  • Sulphuric Acid - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

    8/14/2012 · Sulfuric acid (H 2 SO 4) (the historical name oil of vitriol) is an inorganic chemical that is a highly corrosive strong mineral acid that is a pungent-ethereal, colorless to slightly yellow viscous liquid that is soluble in water at all concentrations. Sometimes, the acid may be sold as a dark brown liquid (dye added during production) to ...

    The sulfates and hydrogen sulfates in acid rain can can leach essential plant nutrients such as calcium and magnesium, from the soil. Acid rain disrupts the process of photosynthesis resulting in damage to plant life. At low concentrations it retards the production of chlorophyll and at high concentrations it forms sulfuric acid which kills the ...

    Sulfuric acid and nitric acid are the main acids present in acid rain. The problem occurs when rainwater combines with gaseous oxides of sulfur, nitrogen, and phosphoric and hydrochloric acid mists.

  • Acid Rain Students Site: What causes acid rain?

    Sources of Acid Rain Acid rain is caused by a chemical reaction that begins when compounds like sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are released into the air. These substances can rise very high into the atmosphere, where they mix and react with water, oxygen, and other chemicals to form more acidic pollutants, known as acid rain. Sulfur dioxide ...
