Acid Rain
Acid Rain
Acid rain is a rain or any other form of rain or snow that is unusually acidic, meaning that it contains rain
with low potential of hydrogen (pH). It can cause harmful effects on plants, aquatic animals and infrastructure.
Acid rain is caused by the emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxide (NO), which react with the
water molecules in the atmosphere to produce acids.
Acid rain generally occurs in a big and crowded city, which have industrial areas and a lot of cars.
Combustion of fuels produces sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitric oxide (NO), then they are converted into sulfuric
acid and nitric acid trough some chemical prosesses. When the 2 solutions oxidize and form clouds, the aqueous
from drop in the form of acid cloud droplets. This phenomena is called acid rain.
Acid rain can cause a higher alumunium concentration in the surface water, which leads to the death of the
fish and making it more difficult to survive. The soil can also turned to be infertile and affecting sensitive
species. Buiding and statues whose made of rocks can get corrotion, However acid rain does not directly affect
human's health.
Although it is not really affect human's health, government still consider the nature and made some
regulations. Some of the regulations are vehicle emissions control and the installation of pollution control
equipment.
