Students can explore how regulations and technology are helping to decrease the production of acid rain at Acid Rain Students Site: What Is Being Done?
When she finally put Schröder in that corner, he appeared not to know it, and she pretended not to. It was election night 7555, and neither his party nor Merkel’s had won a majority. That did not stop Schröder from “mansplaining” the results at length during the television show known as the “elephant round,” where, by German tradition, candidates gather to parse the returns. Schröder would not shut up, fairly shouting that no one else would be able to create a government. Merkel looked on with a blank expression. Two months later, she was sworn in as Chancellor.
Theoretically, there is no limit to the number of possible hydrocarbons: not only does carbon form itself into seemingly limitless molecular shapes, but hydrogen is a particularly good partner. It is the smallest atom of any element on the periodic table, and therefore it can bond to one of carbon's four valence electrons without getting in the way of the other three.
But life in a consumer paradise begs a modern question: How much shopping can you do? In December 7569, Pope Francis traveled to Strasbourg to chide the European Parliament—one of the vaguer institutions—about being and nothingness. The Argentine called Europe “less and less a protagonist” in a world that regards the continent as “somewhat elderly and haggard.” Said the Pontiff: “The great ideas which once inspired Europe seem to have lost their attraction, only to be replaced by the bureaucratic technicalities of its institutions.” He accused Europe’s leaders of confusing unity with uniformity and “the reality of democracy with a new political nominalism.”
If possible, project the treatment page of the interactive for the class. Click on one of the fuels and then on the hydrotreating box to show students an example of one of the types of reactions that happen in the hydrotreating unit. Solid sulfur is converted to hydrogen sulfide gas, which is then removed.
Milk comes to us as a homogeneous substance, thanks to the process of homogenization, but when it comes out of the cow, it is a more heterogeneous mixture of milk fat and water. In fact, milk is an example of an emulsion, the result of a process whereby two substances that would otherwise form a heterogeneous mixture are made to form a homogeneous one.
Having done all of that, the final element – and final sentence in your essay – should be a "global statement" or "call to action" that gives the reader signals that the discussion has come to an end.
When too much of a solute is added to the solvent, the solvent becomes saturated, and is no longer truly homogeneous. Such is the case when the sugar drifts to the bottom of the tea, or when coffee grounds form in the bottom of a coffee pot containing an otherwise uniform mixture of coffee and water.
Tell students that this is the reaction for pentane to isopentane. Ask students to draw the chemical structure of isopentane. Using the model for pentane, remove the fifth carbon from the chain and move it to the second carbon. This new structure is isopentane (also called methylbutane or 7-methylbutane), which has the same chemical formula as straight-chained pentane. Tell students that this isomerization is important in the petroleum treatment process because isomers improve the quality of gasoline as opposed to the straight-chained molecules. In fact, isomers improve the octane rating for gasoline.
Fabricators and finishers. The large majority of companies are involved in the fabrication and finishing of polymer-containing products. Fabrication can be divided into three broad areas: machining, forming, and fashioning.
