PM stands for Particulate Matter while 2.5 refers to the size of the particles (2.5 microns or lesser) - 30 times smaller than the width of a human hair. Its tiny size makes it even harder to prevent PM2.5 from getting into the body, making it extremely deadly. It enters the car when windows are rolled down and worsens asthma & heart conditions while causing runny nose, sneezing and coughing.
PM stands for Particulate Matter while 10 refers to the size of the particles (10 microns or lesser) - much less than the width of a single human hair. It enters the car when windows are rolled down and can cause serious health problems by getting into the lungs.
