Spinning wheels of the carbon cycle: Carbon from gasoline to plant material part of ACM Pedagogic Resources:ACM/FaCE:Projects:Integrating Sustainability into the Undergraduate Curriculum:Activities
Students will determine the quantity of carbon dioxide released by driving 100 km in their vehicle of choice and then determine the amount of photosynthetic activity required during that time period to offset this carbon dioxide production. The speed limit for this trip is 100 km/hour. A list of plants and their photosynthetic characteristics will be provided.
