  • Acid Rain

    Acid Rain

    Acid Rain Acid rain is a rain or other form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, which means that it possesses elevated levels of hydrogen ions (H+) which is the reason for it’s low pH. The chemicals that make acidic rain acidic are sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides, which react with water, oxygen and other chemicals/acidic pollutants in the atmosphere which results in sulfurous acid and nitric or nitrous acids, and thus results in acid rain. This can be shown in the equations: SO2 (g) + H2O (l) > H2SO3 (aq) 2NO2 (g) + H2O
