Draw a neat, labelled diagram of nitrogen cycle in nature. Which natural phenomenon occurring in the sky is responsible for nitrogen fixation?
A neat, labelled diagram of the nitrogen cycle in nature is shown below:
Lightning is a natural phenomenon which occurs in the sky and responsible for nitrogen fixation. The temperature and pressure during lightning convert atmospheric nitrogen into oxides of nitrogen. These nitrogen compounds combine with rain water to form nitric and nitrous acid which mix with the soil. These acids are utilized by various organisms.
