Acid rain is known to contain some

Question:

Acid rain is known to contain some acids. Name these acids and where from they come in the rain?

Solution:

Acid rain is the result of human activities that emit the oxides of sulphur and nitrogen in the atmosphere.

2SO2 (g) + O2 (g) + 2H2O (l) → 2H2SO4 (aq)

4NO2 (g) + O2 (g)+ 2H2O (l) → 4HNO3 (aq) .

Nitric acid and sulphuric acid are acids present in acid rain which causes harmful effects to both living and non-living things.
