Textbook Problem

Assume the average CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is 406 ppm (as of January 2017). The actual concentration of CO2 at different sites will vary. Speculate on whether the concentration of CO2 would be expected to be higher, lower, or the same as this average value in a typical large city.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The variation of concentration of CO2 in a large city should be predicted on the basis of given average concentration value of carbon dioxide.

Concept introduction:

  • Carbon dioxide is one of the major anthropogenic greenhouse gases and its concentration on a large scale, all over the world makes harmful effect to the earth and to the living systems on earth. Its concentration varies in accordance with the changes in season and climate in a particular area.
  • Large increase in the number of automobiles, also enhance the concentration of carbon dioxide in a great extent.
  • Parts per million (ppm): It is one of the important concentration expressing terms, and which describes grams of solute per million grams of total solutions.

    ppm=MassofsoluteMassofsolution×106

Explanation

The season in January month is winter. In this season the average CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is 406ppm. This is the higher concentration value of carbon dioxide in a city it may vary in accordance with the pollution level
