Question

Explain circumstances leading to acid rain. How does acid rain affect us?

Solution

Burning of fossil fuels such as coal and diesel releases a variety of pollutants such as sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere. These pollutants react with water vapours present in the atmosphere to form sulphuric acid and nitric acid respectively. These acids come down with the rain, thereby resulting in acid rain.

Effects of acid rain:

1) Acid rains damage crops.

2) Acid rains corrode buildings and structures especially those made of marble such as Taj Mahal
