A simplified approximation for a one-dimensional multi-cell was developed along with a photochemical mechanism proposed in the literature [11] .. This approximation is used to represent an urban area divided into five cells, 6 Km wide and 30 Km long, with a mixing layer at a variable altitude. Each of the simulated chemical species is represented by a differential equation, which accounts for advective flows, volume expansion, chemical kinetics and total emissions. Some of the initial values for the parameters, such as meteorological, altitude of the mixing layer depth and those
