The 3 components are source of exposure, pathway of the chemical, and receptor.
Questions to ask when dealing with chemical source is the material itself, how it’s used, how much is used, how often the chemical is used, temperature, vapor pressure, physical processes.
For example, airborne magnesium, chloride, phosphorus, and ammonia can be generated by droughts.
