ACID RAIN

Causes of Acid Rain
    The SO2 and NOX react with water, oxygen and other chemicals to form sulfuric and nitric acids.These then mix with water and other materials before falling to the ground.

Effect of Acid Rain
  • Burning of fossil fuels to generate electricity.
  • Vehicles and heavy equipment.
  • Manufacturing, oil refineries and other industries.
Cure of Acid Rain
    Use of alternative sources of energy, decreasing energy consumption and using alternative forms of transport. Acid rain results from the deposition of nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide in the atmosphere, which occurs when fossil fuels are burned.
