Extension for Lesson 3.1 - Pollution Control - The Desulfurization Process



Description: In this lesson students will apply their knowledge of balancing chemical reactions and stoichiometry to understand the process of desulfurization, an air pollution control method. First they will be taught why it is harmful to our environment and human health to have extra SO2 from industrial processes in our atmosphere. Next they’ll be asked to solve a problem using stoichiometry and the desulfurization process. This can be used as an extension to Tread Lightly lesson 3.1 - Climate Change Policy and Solutions Process: Part A - Sulfur Dioxide information, balancing equations and stoichiometric calculations. Part B - Desulfurization Process Part C - Final Problem (assessment)
