Causes And Effects Of Acid Rain
Acid rain results from chemicals coming from the atmosphere and contains more than the
standard level of sulfuric and nitric acids. Usually, the PH level of water is 5.3 to 6 due to the
presence of carbonic acids; however, when nitric and sulfuric compounds are present in these
water, the PH falls below this range thus rain becomes acidic. Primarily, when nitrogen oxides
and sulfuric oxide reacts with oxygen in the presence of water molecules, chemical compounds
such as nitric acid and sulfuric acid are formed in the rain. Importantly, acid rain has a
detrimental effect both on human and environment since it cause corrosion of building, killing
aquatic organisms and reducing soil activities. Both human-made and natural sources play
significant roles in the production of acidic rains (Berner and Elizabeth, 2013). Significantly, the
formation of acidic rain is caused substantially by the combustion of fossil fuels since it emits
nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide. Therefore, this paper discusses both the natural and human
factors that contribute to the formation of acid rain and the facts of these rain to the ecosystem.

The primary natural causative agent in the formation of acidic rain are emissions from
volcanoes. Volcanoes emit acidic gases which result in the creation of rain or precipitates such
as snow and fog that contain a high level of acid to such an extent that it affects the vegetation

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
