Types of Pollution
There are various types of pollution that cause us to change the face of our earth. Therefore quality living changes and new issues have arisen that gradually impact our health and our environment. In these articles of learning chemistry, we discuss important types of pollution that affect our health or environment.
Air, Water and Industrial pollution
Air polluted by poisonous gases like CO, NO, NO2, SO3, O3, etc, and unburnt hydrocarbon, chemical elements, etc. Therefore, air contains harmful gases, dust, smoke, etc causes for air pollution. When insoluble solid particles, soluble salts, sewage, garbage, and low-level radioactive substances, industrial wastages, algae, bacteria, etc go into the water, water gets polluted, These types of pollution are called water pollution.
The wastage discharges by industries make water, air, and biosphere polluted. The industrial wastage contains chemical elements like Hg, Na, Cd, As, Pb, Ca, etc and organic compounds like acid, alkaline, alcohol, etc. Therefore, these wastages threw into lakes and rivers, and the water of lakes and rivers polluted. Carbon dioxide from industrial burning causes global warming. While sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide causes sulfuric acid and nitric acid rain. Nuclear power plants also emitted harmful rays like alpha, beta and gamma rays to our earth atmosphere impact our health.
