Question description

Acid rain is an environmental problem that is of great concern due to its possible effect on the health of humans and the environment. 

Acid rain is defined as any form of wet precipitation—rain, snow, fog, dew, or sleet—that has a pH less than 5.6.  Large quantities can also be deposited in a dry form through dust.  Acid rain is more acidic than normal rainwater and forms through a complex process of chemical reactions involving air pollution and water molecules in the air.

Compose a main post that briefly explains the pH scale.  What is the pH of natural rainwater and why? 

  • Discuss the causes of acid rain and some of the main chemicals in air pollution that create acid rain.

Discuss some of the environmental effects and health effects associated with acid rain, as well as some ways in which acid rain can be reduced.
