We know that smog is bad to breath, but we wondered if it also blocked sunlight. When there were videos on the news about smog, you could see that it was darker than usual. We wanted to investigate this further. We wanted to know if smog blocked sunlight, but also how much it would block. In the future, this data could be used. If the sunlight would be measured when there is smog in the air, they will know how much smog there is in the air, and they could warn people if there is too much smog in the air to breath normally. So, our research is about the amount of sunlight that is being blocked by a certain amount of smog in the atmosphere. This experiment would give us the opportunity to use chemistry and physics: make smog and work with sensors.
