What causes acid rain?



  1. 0 Votes

    Many different sources provide the necessary compounds to create acid rain; in the United States coal burning contributes large amounts of acidic pollutants that aid in the formation of acid rain.

    Burning coal releases high volumes of sulfur dioxides and other acidic compounds that mix with water in the atmosphere.  Winds blow these water and acid mixtures miles from the source and they eventually fall in some form of precipitation.  In addition to acid rain, there can also be acidic sleet, snow, and fog.
