How are gases in acid rain produced?

    Acid rain is formed when there are higher than normal amounts of nitric and sulfuric acid in the atmosphere.  These gases can come from natural sources, such as volcanoes and decaying organic matter, as well as being man made.  When fossil fuels are combusted, byproducts in the form of pollution that greatly contribute to acid rain are nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide.  Although natureal sources play a role in the formation of acid rain, manmade pollution is most accountable.  In the US, about 2/3 of all sulfer dioxide and 1/4 of nitrogen oxides come from electric power plants burning fossil fuels as part of their process.
