What is Air Pollution?

When gaes, fumes, dust or odour in harmful amounts is releaed into our atosphere, air pollution occurs. Amounts, being harmful to our environment, animals, materials and humans can have a huge impact on all of us, change our way of life and can risk the hopes, all of uss have for the future.

Substances that are used to pollute our air are called pollutants. They are pumped into the air and pollute the air directly. Primary pollutant examples are, car exhaustion and coal sombustion. These pollutants are called, carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide.

Further pollution can arise if primary pollutants undergo chemical reactions and are called secondary pollutants and an example of this is photochemial smog.
