    Formation of acid rain Formation of acid rain Presentation Transcript

    • Formation of acid rain
    • Acid rain It is a rain or any other form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that it possesses elevated levels of hydrogen ions (low pH). It can have harmful effects on plants, aquatic animals and infrastructure.
    • Formula for an acid rain       acid rain is caused by emissions Sulfur dioxide Nitrogen oxide Which can be the cause of volcanic eruption lightning
    • pH level of acid rain This shows the pH level of the acid rain
    • Chemical structure of acid rain     carbon dioxide and water in the air react together to form carbonic acid, a weak acid according to the following reaction: H2O(l) + CO2 (g) H2CO3 (aq) Carbonic acid then can ionize in water forming low concentrations of hydronium and carbonate ions: H2O(l) + H2CO3 (aq) HCO3− (aq) + H3O+ (aq)
    • Results of acid rain Acid rain can destroy the leaves in a forest
    • Acid rain can also destroy buildings and other materials.
    • How does acid rain affects aquatic organisms Acid rain can also harm the habitats of aquatic organisms
    • Cycle of acid rain
