Acid rain can damage plants, animals, soil, water, building materials, and people. Scientists have dis-covered that burning fossil fuels creates acid rain through air pollution. People burn fossil fuels such as coal and oil to make electricity. Electricity heats and lights buildings and runs appliances such as televisions and video.

JOHNSON, FENG LIU, and JITENDRA J. SHAH. Learning About Acid Rain: A Teacher's Guide for Grades 6 through 8 This book is intended for teachers of students in 6th-8th grade. It is written at a 6th grade level and the language, concepts, and experiments may need to be adapted for other grades accordingly.

      Acid Rain in the Adirondacks: An Environmental History. Jerry Jenkins, Karen Roy, Charles Driscoll, and Christopher Buerkett. Cornell University Press, Ithaca, NY, pp., illus. $ (ISBN paper). Of all the literature on acid rain that I have encountered, this book, Acid Rain in the Adirondacks, is the most readable Author: Bruce B. Hicks. Acid rain is a growing problem, and if we do not employ and enforce corrective solutions immediately, the damage could be irreversible. Understanding the causes, effects, and solutions of acid rain is essential for everybody. It must be made mandatory for vehicles to comply with efficient emission standards.

Considerable reductions of SO 2 emissions are possible using existing techonologies. In order to reduce the effects of acid rain, the EPA has recently initiated an Acid Rain Program aimed at "significantly reducing electric utilties emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides".

The Clean Air Act's primary goal is reduction of annual SO 2 emissions by 10 million tons below levels ( Marked Categories: sulfuric acid, total cost of automatic rain operated wiper, this process also burns the coal more efficiently by about 5 this process removes 90 of the sulfur oxides and 15 35 of the ni, ppt on acid rain chemistry, acid rain ppt pdf, acid rain chemistry ppt.

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.

The widespread fear that acid rain is having or may have devastating effects has. 'Acid rain' is a broad term used to describe several ways that acids fall out of the atmosphere. A more precise term is acid deposition, which has two parts: wet and dry. Wet deposition refers to acidic rain, fog, and snow.

As this acidic water flows over and through the ground, it affects a variety of plants and animals. The strength of the effects depends on many factors, including how 3/5(1). Acid rain is rain that is more acidic than normal. Acid rain's spread and damage involves weather, chemistry, soil, and the life cycles of plants and animals on the land and from acid rain in the water.

Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides, the major sources of acid rain. Measurement of acidity of Rain 4. TYPES OF ACID RAIN ACID RAIN Wet. DURHAM, N.C. – A legacy of acid rain has acidified forest soils throughout the northeastern United States, lowering the growth rate of trees.

In an attempt to mitigate this trend, in scientists added calcium to an experimental forest in New Hampshire; tree growth recovered, but a decade later there was a major increase in the nitrogen content of stream water draining the.

Acid rain had adversely affected aquatic life in about 10 percent of eastern lakes and streams. Acid rain had contributed to the decline of red spruce at high elevations by reducing that species' cold tolerance.

Acid rain had contributed to erosion and corrosion of buildings and materials. The term ‘acid rain’ refers to atmospheric deposition of acidic constituents that impact the earth as rain, snow, particulates, gases, and vapor.
