5 True/False questions
TRI (Toxic Release Inventory) → community right-to-know toxin release reports from factories, refineries, hard rock mines, power plants, and chemical manufacturers
high-level wastes → (source: auto exhaust) (effects: acidification of lakes, respiratory irritation, leads to smog & ozone) (Equation for acid formation: NO + O2 = NO2 + H2O = HNO3) (Reduction: catalytic converter)
aquifer → rate at which work is done
heat island → Canada & Venezuela have the largest deposits; an underground sand deposit permeated with a thick, asphalt-like oil known as bitumen. The bitumen can be separated from the sand by heating.
nuclear fission → rain containing acids that form in the atmosphere when industrial gas emissions (especially sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides) combine with water
