The air we breathe!

  • Troposphere is the lowest level of the atmosphere, followed by the Thermosphere
  • Good up High (Ozone is a protective gas in the Stratosphere)
  • Bad Nearby (Pollutant in the Troposphere)
  • Incomplete combustion results in the  formation of Carbon Monoxide (CO)
  • Catalytic converters catalyze the conversion of CO to C02 (reduces CO and also reduce VOC)
  • Sulfur trioxide (SO3) forms corrosive sulfuric acid (H2S04) with water
  • Sulfur dioxide reacts on the surface of a variety of airborne solid particles (aerosols), is soluble in water and can be oxidized within airborne water droplets, producing sulphuric acid.– (Ash hastens the formation of sulfur trioxide)
