What is colloid? What is aerosol? How do they pollute air?

Pollution of air due to colloid and aerosol
- Colloids and aerosols are released into the air through natural or human-made sources
- They contribute to air pollution and can have harmful effects on human health
- The small size of the particles allows them to enter the lungs and bloodstream, causing respiratory problems and worsening existing health conditions.
