5 True/False questions
thermal inversion → The bounsry along which a mass of warmer, moister air replaces a mass of colder, drier air.
relative humidity → the ratio of water vapor a given volume of air contains at a given temperature
scrubbers → Technology to chemically treat gas produced in combustion to remove hazardous components and neutralize acidic gases, turning them into water and aslt, in order to reduce smokestack emissions
Sulfur dioxide → a highly reactive, foul smelling reddish brown gas that contributes to smog and acid precipitation.
Weather → atmospheric conditions over short time periods, typically hours or days, and within relatively small gergraphic areas
