It comes as no surprise, therefore, that by far the largest compositional group of minerals is the silicate group, all of which are compounds containing silicon and oxygen, and most of which contain other elements as well. Because this group of minerals is so large, it is subdivided on the basis of crystal structure, by the ways in which the silicon and oxygen atoms are linked together.

In minerals, most bonds are ionic or covalent, or a mix of the two. indd Page 26 11/17/09 7:40:59 PM user-s180 Outer energy level filled with 8 electrons Inner energy level filled with 2 electrons Nucleus with 11 protons Na Sodium (Na+) Energy levels filled with 8 electrons each Energy level filled with 2 electrons Nucleus with 17 protons /Volumes/204/MHDQ173/mon24085/0073524085/mon24085_pagefiles in this context, means not produced solely by living organisms or by biological processes.

22 Section One Foundations 2. t where N 5 the growing quantity (number of people, tons of iron ore consumed annually, dollars in a bank account, or whatever); N0 is the initial quantity at the start of the time period of interest; G is growth rate expressed in percent per year, and “percent” means “parts per hundred”; and t is the time in years over which growth occurs. Keep in mind that doubling time, D, is the length of time required for N to double. 3. Select a single country or small set of related countries; examine recent and projected population growth rates in detail, including the factors contributing to the growth rates and trends in those rates.
