    Chemical cycles maintain the number of components on the earth in an exact equilibrium. Carbon is an important component that can be cycled from inorganic to organic. It is available in nature as inorganic and living and dead organisms as numerous organic courses. The cyclic modification is retained between in­organic and organic shapes. Plants can not survive without carbon dioxide. They consume it through the air. In the process of photosynthesis, the procedure of making food needs water, sunlight and carbon dioxide. So at the same time, we all are aware that any living being can not survive without plants. So it is important to us as well. Animals and living organisms consume carbon by eating those plants or plants related things. And they exhale it through their breathing and inhale oxygen which is made by the plants in the process of photosynthesis. There are also several ways of producing carbon, Volcanic eruptions are an origin of carbon. During the eruption, it delivers enormous quantities of carbon dioxide. The living organism on earth gives two types of important ways in carbon cycles – organic and non-organic.
    Organic cycle:- In the organic cycle Plants consume CO2 from the environment to use during photosynthesis. Then, the other organism has it in their body through it early and then releases it during their process of breathing.
    Non- organic cycle:- in this cycle carbon is found in many non-living materials on the earth. A huge amount of the carbon on the Earth is stocked in rocks. The Earth’s oceans carry a vast quantity of CO2 as it effortlessly melts in water. Besides, coal, oil, and limestone reserve carbon that once set old organisms. Also, flaming fossil fuels will release CO2 into the environment, like coal, oil etc.
    These natural procedures were in exact balance. But human actions can unsettle the cycle and boost the percentage of carbon dioxide in the environment, which is very problematic. This could result in crises in the future as carbon dioxide is essential for regulating the world’s temperature.
