Flashcards in NO17 A-1-1-11-1 Deck (31):
Colorless to light-brown liquids, react slowly with water, yielding hydrolytic products?
nonpersistent, cause muscular spasms and death within minutes?
odorless, amber colored liquid similar appearance to motor oil?
oil liquid that is heavier than water, colorless to amber, slightly soluble, may persist in water for long periods?
Mustard and distilled mustard
gasoline kerosene, acetone, diesel fuel , are helpful in washing away these type of contaminate?
Blisters - mustard and distilled mustard (H, HD)
mustard is very persistent lasting sever days in open areas at normal temperatures and longer in the cold? T/F?
how many hours does it take for mustard to start showing severe burns after exposure?
dark-liquid agents are slightly soluble?
Nitrogen Mustards (HN -1-2-3)
brownish or colorless vesicant liquids are soluble? causing pulmonary edema, immediate stinging sensation of the skin?
Arsenical Vesicants (L, PD, ED, MD)
Colorless, highly volatile liquids, or colorless gases, are adsorbed into the body primary by breathing, interfering with normal transfer of oxygen
Blood Agents (SA,AC, CK)
Colorless gas or volatile liquid, odor of green corn, new-mow hay, or grass?
Choking agents (CG, DP)
From lack of oxygen, swell, lungs becoming filled with liquid, "dry land drowning"
physiological or mental effects, hours or days after exposure, micro pulverized white solid?
Incapacitating agents (BZ)
how long are the effects of the persistent agent?
delayed 1-4 hours, complete recover occurs 3-4 days
First aid for incapacitating agents?
give fluids sparingly due to vomiting and bladder retention, keep victim cool
what is a key factor in the disappearance of fog oil smoke?
ambient temperature, water vapor, high humidity improves the effectiveness
how long does titanium tetrachloride smoke (FM) last?
approx 10 minutes
FS smoke cause what sensation on the skin?
first aid for WP striking the skin?
smother the flame with water, wet cloth, keep phosphorus covered with wet material to exclude air until particles can be removed
what are the four charactersistics of signaling smokes to determine their value use?
color , visibility, duration, colume
the rate at which a substance vaporizes
what is the level of which the surface boundary layer is measured at?
the terperatre gradiant is determined by?
subtracting the air at 20'' from air at 13'
expedient temperature gradiant is determined how?
subtracting 12'' from 6'
what are the three temperature gradient categories?
lapse, neutral, and inversion
what is a lapse condition?
a decrease in air temperature with increase in height, usually during daylight (1000-1600)
what temperature gradient is always preferred for chemical agent disposal?
what is an inversion condition?
increase in temperature with an increase in height, usually early morning until about 1 hour after sunrise
what is a neutral condition?
no change in temperature, heavily overcast
what is the preferred wind speed for chem disposal?
