Percentage of nitrogen in air is 78.09% by volume of Earth’s atmosphere.
Percentage of oxygen in atmosphere is 21%
In photochemical smog, a secondary pollutant is present which is thermally unstable. It is a lachrymatory substance. Name it. Peroxyacetyl Nitrate
Tear gas known as lachrymatory agent that stimulates the corneal nerves in the eyes to cause tears, pain and even blindness.
A component of a tear gas is CS gas. It is used as Riot Control Agent
Certain man-made chemicals are ozone-depletion. The parental hydrocarbons of these chemicals are ethane and methane. These chemicals are Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)
Global warming refers to the average increase in the Earth’s temperature due to rise in pollution. Greenhouse gases accumulate into the atmosphere and trap heat. Name a green house gas. Carbon Dioxide
Ozone in the ozone layer filters out UV-rays. Ozone layer is . present in stratosphere. UV-rays causes skin cancer. Range of wavelength of UV-rays ranges between 200 nm-315 nm
Carbon monoxide (CO) is the major harmful gas emitted by automobile vehicles. It reduces the blood’s ability of carry oxygen and its over-exposure may be fatal. CO along with aldehydes is responsible for which phenomenon? Photochemical Smog
