The air entering the chamber is free from water-vapor and carbon dioxide.
The resulting products of this combustion, if it is complete, are carbon dioxide and water-vapor.
In fact, every minute thousands of barrels of water-vapor are rising into the atmosphere from the surface of the ocean.
The warmth and the habitability of the earth's surface is due to the presence of water-vapor and carbon-dioxide in the atmosphere.
The spectrum of the planet revealed strong oxygen and water-vapor lines, surprisingly little nitrogen.
Great changes may also take place in the amounts of carbon dioxide and water-vapor under certain conditions.
A similar calculation holds true with regard to the water-vapor and oxygen.
As the water-vapor is absorbed by the sulphuric acid, there is a slight increase in volume of the acid.
Any variations in the residual amount of carbon dioxide or water-vapor likewise affect the oxygen.
The total volume of air (which may be designated as V) includes the volumes of carbon dioxide, water-vapor, oxygen, and nitrogen.
|water vapor |
Water in its gaseous state, especially in the atmosphere and at a temperature below the boiling point. Water vapor in the atmosphere serves as the raw material for cloud and rain formation. It also helps regulate the Earth's temperature by reflecting and scattering radiation from the Sun and by absorbing the Earth's infrared radiation. See also vapor.
