Refridgerator I live in an area where we have sulfur gases in the air and our water.

The solve for the solution is to spray paint all of the copper tubing at the compressor connections , and any of the tubing that you can even if it means laying the machine down on its back to get to them black enemel spray paint will work you choose gloss or satin. it keeps the sulfur gas from attacking the copper

btw take a look at other items in the house that have copper in them light fixtures light swithes recepticals, air conditioning coils
bet that they are tarnished

A (n)_________tells what elements make up a compound and the ratios of the atoms of those elements.

It's called a Formula or Formula of a compound.
H2O, NaCl, H2SO4, I believe that's what you're asking about.
H2O is 2 parts Hydrogen to 1 part Oxygen. (Water)
NaCl is 1 part Sodium to 1 part Chlorine (Salt)
H2SO4 is 2 parts hydrogen, 1 part Sulfur, 4 parts Oxygen (Sulfuric acid)

I live in the rural area and am on well water I'm getting a strong sulfer smell when showering and dishes.

The smell is actually not sulfur but Hydrogen Sulfide or H2SO4. It comes from a harmless bacteria that when collect in large quantities produce that sulfur smell. It is common to smell more of it in the hot water than cold due to the fact that the bacteria are more prone to grow on metallic surfaces than others and your hot water tank contains a sacrificial anode or rod that grows these bacteria really well. You have several choices to help with the problem. You can put any number of systems on your well equipment such as an aerator, a chlorine injection system, a charcoal filter and so on, you can also reduce the problem by having a plumber remove the sacrificial rod from your water heater, but do so knowing why it is in there in the first place. This problem has been around in southern states for a long time and varies by season in severity and there are many ways that people deal with it. You simply have to choose the method that you prefer based on cost, tolerance and effectiveness. I can tell you that I have a chlorine injection system and a charcoal tank to remove chlorine residue and have dealt with this for over 30 years. Good Luck to you and thanks for asking on Fixya!

What is the purpose of the magnesium rod inside the water heater (bock)

These anode rods, sometimes made from aluminum, prevent corrosion. The rod emits ions that line the tank and help prevent corrosion. The rod isn't solid magnesium or aluminum; it has an iron core. If your hot water smells of sulfur (rotten eggs), the anode rod has gone bad or there is a presence of hydrogen sulfur gas that is overwhelming the rod. Usually replacing the rod will stop the odor, but sometimes chlorination of the tank is necessary.

The water has turned green despite the fact that we have been vacumning the pool every day. There is lots of algae on the bottom. It appears like the algae is not being killed by the salt water system. ...

How long are you running the system?? What is you chlorine level???.. To immediately bring your pool to the correct chlorine level, you either must up your cycle time, or shock your pool...I have a 18X33X48 pool..14,500 gallon pool and I run my system for 12 hrs and 10 hrs chlorinate and my water is crystal clear.. My chlorine level is in the 3 to 4 ppm.. If it climbs above 4, I lower the cycle time...After you shock or up your level, vacuum again to remove all the dead algae.. If you live in an area that is hot , you will need to run longer cycles.. Right now temps are ranging from 95 to 111.. yes, very hot... I hope this helps you and good luck...

2SO2 + O2 -------> V2O5 2SO3 which of the chemical symbols is the catalyst?

(s) + O2(g) -----> SO2(g)
The gases are mixed with more air then cleaned by electrostatic precipitation to remove any particulate matter
The mixture of sulfur dioxide and air is heated to 450oC and subjected to a pressure of 101.3 - 202.6 kPa (1 -2 atmospheres) in the presence of a vanadium catalyst (vanadium (V) oxide) to produce sulfur trioxide, SO3(g), with a yield of 98%.
2SO2(g) + O2(g) -----> 2SO3(g)

Just rented a home in the country the water smells like rotten eggs

Hydrogen Sulfide Gas can occur in wells, and gives the water a characteristic "rotten egg" taste or odor.

  • Install an activated carbon filter. This option is only effective for low hydrogen sulfide levels, The gas is trapped by the carbon filter is saturated.
  • Install an oxidizing filter, such as a "manganese greensand" filter. Manganese greensand filters are often used to treat iron problems in water. The device consists of manganese greensand media, which is sand coated with manganese dioxide. The hydrogen sulfide gas in the water is changed to tiny particles of sulfur as it passes through the filter. The filter must be periodically regenerated, using potassium permanganate, before the capacity of the greensand is exhausted.
  • Install an oxidation-filtration system. These systems utilize a chemical feed pump to inject an oxidizing chemical, such as chlorine, into the water supply line prior to a storage or mixing tank. When sufficient contact time is allowed, the oxidizing chemical changes the hydrogen sulfide to sulfur, which is then removed by a particulate filter, such as a manganese greensand filter.

    What is the air pump for? Sounds like an airplane when I start the vehicle. What I disconnect the pump, what affect will that have on the car's running?

    The air pump is an emission control device. It is not going to really affect the running of your car as far as performance; however, if you live in an area where they test for emissions, it could definitely cause you to flunk an emissions test.

    Smells like something has died in my lg split inverter air conditioner

    No joke, something probably did die in there. I have found rats in the drain pan or caught up in the fanmotor. Check this first. Second you can pour in some Miltons (solution used for washing baby bottles) or a mild mix of pool chlorine and water, directly into the drainpan. If you open the front cover, this is the plastic collection pan directly below the aluminium fins where the condensate water drips into. The chlorine will sanitize this area and should help remove the smell. But you should check and remove whatever died there in the first place.

    Find a well water person in your area that can help you with the sulfur problem.

    They may recommend a filter system, or they may suggest a air rader for your well, what this does is it mixes air with the water before your system gets its and the sulfur fouls out and drops out in your well.

    Get a guarantee and give it some time, with a money back guarantee, or a couple year warranty.

    THey may not be able to solve your problem, a Friend had to dig a new well deeper.
