Secondary pollutants are caused due to mixing of primary pollutants. Sources of pollution are human, plants, animals, power, cars, burning stuffs, natural dust, sulphur, chlorine and ash particles, volcanic activity. Dust, storm and smog are causing huge health hazard in the lives of UAE population. All these harmful em... ... middle of paper ... ...my understanding of the causes of air pollution I will be able to bring awareness not only in my group but also people living around me. According to me, immediate measures to curb air pollution will definitely bring down the level to some extent.
So they were burning lots of fossil fuels that is a major cause of pollution. While burning fossil fuels, there are dangerous pollutants coming out such as carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen, hydrocarbons and particulates. Especially, carbon dioxide is very harmful chemical to effect on environment because it contributes acid rain and change the climate that effects to the environment. The emission of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere occurs while fossil fuel is burning. If there is lots of carbon dioxide released from fossil fuel then acid rain would occur more.
When we use these types of fuel, they produce not only smoke, but they also put by-products into the atmosphere. The cumulative effect of air pollution poses a grave threat to humans and the environment. “Chemical reactions involving air pollutants can create acidic compounds which can cause harm to vegetation and buildings. Sometimes, when an air pollutant, such as sulfuric acid combines with the water droplets that make up clouds, the water droplets become acidic, forming acid rain.” (Today, 2010) When acid rain falls is bad for trees, and can harm animals and other
Another type of smog is created from dirt particles in smoke from the chimneys of factories and houses (Stille 22). These dirt particles cling to drops of water in the air, which can make eyes water, noses itch, and throats scratchy and sore. People within these cities that deal with this murky haze are much more likely to experience discomfort and develop lung problems due to breathing in too much polluted air (Asimov 15). Acid rain, another effect of air pollution, is formed when sulfur-rich fuels such as coal and oil are burned and combined with water. This rain is harmful to our environment because sulfur creates an acid that kills fish, trees, plants, and crops.
Air pollution is one cause of people developing Asthma by increasing the particulates in the air we breath such as nitrogen dioxide we increase the chance of developing asthma and other diseases. The types of Pollution that i want to see more done about are Air pollution, Water pollution, Soil pollution, and Personal Pollution. There are many different types of Air pollution they each have a different effect on the world aand its inhabitants. Carbon dioxide is the main pollutant on earth the reason for that is that is because every thing emits carbon dioxide. Humans produce it when they breath, and cars along with other industrial companys produce it in the form of exhaust when fossil fuels are burned.
Although air quality degradation because of air pollution is a global problem that threatens humanity’s wellbeing overall, it is largely associated with environmental bias. (Anastasia Dimitriou and Vasilia Christidou, 2011) Air pollutants rise from both manufactured and natural processes. Pollutants are also defined as primary pollutants resulting from fire of fuels and manufacturing processes and secondary pollutants, those which are produced due to response of primary pollutants in the atmosphere. The ambient air quality may be defined by the attention of a set of pollutants which may be present in the ambient air we breathe in. These pollutants may be called principles pollutants.
Not only does pollution have an affect on society, but it also takes a huge toll on our environment. With there being different types of pollution, “air pollution is by far the most harmful form of pollution in our environment. Air pollution is caused by injurious smoke emitted by cars, buses, trucks, trains, and factories” (UCCEE). Air pollution is
Air pollution science 2/13/2017 Mahek Nanji Air pollution is the presence of harmful or poisonous substance into the air causing serious side effects. There are two types of pollutants; primary pollutants and secondary pollutants. Primary pollutants are gases or particles which are introduced into the air to make it polluted. Example is carbon monoxide from car exhaust fumes and sulphur dioxide from burning of coal. Secondary pollutants are when chemicals in the air mix to form a more dangerous chemical.
For those who fear "the end of the world," acid rain may pose a threat as it creates a bad environment for both animal and human. And for those who care about our planet, maybe it is about time we stop destroying it and give something back to Mother Earth. There are numerous causes of acid precipitation, several of these are insignificant and accumulate into severe cases. However, there are also some sources that are menacing by itself, sources such as industrial emissions. In some cases, acid rain is caused when industrial fumes mix with moisture in the atmosphere.
Acid Rain, Ozone Depletion, Smog, and Global Warming are all the result of air pollution. This could possibly be the single most devastating factor in the dissipation of our Eco-system, as we know it. Acid Rain is a term that consists of acid rain, snow, fog, and particles. It is caused by sulfur dioxides and nitrogen oxides released by power plants vehicles and other sources such as gasses, and oils. (EPA Acid Rain) Acid rain effects trees, soil, farms, and surface waters.
