Water cycle is the cycle that H2O molecules go through. The nitrogen cycle is the cycle that nitrogen goes through as it changes from nitrate to nitrite to ammonia, all by bac…terias in the soil.
In both cycles, the atmosphere is a major reservoir. Both cycles involve plants as transformers of the nutrients
both cycles transfer either carbon or nitrogen from the ocean to the atmosphere or from the atmosphere to the ocean.
All three are important life-giving cycles. Every living organism needs water, carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorous to survive.and al play a very important role as well.
It's different from other cycles because it can't be found in the gas state, only on land, water and sediment
Similarities: Both of these are biogeochemical cycles,meaning that the chemicals spend a portion of the cycle in living things (hence the bio) and a portion in the nonliving …environment (geo). They are also similar in that they both recycle nutrients that are essential to all organisms. Finally, they both move from the soil into plants via the roots, and then to animals through ingestion, and they can be returned to the environment via decomposition. Differences: They are different in the manner that they cycle. Nitrogen gas is quite abundant (78% of the air around us is nitrogen). It cannot be used by plants or animals in its gaseous form though. In order for it to be useful, it has to undergo nitrification (Nitrogen gas being changed into a usable form). This is carried out by bacteria that live in nodules on the roots of some plants (like beans). Once the nitrogen is used by the plant and makes its way to an animal, it can be released through decomposition or urination. Once it is back in the soil, another type of bacteria cause denitrification, which turns it back into nitrogen gas. Carbon, on the other hand, requires no special processing by bacteria prior to plants and animals being able to use it. Plants take in carbon dioxide and use it to make sugar. Animals eat this sugar and incorporate it into their body. Some of it is released as the carbon dioxide that we exhale.Sources:http://users.rcn.com/jkimball.ma.ultranet/BiologyPages/N/...http://www.cotf.edu/ete/modules/carbon/efcarbon.html
The cycling of carbon between the atmosphere, land, water, and organisms. But the nitrogen is between the environment and organisms.
plans take them both in and convert them both to a form we (and other animals) can use - sugars and proteins. decomposers are the type of bacteria that break dead things d…own - so convert the carbon in us to the CO2 form or into organic material in the soil and they also convert the nitrogen in living things into ammonium in the soil. the nitrogen fixing bacteria turn the nitrogen from the soil also into the ammonium. the ammonium is converted into nitrates by nitrifying bacteria which can be then used by plants and then we eat the plants...
they are totally different. the nitrogen cycle is how waste is converted by bacteria into ammonia, then nitrite, then nitrate, which is used by plants, and the plants are eate…n, and pooped out. the water cycle is when water in a river goes to the ocean, then evaporates, then is rained onto the ground, then seeps into a river, etc.
provide living things with the necessities of life and do not need people to activate the cycles
A water cycle, nitrogen cycle and carbon cycle are all considered biogeochemical cycles. All these cycles are needed to sustain life on Earth. The water cycle is the const…ant movement of water on, above and below the Earth's surface. The nitrogen cycle is the conversion of nitrogen between its different chemical forms. The carbon cycle the exchange of carbon amid Earth's various spheres and the atmosphere.
Phosphorus generally does not exist as gas
Biological cycles ;-)
They all have oxygen.
all of the cycles (water, nitrogen, and carbon cycles) are the same because they are all cycles that have to do with the atmosphere.
to create a water cycle of carbon dixide.
