"Acid rain" is a broad term referring properties of water to a mixture of wet and dry deposition (deposited material) from the atmosphere containing higher than normal amounts of nitric and sulfuric acids. The precursors, or chemical forerunners, of acid rain formation result from both natural. sources, such as volcanoes and decaying vegetation, and man-made sources, primarily emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO 2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) resulting from fossil fuel combustion. In the United States, roughly 2/3 of all SO 2 and. 1/4 of all NOx come from electric power generation that relies on burning fossil fuels, like coal. Acid rain occurs when these gases react in the atmosphere with water, oxygen, and other chemicals to form various acidic compounds. The result is a mild. solution of sulfuric acid and nitric properties of water acid. When sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are released from power plants and other sources, prevailing winds blow these compounds across state and national borders, sometimes properties of water over hundreds of miles, acid rain caused by the deposition of substances and dry. Wet Of atmospheric nitric acid and sulfuric acid. A higher than normal volume Substrate or the chemical reaction from the acid rain. Result from natural sources such as volcanoes and decaying vegetation or man-made. Most of the emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. Caused by the burning of fossil fuel. In the United properties of water States, about two thirds of sulfur dioxide and 1/4 of the total nitrogen oxides. Of electric power That relies on burning fossil fuels like coal, acid rain occurs when these gases react with water and other chemicals in the atmosphere. Causing acid Sulfuric acid and nitric acid. When sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides emitted from power plants and other sources to get the oxygen may be wind swept over hundreds of kilometers.
