What are the origins and environmental implications of pollutants in car exhaust gases?
By Oscar Miles
Chemical Equation: O2 + 2 C → 2 CO
Chemical Equation: 2O2 + 2 C → 2 C2O
Origin: combustion of nitrogen in air.
N2 + O2→ 2NO2NO + O2→2NO2
- Forms when sulphur combusts in air
S + O2→SO2
2SO2 + O2→2SO3
