5 True/False questions
Tropospheric ozone → A secondary pollutant, a major component of smog, colorless gas
nitrogen dioxide → a highly reactive, foul smelling reddish brown gas that contributes to smog and acid precipitation.
Sulfur dioxide → a highly reactive, foul smelling reddish brown gas that contributes to smog and acid precipitation.
industrial smog → When coal or oil is burned, some portion is completly combusted, forming CO2
