Works Cited
Acid rain is formed by a chemical reaction that begins when compounds like SO2 (sulfur dioxide) and NOx (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

Acidic material that falls from the atmosphere to the earth in either wet (rain, sleet, snow, or fog) or dry (gases and particles) forms.
