“An oxidizing reaction converts carbon monoxide (CO) and unburned hydrocarbons (HC), and a reduction reaction converts oxides of nitrogen (NOx) to produce carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen (N2), and water (H2O)”
What is the net effect that catalytic converters have on the danger of inhaling car exhaust fumes?
I assume you can still die if you lock yourself in a garage with your post-1974 car running.
So, what about the statement above?
Does the CC simply REDUCE the amount of CO, but there is still a lethal amount that comes out?
Or does the CC eliminate all CO emissions making the whole car garage suicide a thing of the pre-1974 past?
