Chemical Composition of Acid Rain?


The chemical composition of acid rain is carbonic acid, nitric acid and sulfuric acid. The chemical composition can vary based on the location of the rain and the pollution in the area. The main two gases that cause acid rain are sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide.
Q&A Related to "Chemical Composition of Acid Rain?"
Although rain is slightly acidic naturally from carbon dioxide exposure, acid rain (the very low pH rain) is associated with sulphur and nitrogen oxides dissolving in the rain.
From the SO2 and NOx poured into the atmosphere from various sources, we get, however dilute, solutions of nitric/ous and sulfuric/ous acids. Also with natural CO2 in the air, the
While distilled water has a pH of 7.0, rainwater registers a pH of about 5.6 due to carbonic acid, a result of carbon dioxide dissolving in water. At this low level of acidity, rainwater
Phosphoric acid is often compared to battery acid. It's a highly
