The volume of the balloon is reduced but the number of molecules remains the same. There is a greater concentration of gas molecules in the compressed balloon and therefore the pressure is higher. The diagrams should show that the speeds of the gas molecules increase as the can is heated. The pressure increases until the can explodes; and then the gas molecules can escape into the surroundings. Applying Knowledge Under some pressure Page P = F A = 147 N (1 m 0.75 m) = 196 Pa 2.

The Gulf Stream current helps to keep the British Isles and northern Europe warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. 6. The coastal mountains prevent moist ocean air from reaching the interior of British Columbia. 7. El Niño is the period when the Pacific winds get weak and the warm water current starts to move east toward South America. 8.

Point sources are sources of pollution that come from one source, such as an oil spill, or garbage dumped from a boat. 3. Non-point sources of pollution are from many different sources, such as pesticides added to lawns. 4. When it rains, some of the pesticide can get washed into the soil and be absorbed. The pesticide may find its way into ground water. And the ground water may feed into a stream or river. The stream or river then carries the pesticide into a lake or an ocean. 5. The wind carries pollutants from smokestacks and cars high into the air. They mix and dissolve with water vapour, and they form strong acids, which return to Earth as acid rain and acid snow McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited Workbook Answers MHR 21
