EQ: How does the abiotic factor carbon cycle through ecosystems? Intro Video Warmup Where can you find carbon? Processes of the Carbon Cycle • Respiration – Living things convert sugars and oxygen into water and carbon dioxide , which is “breathed out” and released into the air • Photosynthesis - Plants and algae use light energy from the sun to convert carbon dioxide and water into sugars for growth and chemical energy. • Combustion – The act or process of burning, which releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere • Carbon dioxide can be dissolved into water, where it takes the form of carbonic acid • Coming out of solution of carbonic acid to become carbon dioxide in the air (same process that occurs when you open a soda) • Death and Decomposition - breakdown or decay of organic matter • Fossil Fuels - Over very long periods of time and high pressure, dead organic material can be converted

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
