Process of converting nitrogen gas into ammonia (NH3), which is a usable form.
Ammonia (NH3) is converted to nitrate ions (NO3-).
The conversion of nitrates (NO3-) into nitrogen gas (N2) which is then released into the atmosphere.
A chemical reaction that breaks down compounds into simpler products.
Decomposers (bacteria) convert organic waste into ammonia (NH3).
Nitrogen gas (N2)
78% of the gasses in the atmosphere. This gets converted to ammonia (NH3) and nitrate (NO3-) that plants and algae can use.
A compound of nitrogen and hydrogen. This is the result of Nitrogen gas (N2) once it is "fixed."
A chemical that includes nitrogen and oxygen, often used as a fertilizer. They are inorganic compounds that can be found in nature and in several foods we eat.
