I was just wondering if completed this right?
It is estimated that the greater Atlanta area
(where KSU is located) loses 50 acres of trees per day to development. If we assume that the cut trees are burned or mulched, how much CO2 will this release into the atmosphere in a year? (Hint: you will need to use the mass conversion factor (229,345.09) for carbon to carbon dioxide value you calculated in the first part of the lab.)
CO2 released per year = 4,185,547,892.5 kg CO2
50 acres/day X 365 days/yr = 18,250 acres/yr
229,345.09 kg CO2 / acre carbon cycling X 18,250 acres/yr = CO2 released per year = 4,185,547,892.5 kg CO2 / year carbon cycling
Yes this is correct. Values given: CO2 removed from (or released into) the atmosphere... View the full answer
