What makes an acid rain cloud?



  1. 0 Votes

    The most important of acid rain-forming pollution in the US is the burning of fossil fuels like coal for electricity. Among the many polluting substances released by coal-fired power plants are nitric and sulfuric acids – gases that spread high into the atmosphere, to react with water vapor and other naturally occurring gases in the clouds. The chemical reactions that result lead to formation of acidic raindrops or other forms of precipitation, which fall to the ground and have potential to turn lakes, streams and soils acidic as well.
