Home Design of the Future
CPT by Emma W (period 4)
Green environment (A1)
Greenhouse Garden (a2)
In my home design, the owner would grow their food indoors in a greenhouse, without the use of pesticides and fertilizers, like the greenhouse farm in the link above. This way the owner can control the climate and grow crops year round, no matter the biome. I will also be avoiding pesticides and fertilizers because it is more eco-friendly and is better for your health (due to the toxic chemicals which could lead to cancer and other health problems).
Mode of Transportation (a3)
Waste Management Systems (a4)
garbage disposal. The waste water, which is unavoidable would be cleaned in an eco-friendly way as shown in the video below, my house is in California, where the weather will not be to cold for this system
Endangered Animal sponsor (a5)
Three Toxic Chemicals (B1)
Calcium Hypochlorite, found in pool cleaning and bleaching agents could be very toxic to pets, kids and adults if not stored properly. calcium hypochlorite should be kept in a cool dry place, because it could self heat or could decompose, which would also release toxic chlorine gas.
Ethylene Glycol, in antifreeze could be very toxic to humans or pets if swallowed, which would result in severe heart damage, brain damage, kidney damage and could cause dizziness.
Identifying the elements in Ethanol (B2)
I chose oxygen as my element to show in the Bohr-Rutherford diagram. Oxygen has 8 protons, the ELP: 8-2= 6 ( which 8 cannot be subtracted from therefore there are 6 on the outer circle) I drew one as well but had difficulty adding it onto the website.
Oxygen classification (B3 & B4)
Source of Electrical Energy (C1)
In my home design, for the most sustainable energy source that will supply enough power night and day, all year round I will use a mixture of solar panels on the homes roof, and small windmills to still gain electrical energy at night. Using solar panels are a very common source of renewable, sustainable energy. although not usually very nice looking, in my home design they will be placed in a stylish fashion. the mini wind turbines will be placed around the outside of the house, since my home is in Malibu beach California, near beaches, the wind http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=malibu+beach is fairly good about 5-20 km/h usually, year round.
For future generations my Electrical energy source is sustainable because it is renewable and lasts for a long time.
