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.
"Acid rain" is a popular term referring to the deposition of wet (rain, snow, sleet, fog and cloudwater, dew) and dry (acidifying particles and gases) acidic components.
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
