Chemistry 152 Spring 2010- Exam 2 Info Sheet Dr. Pollard The steady expansion of population and industrial civilization in the past two hundred years has had a strong impact on the quality of the air that we breathe. The pervasive effects of human-made atmospheric emissions are increasingly manifest, and the need to control them is influencing to a greater degree the development of technology, particularly in the energy and transportation sectors. A wide range of chemical substances can pollute the air, but the ones generally viewed as needing control measures include nitrogen oxides (such as NO and NO

Unformatted text preview: 2 , generally called NO x ) and sulfur oxides (mainly SO 2 and SO 3 , also referred to as SO x ). Our ability to control the emission of these substances into the atmosphere, as well as their effect in our environment, highly depends on our ability to understand the chemical processes in which they are involved. The central goal of this assessment is that you demonstrate that you can apply chemical thinking to explain and make predictions about the thermodynamic and kinetic properties of chemical reactions involving NO x and SO x in the atmosphere....
