Main Question or Discussion Point
I got this generic china pollution monitor. When I turned it on. PM2.5 reads 49 ug/m^3 and PM10 reads 86 ug/m^3. It has vents at the back to measure the background levels. I don't know if my air levels is that high. I can't go to the mountains to test if it will read below 10 ug/m^3.
Anyway. Are PM2.5 (particulates 2.5 microns or below) or PM10 (particulates 10 microns or below) present in every cubic of air like it diffuses into the air for a specific neighborhood?
If you are exposed to PM2.5 OF SAY 49 ug/m^3, does it mean you breathe in all the particulates?
And lastly. Do you have any idea how to create a box where the particulates are suctioned out so the reading can be below 10 ug/m^3? I want to test if the unit can display a lower reading of PM2.5 and PM10. I can't ask the manufacturer since it's generic china unit. Thanks.
