co2 control for classroom science

Demand-Controlled Ventilation (DCV) - SVACH

Human respiration and combustion appliances generate CO2, which is a minor pollutant. DCV controls use CO2 as a surrogate. The term surrogate means that ventilation controls use CO2 concentration to control the concentration of other occupant-related pollutants. Designers assume that controlling CO2 controls all occupancy-related pollutants ...

CO2 Meter: A do-it-yourself carbon dioxide measuring ...

In this paper we report on CO2 Meter, a do-it-yourself carbon dioxide measuring device for the classroom. Part of the current measures for dealing with the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is proper ventilation in indoor settings. This is especially important in schools with students coming back to the classroom even with high incidents rates. Static ventilation patterns do not consider the individual ...

Sick Classrooms Caused by Rising CO2 Levels

13/01/2014· The accepted standard CO2 level in a classroom is 1000. That level is easy to maintain when a classroom is empty. Fill the classroom up with a bunch of students and the level of CO2 rises dramatically. That’s because carbon dioxide makes up a part of every breath you exhale causing the levels to rise as more people gather. “…increasing classroom ventilation rates, above the State ...

On the use of CO2 sensors in schools ... - Science Task Force

29/10/2020· A desirable scenario would be for a school to equip each classroom, plus the common rooms (lunchroom, library, etc.), with a CO2 sensor. The training needed by school staff to respond to the warnings by the CO2 sensor is negligible. For pupils, this can represent a learning experience about the use of technology and a way to feel proactive about the pandemic. The visual feedback from CO2 ...

CO2 Control In School Classrooms - AirTest Technologies

CO2 Sensors will automatically regulate fresh air delivery so that over-ventilation does not occur. In fact if fresh air is being delivered from another location such as an open window, hallway or another unoccupied classroom, the sensors will react to this source of fresh air and adjust the ventilation rate accordingly. CO 2 control is also an ideal way to control ventilation based on ...

CO2 Dashboards for Ventilation Monitoring in Schools

In February 2020, the CO2 in this particular classroom was reaching peaks of 6,000ppm and for a large portion of the time, the CO2 is greater than 1,500ppm. In October 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the schools were requested to keep all windows open with the result that the CO2 remained below 1,000ppm on any given day. This presented clear evidence of the impact of ventilation on CO2 in ...

Classroom Activity: Carbon Dioxide - Sources and Sinks ...

17/07/2007· Carbon dioxide has a characteristic that enables students to detect CO 2 in a classroom setting. When dissolved in water, carbon dioxide forms a weak acid, called carbonic acid. The chemical bromothymol blue (BTB) is a sensitive indicator of the presence of acid. When gas containing CO 2 is bubbled through a BTB solution, carbonic acid forms and the indicator turns from dark blue to green ...

CO2 In the Classroom |

If you are a parent, do you think about the air quality in your child’s classroom? You should. Every classroom requires a constant flow of fresh, conditioned air to make it comfortable for students. In the past, this was not a problem. Pre-WWII school buildings “leaked” fresh air into the building around windows and through open doors. Although “leaky” buildings insure fresh air ...
