Chemistry C1 4.4 Cleaner fuels.

HideShow resource information
What do many scientists believe that carbon dioxide from burning fuels causes?
Global warming.
1 of 11
What causes acid rain?
Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, these gases dissolve in water droplets and react with oxygen in the air to produce acid rain.
2 of 11
What causes global dimming?
Particulates.
3 of 11
What does burning any fuel that contains carbon produce?
Carbon dioxide.
4 of 11
What kind of gas is carbon dioxide?
A greenhouse gas.
5 of 11
What does the incomplete combustion of fuels containing carbon produce?
The poisonous gas carbon monoxide.
6 of 11
What do the tiny solid particulates produced when fuels containing carbon are burned but there is incomplete combustion?
Global dimming.
7 of 11
What can we do to prevent harmful substances from being released into the atmosphere when burning fuels?
Remove harmful substances from waste gases before they are released, sulphur dioxide is removed from the waste gases from power stations before they are burned.
8 of 11
How is the release of harmful substances from cars reduced?
Exhaust systems of cars are fitted with catalytic converters to remove carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides. Filters remove particulates.
9 of 11
What is the product of incomplete combustion that scientists believe causes global dimming?
Particulates.
10 of 11
What two methods are used to reduce the amount of sulfur dioxide produced by burning fuels?
Remove sulfur dioxide from waste gases after the fuel has been burned, remove sulfur from fuels before they are burned.
