This report basically discusses the study conducted and the basic understanding in ambient air quality monitoring of particulate matter. Particulate matter (PM) was measured in two different locations; residential area and industrial area in Ipoh, Perak. Three set of sampling were collected during working days and weekend using a device called MicroVol-1100. In addition, the samplings are conducted on a threehour basis. The particulate matter concentrations were found in the range of 41 J.Lg/m3 and 91 J.Lg/m3 • The particulate matter concentrations were all below the guidelines which are provided by Department of Environment, Malaysia (DOE). Furthermore, this study includes the effects of particulate matter in relation health and environment. In terms of health, exposure to particulate matter regardless short or long period can cause respiratory and cardiovascular illness and even death.
