Think of air quality index as a weighing machine. If you weigh more than 30, you're not at the 'healthy' level. Just imagine weighing 60x more! We're at a 600+ level of AQI in Delhi right now - which means that each of us will get impacted. The impact can be low or extremely high, depending on your immunity, where you live and how you tackle indoor pollution.
According to research, when analyzing air pollutants manually, both spectrometry (absorption spectrophAotometry, atomic absorption spectrometry, and ICP emission method), which is widely used, and chromatography (gas chromatography and liquid chromatography) is used as well.
An AQI monitor will assess the air around you based on factors such as the ones mentioned below.
EPA establishes an AQI for five major air pollutants regulated by the Clean Air Act. Each of these pollutants has a national air quality standard set by EPA to protect public health:
particle pollution (also known as particulate matter, including PM2.5 and PM10)
