Q5. Name and differentiate the two types of air pollution. The two types of air pollution are 1. Gaseous pollution 2. Particulate pollution Gaseous pollution: is that type of air pollution caused as a result of harmful gases such as sulphur di oxide, carbon monoxide being emitted into the atmospheric air from different sources. Particulate pollution: is air pollution caused due to the addition of minute particles into the atmospheric air as a result of vehicular combustion, mining, drilling etc. Q6. Name the different sources of air pollution. The different sources of air pollution are:1. Vehicles/automobiles: smoke emitted from vehicles produce particles of soot and hydrocarbons as well as harmful gases such as carbon monoxide, carbon di oxide, sulphur di oxide etc. Speeding vehicles also raise dust particles.
