The article focuses on the concepts of air pollution dispersion. It notes that a simply constructed and artificial smokestack demonstrates the dispersion of toxic air pollutants. The combination of a physical model with a computational model strengthens the conceptual and quantitative understanding of chemical dispersion in air. Atmospheric conditions are considered fundamental to air dispersion and can be determined through visual observations. Moreover, stack simulator can be useful for students to fully comprehend the relevance of the basic Gaussian plume equation.
