What are Carbon Nanotubes? - ... A chiral (n,m) nanotube has a spiral symmetry and the chiral angle is between 0° and 30°. Carbon nanotubes are not only structures that have the simplest chemical composition and atomic bonding configuration, but also, at the same time, these structures have amazing properties which is the actual reason of them being studied. They have unparalleled electrical, mechanical and optical properties and show great thermal and electrical conductivity on the level of other conductive materials. Although they have negligible dimension, these structures are stronger than any other material....   [tags: carbon atoms, medical applications] 545 words

The link between the number of carbon atoms in a fuel with the amount of energy it releases - The link between the number of carbon atoms in a fuel with the amount of energy it releases Alcohols generally belong to compounds whose molecules are based on chains of carbon atoms. They usually contain one oxygen atom, which is joined to a carbon atom by a singular bond. This makes them different to other compounds. The oxygen atom is joined to the hydrogen atom as well as the carbon atom, which makes the oxygen a part of a hydroxyl group. These atoms are generally a part of a hydrocarbon chain....   [tags: GCSE Chemistry Coursework Investigation] 2717 words

Characteristic of Organic Compounds - What are organic compounds, you may ask. Well organic compounds are compounds that always contain carbon, or any compound that contains a carbon atom. But some describe organic compounds as any of a large class of chemical compounds in which one or more atoms of carbon are covalently linked to atoms of other elements, most commonly are hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. But there are a few exceptions to this organic rule, which are carbon monoxide, carbonates, carbon dioxide, cyanides, cyanates, carbides, and thyocyanates, which are all considered inorganic....   [tags: Carbon Atoms, Chemical Compounds]

Hydrocarbons in Our Lives - Hydrocarbons are compounds formed by carbon and hydrogen atoms. They are used as fuels to produce energy in incomplete and complete combustion reactions. Incomplete combustion occurs when hydrocarbons react with a small amount of oxygen (O2), whilst complete combustion occurs when hydrocarbons react with large amounts of oxygen. Incomplete combustions produce water (H2O), carbon monoxide (CO) and/or soot (C). The CO and soot produced from incomplete combustion can have harmful consequences on humans and the environment....   [tags: carbon and hydrogen atoms, toxic gas]

Various factors such as land-use history, age of a forest stand, and potential feedback processes must all be taken into account when determining if forests are a feasible method of climate change miti...   [tags: Ecosystems] 2418 words

Calculating Your Carbon Footprint - Introduction: Over the years footprints have been used to tell the details of the species that marked it. In the case of carbon footprint it is the amount of Carbon Dioxide or other carbon compounds (green house gases) emitted into the atmosphere by human activities. By simply going about our daily lives of driving to work or running home appliances we are producing more CO2 because each is powered by energy that rely on the combustion of fossil fuels. The burning of fossil fuels by humans emits 98% of the CO2 in the atmosphere making it the largest source of Carbon dioxide emissions and so it is a major cause of global warming (Dowdey, 2013)....   [tags: globalm warming, environmental effects]
