Definitions for "Nitrogen"
A colorless nonmetallic element of atomic number 7, tasteless and odorless, comprising four fifths of the atmosphere by volume in the form of molecular nitrogen (N2). It is chemically very inert in the free state, and as such is incapable of supporting life (hence the name azote still used by French chemists); but it forms many important compounds, such as ammonia, nitric acid, the cyanides, etc, and is a constituent of all organized living tissues, animal or vegetable. Symbol N. Atomic weight 14.007. It was formerly regarded as a permanent noncondensible gas, but was liquefied in 1877 by Cailletet of Paris, and Pictet of Geneva, and boils at -195.8 ° C at atmospheric pressure. Liquid nitrogen is used as a refrigerant to store delicate materials, such as bacteria, cells, and other biological materials.
An element. A high nitrogen content in water, together with phosphorus and organic substances, can lead to increased biological activity in water, known as eutrophication.
A nonmetallic element that constitutes nearly four-fifths of the air by volume, occurring as a colorless, odorless, almost inert diatomic gas in various minerals and in all proteins. It is used in a wide variety of important manufacturers, including ammonia, nitric acid, TNT and fertilizers.
See HPA, oh and never call it Nitrous... that makes you look like a newbie.
HPA - High Pressure Air - used in "high-end" competition play. Tends to keep it's consistency in all types of weather conditions.
A chemical element with atomic number 7. Nitrogen was independently discovered in 1772 by Daniel Rutherford, Jospeh Priestly, Karl Wilhelm Scheele, and Henry Cavendish, but Rutherford is usually credited for its discovery. The name nitrogen is derived from nitrum, Latin for soda producing. Symbol: .
Chemical dissolved in blood and found in air. Also found in fertilisers.
Chemical Symbol N
Nitrogen increases the strength, hardness and machinability of steel, but it decreases the ductility and toughness. In aluminum killed steels, nitrogen combines with the aluminum to provide grain size control. Nitrogen can reduce the effect of boron on the hardenability of steels.
A C++ interface to the Macintosh operating system, based on Apple's Carbon interface.
Present in small quantities in type 1 diamonds, the cause of yellow colouration.
