Whenever  you  go,  whatever  you  do  -  inside,  on top of a mountain, deep a coal mine - you are always surrounded by a. sea of gases. This sea called the air, or the atmosphere.
The gases of the atmosphere cannot be seen, and we  are  rarely  aware  of  them.  But  they  are  of  the greatest  importance.  Without  the  atmosphere,  people,
animals,  and  plants  could  not  live.  Of  almost  equal
importance is the quality of the atmosphere - whether it is pure or polluted (meaning impure).
The atmosphere is made up mainly of the gases, oxygen  and  nitrogen,  together  with  water  vapour  and smaller amounts of carbon dioxide and other gases. But all  air  contains  small  amounts  of  impurities.  In  rural areas, far removed from the factories and heavy traffic, the  air  may  contain  pollen  from plants,  dust  from the soil, and even bacteria. These impurities are usually in such small amount that they are not important.
Air is said to be polluted when it contains enough harmfu impurities   to   affect   th health safety,   or comfort  of  living  things.  The  impurities  or pollutants, could be tiny particles of matter or gases not normally found in air.

People don't realize that we are surrounded by gases of
the gases of the atmosphere. Why?

Why are the gases of the atmosphere very important?

What is the atmosphere made up?

What may pollute in rural areas?

When is air said to be polluted?
