  • pure nitrogen
  • In an atmosphere of pure nitrogen, animals died and flames were extinguished. (wikipedia.org)
  • Where the solid is not pure nitrogen, the vapour pressure can be estimated using Raoult's law in which the pressure is reduced by the molar concentration. (wikipedia.org)
  • liquid nitrogen
  • by evaporating vapour from solid nitrogen getting down to 48 K. Solid nitrogen is normally made in a laboratory by evaporating liquid nitrogen in a vacuum. (wikipedia.org)
  • Compared to the energy needed for a cryogenic air separation plant and the energy needed to transport the liquid nitrogen from the plant to the facility, generated nitrogen consumes less energy and creates far fewer greenhouse gases. (wikipedia.org)
  • occurs
  • Give a definition for each of the following and explain where each occurs in the nitrogen cycle. (furman.edu)
  • What occurs when a plant is under nitrogen stress (too little nitrogen)? (furman.edu)
  • It occurs naturally in ice caps on Earth, and is believed to be important in the outer Solar System on moons such as Titan and Triton which have a cold nitrogen atmosphere. (wikipedia.org)
  • organic
  • You can safely apply more than that if you're using an organic fertilizer (derived from plant or animal waste), a fertilizer that contains mostly water insoluble nitrogen, or a controlled-release fertilizer. (garden.org)
  • Organic nitrogen may be in the form of a living organism, humus or in the intermediate products of organic matter decomposition. (wikipedia.org)
  • When a plant or animal dies or an animal expels waste, the initial form of nitrogen is organic. (wikipedia.org)
  • form
  • others require intermediate nitrogen-fixers (like fungi) to turn the nitrogen into a usable form. (harvard.edu)
  • For human bones, the assumption of about 5% nitrogen in the bone, mostly in the form of collogen, allows fairly consistent dating techniques. (wikipedia.org)
  • Solid nitrogen is the solid form of the element nitrogen. (wikipedia.org)
  • Even at the low temperatures of solid nitrogen it is fairly volatile and can sublime to form an atmosphere, or condense back into nitrogen frost. (wikipedia.org)
  • Compared to other materials, solid nitrogen loses cohesion at low pressures and flows in the form of glaciers when amassed. (wikipedia.org)
  • When the temperature is raised to 113K the amorphous phase changes to a crystalline form, and trapped nitrogen converts some ice into a clathrate. (wikipedia.org)
  • The processes of the nitrogen cycle transform nitrogen from one form to another. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many of those processes are carried out by microbes, either in their effort to harvest energy or to accumulate nitrogen in a form needed for their growth. (wikipedia.org)
  • The diagram besides shows how these processes fit together to form the nitrogen cycle. (wikipedia.org)
  • atmosphere
  • Another way to produce it, without using applied pressure, is to first make amorphous solid water by condensing water vapour at 77 K. This absorbs nitrogen gas at a pressure of 1 atmosphere. (wikipedia.org)
  • atoms
  • The instability of NI 3 and NI 3 · NH 3 can be attributed to the large steric strain caused by the three large iodine atoms being held in proximity to each other around the relatively tiny nitrogen atom. (wikipedia.org)
  • The instability of NI3 and NI3 · NH3 can be attributed to the large steric strain caused by the three large iodine atoms being held in proximity to each other around the relatively tiny nitrogen atom. (wikipedia.org)
  • No vibration of the two nitrogen atoms is involved, because the atom-atom distance does not change with the electronic transition. (wikipedia.org)
