Chemistry in My Life

By Kenny Strobel

Chemicals found in Manuer

They have nutrients, such as nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium.

What Each Nutrient Does

Basically what they all do is they give nutrients to the soil in the farm fields in America, which helps the crops grow quicker and taller. Given that they have all their nutrients. Though you have to make sure you do not have to much phosphorous and pottasium because if you have to much excess of that you can have water pollutant.

Where do you find these
Chemical Nutrients

You find it in animal pee and poop most of the time. Which makes it easier to put in the field if you are cow/pig farmer usually because it is right there and you do not have to buy it.

What happens to the Products/ByProducts

What happens is the manure creates all sorts of food we eat everyday. Such as corn, beans, sweet corn and all sorts of other plants/ and food.

What are the Environmental Impacts?

Like I said before if you have to make sure you do not have to much phosphorous and potassium because if you have to much excess of that you can have water pollutant. Therefore damaging nearby rivers, streams, and lakes.

Are the Chemicals
endothermic or Exothermic?

Manure is endothermic if it's just in a pile of manure because right on the inside of manure will be hot. But if it's wet it will not be exothermic or endothermic

Who's affected by this chemistry

It affects the soil which helps make the corn/beans to grow bigger, and taller. Also gives it nutrients which helps make the corn healthier and better for you. So it affects all the plants and us humans because we consume it. Also animals it affects because we feed corn/soybeans to them.

How important is this to Chemistry

Without manure plants wouldn't be as big. Which wouldn't feed our animals which give us meat that we eat everyday. Also we wouldn't have as big of plants that we also eat.

Some Interesting FACTS!

Manure was transported by ships in the 16th and 17th century.

Ships kept getting destroyed though and sank.

Ships were then called when carrying manure Ships High In Transit.

Thus it was abbrevated S.H.I.T. and thats where that word was born.
