These symbols, established by international agreement, are used throughout the world. Some of the symbols are quite obvious to those who speak English. For example, oxygen is O, nitrogen is N, carbon is C, and sulfur is S. Most symbols, however, consist of two letters: Ni for nickel, Cl for chlorine, Ca for calcium, and so on. Other symbols appear to have little relationship to their English names. Thus, Fe is iron, Pb is lead, Au is gold, Ag is silver, Sn is tin, Cu is copper, and Hg is mercury.

Select a year, a locale, and generate the report. How does the air quality in the city you selected compare with Houston? The Online Learning Center has stepwise directions to help you obtain the data. Air quality may also be listed by individual pollutant. 6 shows the air quality forecast for carbon monoxide, ozone, and particulates on a hot summer day in Phoenix, AZ. Although the color coding is not employed, the criteria are the same. 6 shows that the Arizona Republic uses numerical values in its air quality forecasts.

An alternative way to represent the composition of air is in terms of the molecules and atoms present in the mixture. This works because equal volumes of gases contain equal numbers of molecules, providing the gases are at the same temperature and pressure. Thus, if you took a sample of 100 of the molecules and atoms in air (an unrealistically small amount of air), 78 would be nitrogen molecules, 21 would be oxygen molecules, and 1 would be an argon atom. In other words, when we say that air is 21% oxygen, we mean that there are 21 molecules of oxygen per 100 molecules and atoms in the air.
