Unformatted text preview: Engineering Design Part 1 Air Pollution: I chose this problem because I find it very interesting, and also it is one of
the biggest and essential problems nowadays. Air pollution is what makes
global warming, which puts in danger our planet and essentially our lives.
Therefore, it is very important to find a solution to resolve the problem of
air pollution, in order to prevent further global warming expansion. Part 1 Source:
In the article, they bring up a few solutions for reducing air pollution. The
major solution is to reduce home air pollution by increasing ventilation, using
radon gas instead natural gas, using air purifiers, running kitchen and
bathroom exhaust fans, and also trying to avoid smoking. Thanks to this
article, I learned that approximately 3 billion people are under health threat
because of such indoor smoke which comes from cooking and/or heating of a
house. Source Cited:

In the article, there are listed some useful criteria of air pollutants.
One of the major criteria is carbon monoxide which comes from
automobile emissions, fires, and industrial processes, and it
contributes to the formation of smog. Also, carbon monoxide may
cause symptoms of heart disease or even vision problems. From
reading this article, I found out that ozone is also a gaseous pollutant. Source Cited:

The article gives a few ways of how to reduce air pollution. One of
these ways is to buy food in a local place, thus cutting down on the
fossil fuels burned in trucking or flying food in from across the
country. Thanks to the article, I learned that smog, an air pollutant,
can irritate the eyes and throat, and damage the lungs. Source Cited:

The article lists several solutions for reducing air pollution. One of them is
to produce clean energy and reduce consumption of energy. Thanks to the
article I reviewed, I was again reminded that air pollution has a huge
impact on the process of plant evolution by preventing photosynthesis. Source Cited:
