    The Effects of Acid Rain. Acid rain causes a lot of damage in some environments. If the pH in the water or soil becomes too low, it can kill fish and plants. Entire forests have died due to acid rain. Acid rain is measured using a scale called “pH.” The lower a substance’s pH, the more acidic it is. Pure water has a pH of However, normal rain is slightly acidic because carbon dioxide (CO 2) dissolves into it forming weak carbonic acid, giving the resulting mixture a pH of approximately at typical atmospheric concentrations of CO 2.

    Electricity generation accounts for the lion's share of air pollutants that spawn acid rain. Every year, the nation's fossil fuel power plants spew roughly 70 percent of SO2 emissions and 30 percent of NOx emissions that are critical ingredients in making acid rain. It can be wet precipitation (rain, snow, or fog) or dry precipitation (absorbed gaseous and particulate matter, aerosol particles or dust). Acid rain has a pH below Normal rain has a pH of about , which is slightly acidic. The term pH is a measure of acidity or alkalinity and ranges from 0 to A pH measurement of 7 is regarded as.

    Urbanization, Energy, and Air Pollution in China: The Challenges Ahead: Proceedings of a Symposium () Chapter: Programs to Control Air Pollution and Acid Rain--SARATH K. GUTTIKUNDA, TODD M. JOHNSON, FENG LIU, and JITENDRA J. SHAH. ACId rAIN forms when sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides mix with water vapor in the air. Because wind moves the air, acid rain can fall hundreds of miles from its source. Acid rain can make lakes so acidic that plants and animals can't live in the water. Forests can be harmed when nutrients are drained out of the soil by acid rain, and trees can't.

Published by ACEEE and The Energy Conservation Coalition, this study documents ways in which electricity conservation can save consumers and utilities billions of dollars, while reducing electricity consumption in the ECAR region, a major acid-rain emitting.

Acid rain and photochemical smogs are also a hazard to both health and the environment. In order to combat these, a range of cleaner renewable energy technologies has been developed.

However, renewable power generation has its own impact on the environment. Acid Rain Rain that has become acidic by contact with air pollution. Other forms of precipitation, such as snow and fog, are also often included in the term acid rain or acid wet deposition.

Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) A naturally occurring gas made of sulfur and oxygen that is also released when fossil fuels are burned. Introduction. CHAPTER ACID RAIN Acid rain was discovered in the 19th century by Robert Angus Smith, a pharmacist from Manchester (England), who measured high levels of acidity in rain falling over industrial regions of England and contrasted them to the much lower levels he observed in less polluted areas near the coast.

Little attention was paid to his. We are learning about the environmental effects of acid rain. Acid rain is basically the compounds that form acid are mixing with the water in the clouds and coming down acidic rain. As it can be created at home using various day-to-day ingredients, one of them is vinegar, or you could use, also, lemon juice, that has a lot of acid.

The content and format are designed to accommodate students with various academic backgrounds and to allow for a variety of teaching approaches (such as lectures, discussions, and case studies). Generally, each chapter provides background information, a controversial issue and viewpoints, supplementary.When acid rain falls upon an ecosystem, it affects the water supply as well as the plants and animals in that area.

In aquatic ecosystems, acid rain can harm fish, insects and other aquatic animals. Lowered pH levels can kill many adult fish, and most fish eggs will not hatch when the pH drops below normal.
