The Slow Carbon Cycle. Through a series of chemical reactions and tectonic activity, carbon takes between 100-200 million years to move between rocks, soil, ocean, and atmosphere in the slow carbon cycle.
Atmospheric carbon combines with water to form a weak acid—carbonic acid—that falls to the surface inrain.
the plants absorb the co2
dead animals give off c2
the combustion gives off co2
Animals respire and gives off CO2
Animals eat plants which contain carbon
H2O goes back up to the air and starts a cycle over again
