What is acid rain and how does it impact ecosystems?
Transcript of What is acid rain and how does it impact ecosystems?
major pollutants that cause acid rain. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) and
nitrogen oxides (NOx) contribute
greatly to the visibility impairment
after acid rain. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) do contribute to human health problems like increased illness and early death from heart and lung disorders like asthma and bronchitis. The product is sulfuric acid.
The reactant is sulfur dioxide and hydrogen.
The elements are 2 hydrogen, 1 sulfur, and 4 oxygen atoms
The equation is balanced A catalyst is a substance which alter the rate of a chemical reaction and is chemically unchanged at the end of the reaction. No, there is not a catalyst in this reaction.
The H2SO4 causes the concentration of H+ ions to increase so the pH level of the water drops to dangrous levels. The impact that this research had on me is I was shocked at how it can kill areas of wild life and even cause harm to people. I was mostly shocked at how most of it is pollution from us. This information is the real world.
Acid rain happens and it causes problems all over the world and people should do something to stop it.
