Air Pollution Experiments for Junior and Senior High School Science Classes, Second Edition.
Hunter, Donald C., Ed.; Wohlers, Henry C., Ed.
This revised and expanded version of a similar manual first published in 1969 is designed to acquaint students at both junior and senior levels with some of the problems and effects of air pollution and the practical means of overcoming them. The 38 experiments comprise a group of exercises which can be selected according to the interests of the student and are designed to utilize equipment and instruments available in most high schools. Exercises deal with effects of air pollution on materials and plants, evaluation and measurement of pollutants, and methods of abatement. Since abatement of air pollution has often resulted in another waste disposal problem, the final sections include experiments indicating how some waste products can be put to good use. Each experiment has several components: (1) objectives, (2) suitability and usefulness, (3) theory or background information, (4) equipment and supplies required, (5) procedures to follow, (6) records to compile or evaluations to make, (7) references, and (8) author of the experiment.
