Sulfur Dioxide

0.20 − 0.24 2 Total 30 The above frequency distribution table represents the concentration of sulphur dioxide in the air in parts per million of a certain city for 30 days. Using this table, find the probability of the concentration of sulphur dioxide in the interval 0.12 − 0.16 on any of these days. Answer: Number days for which the concentration of sulphur dioxide was in the interval of 0.12 − 0.16 = 2 Total number of days = 30 Hence, required probability, 13: Blood group ...

Air Pollution Causes One of the main causes of air pollution is the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, this happens because of Deforestation and fossil fuel burning. Sulfur dioxide is another air polluter and is released into the atmosphere by the burning of sulfur containing compounds of fossil fuels. Sulfur oxides are very dangerous to humans at a high concentration. Sulfur in the atmosphere is responsible for acid rain. Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs): also contribute to air...

Air Pollution Prevention in Tehran

ones and yet, the pollution is still there. After the sanctions on imports of refined gasoline, Iran is facing a shortage on fuel and in order to make up for the loss of imports, Iran is now producing low-quality gasoline, which contains Lead, Sulfur Dioxide, and Benzene (Erdbrink, 2013). The government denied that the pollution problem has anything to do with the locally produced gasoline. Instead, blaming the vehicle’s combustion system for the pollution (Davidson, 2013). Tehran has reached...

7 ways to reduce air pollution

Pollution Step 1: Understand Where Air Pollution Comes From According to the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are six major causes of air pollution in the United States. These are ground-level ozone, particulate matter, lead, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide. While most people have heard of carbon monoxide, lead and particulate matter, they might be surprised to learn that the primary source of air pollution today is ground-level ozone. Unlike the natural ozone...

Implications of the Environmental Issues

diseases that are spread by mosquitoes. Acid Rain goes hand in hand with global warming. Acid rain is a great problem in our world. It causes fish and plants to die in our waters. Acid rain is a common term for pollution caused when sulfur and nitrogen dioxides combine with atmospheric moisture to produce a rain, snow, or hail of sulfuric and nitric acids. Such pollution may also be suspended in a fog, or the pollutants may be deposited in dry form. It causes harm to our own race as well because...

Automobile Air Pollution

of incomplete combustion, particulate matter (soot, ash, and other solids), unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, various nitrogen oxides, ozone, and lead, undergo a series of chemical reactions in the presence of sunlight. The result is the dense haze characteristic of smog. "Smog may appear brownish in color when it contains high concentrations of nitrogen dioxide, or it may look blue-gray when it contains large amounts of ozone" (Danger). The cumulative effect of air pollution...

affects the world climate. Environmental issues have made a huge impact on Norway. Acid rain is one of the most serious environmental problems that Norway faces. Acid rain is caused by Sulfur Dioxide emissions. The Sulfur Dioxide emissions have decreased incredibly since the 1970’s, because of the UNECE Sulfur Protocols. But this has not stopped the horrible after-effects that the acid rain had caused. Much of the lands soil and surface water is extremely susceptible to acidification. This created...

Causes of animal extinction

after hurricanes, when lizards and insects are washed across small stretches of water to foreign environments. Sometimes, the environment cannot keep up with the new species, and degradation can occur. Acid rain is also normally occurs when sulphur dioxide from coal plant emission combines with moisture present in the air. A chemical reaction creates the acid rain. Acid rain can be acidity and pollute lakes and streams. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), if enough acid rain...
