CO2 levels, it will result in some parts of the world being warmer. Warmer ocean water… Read more →


What is global warming? Global warming is a gradual increase in the global temperature of the Earth which is caused by the increased of greenhouse gases in the air. These greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, CFCs, oxides of nitrogen and other pollutants. Natural events such as volcanoes erupting and human activities such as agricultural activities are believed to be contributing… Read more →
