Caurbon dioxide (chemical formula CO2) is a naiturally occurrin chemical compound componed o twa oxygen atoms covalently bonded tae a single caurbon atom. It is a gas at staundart temperatur an pressur an exists in Yird's atmosphere in this state, as a trace gas at a concentration o 0.039 per cent bi volume.[1]

As pairt o the caurbon cycle, plants, algae, an cyanobacteria uise licht energy tae photosynthesize carbohydrate frae caurbon dioxide an watter, wi oxygen produced as a waste product.[2] Houiver, photosynthesis cannae occur in daurkness an at nicht some caurbon dioxide is produced bi plants durin respiration.[3] Caurbon dioxide is produced bi combustion o coal or hydrocaurbons, the fermentation o succars in beer an winemakin an bi respiration o aw livin organisms. It is exhaled in the breath o humans an land ainimals. It is emittit frae volcanoes, het springs, geysers an ither places whaur the yird's crust is thin an is freed frae caurbonate rocks bi dissolution. CO2 is an aa foond in lochs, at depth unner the sea an commingled wi ile an gas deposits.[4]

The environmental effects o caurbon dioxide are o signeeficant interest. Caurbon dioxide is an important greenhoose gas, absorbin heat radiation frae Yird's surface whilk itherwise wad hae left the atmosphere. Atmospheric caurbon dioxide is the primary soorce o caurbon in life on Yird an its concentration in Yird's pre-industrial atmosphere syne late in the Precambrian eon wis regulatit bi photosynthetic organisms. Burnin o caurbon-based fuels syne the industrial revolution haes rapidly increased concentrations o atmospheric caurbon dioxide, increasin the rate o global wairmin an causin anthropogenic climate chynge. It is an aa a major soorce o ocean acidification syne it dissolves in watter tae furm caurbonic acid,[5] whilk is a weak acid as its ionization in watter is incomplete.
