Air pollution happens when gases, smoke and dust occur in the atmosphere making it dangerous and hazardous to all living species. The atmosphere serves the earth with protection. Without the atmosphere, it would be impossible to live. Pollutants are the matters that cause air pollution; there are two types of pollutants, primary and secondary pollutants. Primary pollutants are particles that are pumped into the air making it filthy and unclean. In the other hand, secondary pollutants are when pollutants get mixed up in a chemical reaction in the air. Forming a more hazardous chemical. An example of a secondary pollutant is a photochemical smog. Air pollution mainly happens when gases unload from industry and vehicles.

Fossil fuel combustion of the most polluted air may receive and the outdoor example such as Mining operations ,industry activity ,Landfill and Military activities Emitted from all this activity poisonous gas such as carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide (CO2), volatile organic compounds (VOC) particulate matter (PM), chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) ammonia (NH3) and radioactive contaminants. (1) pollutants can be classified into primary and secondary pollutants. Typically, what are the primary pollutants are substances that are issued directly from one of the processes, such as scattered ash from a volcanic eruption or the first gas carbon dioxide emitted from car exhaust or carbon dioxide emitted from factory chimneys. The secondary pollutants are not emitted directly into the air, but this is made up pollutants in the air when active primary pollutants or interact with each other such as Ozone closer to the Earth 's surface.
The burning of coal and fossil fuels is causing the emission of gases more than what caused natural gas Coal released gases such as nitrogen oxides, sulfur, lead, hydrogen

When sulfuric acid combines with the water droplets this makes up clouds, the water droplets become acidic. When acid rain falls over an area, it can kill trees and harm Animals, marine creatures, and other wildlife. While this rain falls it goes through roots which makes the soil loses its nutrition. In result this acid rain affects the chemistry of streams and lakes where the rainwater flows to harming aquatics life. In addition, industries are one of the biggest sources of air pollution.

How air pollution effects human:

For those people how lives in big cities maybe more at risk from air pollution. However, people living in big cities may be more at risk because of their population, which makes them use cars more than small cities. Air pollution affects us in simple ways or in serious problems. Moreover, The quality of the Air we breathe affects the quality of our health as a result. As known to many people air effects the respiratory system, heart disease and lung cancer. It also makes breathing difficult and bring cough too. While inhaling the contaminated air it affects the respiratory system especially because its sensitive while it 's made up of mucous membranes covering the internal
