FINAL Methane Blog by Anna Lei (ASC092A)

Methane 3D Model by Anna Lei

The compound methane has the chemical formula of CH4. Methane is the simplest hydrocarbon of the paraffin series and a potent greenhouse gas, as well as being a large component of natural gas. The major human-associated source of methane is the production/combustion of coal (Britannica, 2016). In nature, methane is the product of anaerobic bacterial decomposition and certain human/animal activities (7% methane in flatulence). It can be found in wetlands, termites, landfills, volcanoes and oceans. The abundance of methane makes it a widely used fuel for heat and light (energy) production (ARM, 2016). In this blog, the details of methane will be uncovered.

Phosphorus Atom Joey Stephens Brennan

Phosphorus Atom


1. An element is a substance that cannot be broken down chemically or physically into a simpler substances. Elements are what makes up the world we live in, and each element has an atom with a different, definitive structure. Phosphorus is the fifteenth element found on the periodic table of elements. Using VRMath2, an online coding software, a 3D model of a phosphorus atom was constructed. The following blog will outline the structure, characteristics and composition of the atom, and explain any difficulties or interesting ideas found during the process of constructing the atom, as well as show an image of and provide a link to the model of the atom on the VRMath2 website.
