Build a Portable PM2.5 Particles Monitor
Microscopic particles of solid or liquid matter suspended in the air impact human health through climate changes and direct inhalation. Also known as particulate matter (PM) the fine dust particles are commonly classified by size. PM10 designates particles with a diameter from 2.5 to 10 μm; PM2.5 is the category of fine particles with a diameter of 2.5 μm or less. PM2.5 pollution is considered particularly deadly as it can cause lung cancer. Did we scare you? Then this project is for you.
