This experiment does an observation on the influence that warm temperature in degree Celsius has on ai quality index for the city of Tucson, Arizona, USA Vs. Luoyang, Henin, China for the course of twenty-one days. The problem tackled was distinguishing how temperature influences air quality index for distinct cities. This mentioned, there’s a lack of interest towards this topic since the general influence of warm temperature is usually directed towards the glanced and perceived look of an environment rather than a precise measurement of air quality index. The research question was tackled by reporting the data of the warm temperature in degree Celsius and air quality index for Tucson and Luoyang throughout the course of twenty-one days, and ultimately, the data was reported on Excel graphs; with the provided information of the graphs, Tucson is less negatively impacted by warm temperature than Luoyang, since Tucson’s r^2 value as Luoyang has one of 0.0276 with a difference of 0.0487 between the two cities, Tucson held an average temperature of 13 degree Celsius and Luoyang did of 10 and so, there is a direct relationship between AQI and temperature: as one increases, the other does, as well. The research follows up to the main idea that society needs to advocate for the wellness of Earth before it reaches hazardous extremes like it slowly has in Luoyang. Similarly, the key impact of our research is the significance and awareness it brings to the eventual state of Earth if no precautions are taken.
