5 True/False questions
acid rain → rain containing high amounts of chemical pollutants
asbestos asbestosis → smog resulting from emissions from industry and other sources of gases produced by the burning of fossil fuels.
catalytic converter → air is sucked into a cyclone that has metal sheet that remove large pollutants and then the air is pushed back out while the large pollutants are cleaned out
particulate matter → a small discrete mass of solid or liquid matter that remains individually dispersed in gas or liquid emissions (usually considered to be an atmospheric pollutant)
carbon monoxide → (CO) Sources include incomplete combustion of fossil fuels. Effects: binds to hemoglobin reducing bloods ability to carry O2. Reduction accomplished by catalytic converters, oxygenated fuel, mass transit (reduction).
