milligrams) per frozen meal appeared in the article “Comparison of ‘Light’
Frozen Meals” (Boston Globe, April 24, 1991):
720 530 800 690 880 1050 340 810 760
300 400 680 780 390 950 520 500 630

by vehicle engines. Their concentration is monitored in large cities. This
experiment attempts to tell whether concentrations measured at face level are

for a day at a particular location, with the results shown in units of parts per
5
billion by volume (i.e., mole ratio).
