About of the largest Acid rain results when sulfur dioxide (SO 2) and nitrogen oxides (NO X) are emitted into the atmosphere and transported by wind and air SO 2 and NO X react with water, oxygen and other chemicals to form sulfuric and nitric acids.

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   Rain is liquid water in the form of droplets that have condensed from atmospheric water vapor and then become heavy enough to fall under is a major component of the water cycle and is responsible for depositing most of the fresh water on the Earth.

Depending on where you live, maybe you've heard of acid rain. Now, acid rain is not pure acid falling from the sky, but rather it is rainfall or atmospheric moisture that has been mixed with elements and gases that have caused the moisture to become more acidic than normal.

The range goes from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. pHs of less than 7 indicate acidity, whereas a pH of greater than 7 indicates a base. pH is really a measure of the relative amount of free hydrogen and hydroxyl ions in the :// Relief rainfall, also known as orographic rainfall, occurs in areas where land increases in height.

It is very common on the west coast of the United Kingdom due to the prevailing weather coming from that direction. Relief rainfall is formed when the air cools as it rises over relief features in the landscape such as hills or ://.
