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


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.
