This paper is aimed at measuring black carbon density from TATA and PERKINS diesel engine generators, and also, seeing the potential consequence of over exposure to black carbon and exhaust gases with the possible ways of reducing these emissions. The objective of the study is to highlight the negative effects of black carbon and suggest possible ways of reducing those effects on both climate change and public health. The following are methods employed to achieve the aims and objectives of the project: a) Consulting and reviewing literature. b) Use of available data obtained from research. c) Use of mathematical postulation and scientific discoveries. For this research: a) Measurement is based on analytical calculation. b) Analysis is based on data obtained from research and experiments. c) Measurement and analysis here is limited to only TATA and PERKINS generators with diesel as fuel. The result of the analysis shows that the mass of black carbon (soot) emitted by TATA generator is 36.0419g and the volume is 8.750cm3 making it’s density to be 0.00411kg/m3. For PERKINS however, the mass of soot is 27.4098g, the volume is 8.750cm3 and its density is 0.00313kg/m3.
