    Acid Rain Essay written by Unknown When thought of acid rain, some people may think of green, burning acid falling from the sky, destroying everything in sight. This may be a bit ridiculous and hard to believe, but as absurd as it sound, it is not far from the truth. Acid deposition has long been a subject of debate because of the widespread environ-mental damage it is responsible for. As one of the major results of air pollution, acid rain can corrode metal and limestone structures, leach impor...

    Acid Rain If you have ever wondered why precious monuments are fading away, or the reason your car starts to look old, or if you can't understand why the bricks on the side of your house are breaking, look up the term Acid rain in your encyclopedia. Acid rain is the cause of all of this and much more. Acid rain is a widespread term used to describe all forms of acid precipitation (rain, snow, hail, fog, etc. ) (). Precipitation is naturally acidic because of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Aci...

    Acid Rain Scientists from around the globe have come to a conclusion, on the basis of environmental evidence, that acid rain is now a serious problem in the industrialized regions of the world. Acid rain impacts on lakes and vegetation. Many lakes are extremely sensitive to acid rain because they are unable to neutralize it. Such lakes are either enclosed systems, that have no way of flushing out the acids, or lakes that cover relatively inert bedrock which does not react chemically to neutraliz...

I did the exact same experiment, using a ten to one acid to base ratio after testing them with pH paper, carefully wrote down the results, and then cleaned all of the used equipment. I repeated this until I could find no other chemicals to test, and than I made my charts. Discussion The following documents the outcome from my experiments. You can find the rest of the charts e...

    FOLIC ACID Folic acid is the most common term for water-soluble B-vitamin that can be found naturally as well as in vitamin pills. Found naturally, folic acid is actually referred to as folate, while folic acid refers to the synthetic form of the vitamin. (For reasons of simplification, this paper will use the two terms interchangeably. ) The functions of folic acid in our diet are mostly for prevention. Probably the most commonly known function of folic acid is in the prevention of neural tube...

    Acid Rain Acid rain forms when sulfur and nitrogen dioxides combine with moisture in the atmosphere to produce rain, snow, or another kind of precipitation. This kind of pollution may also be suspended in fog or deposited in a dry form. Acid rain is most common in North America and Europe. Acid rain has also been detected in other areas of the world such as tropical rain forests of Africa. Canada has placed limitations on the sulfur emissions. The United States has not, so the emissions may stil...

    Acids & Bases An acid is any compound that can respond to a base to form a salt. Also, it is a substance that generates the positive ion of the solvent where the acid is dissolved. A base is the opposite of an acid. It is a substance that eliminates the hydrogen ions (protons) from an acid and joins them through a chemical reaction. Sulfuric Acid Sulfuric acid is an extremely strong acid. Concentrated sulfuric acid is a strong dehydrating agent, which reacts violently with water. In aqueous sol...

    It s Bringing Down Our Ecosystems "Acid rain is a term used to describe the acidity of wet and dry deposition" (Middleton 50). Deposition is just the process of depositing. According to Middleton, who wrote the Atlas of Environmental Issues, the different types of wet deposition are snow, sleet, hail, fog, mist and dew. This is also known as acid precipitation. Ash, soot, and gases are types of dry deposition. Many environmental effects have been attributed to acid rain. Such effects are damage...

    Acid Rain is caused by pollution containing sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, and ozone (SO'y, NOx, and O'y) is released into the air. These chemicals are absorbed into clouds and results in Acid Precipitation (Acid Rain, Acid Snow, Acid Hail, Acid Sleet). When the chemicals aren't absorbed into clouds, they can drift for miles and fall to the ground, resulting in Acid Deposition, or dry deposition. When Acid Rain falls into water it is mixed in with the normal water and causes the pH of the entir...

    The Effects of Acid Rain on Lakes and Trees Acid rain has long been argued by society's most formidable minds. It indirectly destroys ecosystems that surround forests and lakes (Taylor, 26). People need to make decisions dealing with the destruction of nature and the role acid rain plays in it. Acid rain destroys millions of forests and lakes (Taylor, 26). Studies show that acid rain is one of the largest contributing factors in the death of forests and lakes. Acid rain indirectly kills million...

  • Acid Rain Oxides Sulfur Produce

    Acid rain is a form of precipitation that contains high levels of sulfuric or nitric acids. In simple terms, acid rain is hail, rain, snow, or sleet that is more acidic than normal. Precipitation naturally is a little acidic but when the pH level drops below a set standard it is acid rain. In general, acid rain is a very complicated problem that is caused by many factors. In this paper, I will discuss how emissions caused by humans effect pH level in precipitation. First, I will define, in detai...

    Acid rain is a common term for pollution caused when sulfur and nitrogen dioxides combine with atmospheric moisture to produce a rain, snow, or hail of sulfuric and nitric acids. Such pollution may also be suspended in a fog, or the pollutants may be deposited in dry form. Environmental damage from acid rain has been reported in northern Europe and North America. High levels of acid rain have also been detected in other areas of the world, such as above the tropical rain forest of Africa. Acid r...

    Background Knowledge: Rate is a measure of how fast or slow something is. For example, Silver Chloride precipitating (this is a very fast reaction) and Concrete setting (it may take a couple of days for concrete to harden). Rate is a measure of the change that happens in a single unit of time. Any suitable unit of time can be used - a second, a minute, an hour and even a day. To find the rate of reaction, you should measure: The amount of reactant used up per unit of time or the amount of a prod...

    Acid rain forms high in the clouds in a gaseous form. Theses gasses stay in the atmosphere until they come in contact with rain that dissolves the gasses. A mild solution of sulfuric and nitric acid is formed. These drops fall to the earth and get into our water table beneath the surface. From there they are collected into streams, rivers, and lakes that eventually will lead to the ocean. Rain isn't the only form acidity falls to the earth. About half of all the acidity falls back through dry d...

    The damaging effects of acid rain on society is becoming overwhelmed with great amounts of pollution from cars, factories and an large amounts of garbage. The immense amounts of sulphur dioxide put into the air causes high levels of acid in the atmosphere. When this sulphuric acid is absorbed into moisture in the air, then rain can be harmful to the environment. Acid rain is destroying lots of things in our environment. It is hurting lakes, air and thew rest of our ecosystem. Acid rain is killin...

    What does acid rain do to trees? The impact of acid rain on trees ranges from minimal to severe, depending on the region of the country and on intensity and type of air pollutant. Acid rain, acid fog and acid vapour damage the surfaces of leaves and needles, reduce a tree s ability to withstand cold, and inhibit plant germination and reproduction. Consequently, tree vitality and regenerative capability are reduced. How else does acid rain affect forests? Prolonged exposure to acid rain causes fo...
