Due to the insufficiency of data on the area set in this research, the set of countries was taken into account. The third set is the type of pollutant that led to the formation of set P, the set of pollutants {carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, lead, nitrogen oxides, evaporative organic compounds, arsenic, lead and copper in water, …} according to equation number 5. Set M can have m members, set A can include a members and set P can have p members. M = i ∈ N, i ∈ 1, m , m = m (3) A = j ∈ N, j ∈ 1, a , a , = a , (4) P = k ∈ N, k ∈ 1, p , P , , = P,, (5) m is the process i we want to study.

As a consequence of natural air exchange, an increase of NO2 concentrations and decrease of NO concentrations occurred 15 minutes after the completion of combustion. m-3. 4. Mathematical modelling of indoor nitrogen oxides Modelling is a powerful tool that is being used extensively by scientists to investigate air movement and airflow patterns and to evaluate the performance of HVAC systems. Numerous models have been developed to study indoor air quality (IAQ). Although designers, architects, code enforcement officials, and other building scientists have been using modelling as a powerful tool to address indoor IAQ issues, more development is needed to increase the accuracy and the validity of the IAQ models.

The measurements were performed with exhaust ventilation turned both off and on and at different adjustments of air exhaust. e. m-3] 120 100 80 60 40 20 August July June May April March February January December November October September 0 Month Indoor Outdoor Fig. 1. Mean indoor and outdoor NOx concentrations throughout the year exchange rate was about 4 times per hour. 8 µg/m3 for 35 minutes after burning. 3 µg/m3 with forced air replacement. The dynamics of the increase and decrease of NO2 concentrations monitored in the room with natural and forced ventilation is evident from Fig.
