Parent meeting reminder/College visit hosts needed
View this email in your browser
Don't forget about the Senior Parent Meeting tonight (Monday, 8/31) at 6:00pm in the cafeteria!!

Also, we are still in need of many hosts for the visiting college representatives that come to our campus. Please consider taking an hour of your time to help with this important service. With over 90 colleges coming to WSHS each fall, our counselors simply do not have time to greet each and every one of them! With parents taking over this function, the counselors will have more time to serve our children.
Follow this link to sign up online. The instructions are included in the sign up.

Thanks and have a great week!

The Nitrogen Cycle

Water Cycle

The letter N for nitrogen

The nitrogen cycle describes how nitrogen moves between plants, animals, bacteria, the atmosphere (the air), and soil in the ground. Nitrogen is an important element to all life on Earth. 


Different Nitrogen States 


For Nitrogen to be used by different life forms on Earth, it must change into different states. Nitrogen in the atmosphere, or air, is N2. Other important states of nitrogen include Nitrates (N03), Nitrites (NO2), and Ammonium (NH4). 


Nitrogen Cycle 


This picture shows the flow of the nitrogen cycle. The most important part of the cycle is bacteria. Bacteria helps the nitrogen change between states so it can be used. When nitrogen is absorbed by the soil, different bacteria helps it to change states so it can be absorbed by plants. Animals then get their nitrogen from the plants. 



Processes in the Nitrogen Cycle


Fixation - Fixation is the first step in the process of making nitrogen usable by plants. Here bacteria change nitrogen into ammonium.


Nitrification - This is the process by which ammonium gets changed into nitrates by bacteria. Nitrates are what the plants can then absorb.

Assimilation - This is how plants get nitrogen. They absorb nitrates from the soil into their roots. Then the nitrogen gets used in amino acids, nucleic acids, and chlorophyll.


Ammonification - This is part of the decaying process. When a plant or animal dies, decomposers like fungi and bacteria turn the nitrogen back into ammonium so it can reenter the nitrogen cycle.


Denitrification - Extra nitrogen in the soil gets put back out into the air. There are special bacteria that perform this task as well.


Why is nitrogen important to life? 


Plants and animals could not live without nitrogen. It is an important part of many cells and processes such as amino acids, proteins, and even our DNA. It is also needed to make chlorophyll in plants, which plants use in photosynthesis to make their food and energy. 


How have humans altered the nitrogen cycle? 


Unfortunately, human activity has altered the cycle. We do this by adding nitrogen into the soil with fertilizer as well as other activities that put more nitrous oxide gas into the atmosphere. This adds in more nitrogen than is needed by normal cycle and upsets the cycle's balance. 


Fun Facts


• Around 78% of the atmosphere is nitrogen. However, this is mostly not usable by animals and plants.


• Nitrogen is used in fertilizer to help plants grow faster.
• Nitrous oxide is a greenhouse gas. Too much of it can also cause acid rain.
• Nitrogen has no color, odor, or taste.

         It is used in many explosives.

• About 3% of your body weight is nitrogen.




1. What percent of air is nitrogen? 78 %


2. Why is Nitrogen essential to life? amino and nucleic acids


3. How do plants and animals get nitrogen if not from the atmosphere? nitrogen fixation


4. What are nitrogen fixing bacteria? bacteriathat convert nitrogen into ammonia that is used by plants


5. what is a major reservoir for ammonia? soil


6. why do herbivores need nitrogen? aminoacids, nucleic acids, proteins


7. what is denitrificationperformed by bacteria and fungi and break down nitrates in soil to release nitrogen in atmosphere.
