Storyboard Text

  • How acid rain is formed?
  • Acid Rain is mainly caused by combustion of fossil fuels which results in emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx)
  • The exhaust (burning oil and petrol) from cars, trucks, and buses releases nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere.
  • These gases are dissolved in rain cloud. Rain is already acid but when water vapor is mixed with pollutants, it makes it more acidic.
  • Acid rain damages the waxy layer on the leaves of trees. This makes it more difficult for trees to absorb the minerals they need for healthy growth and they may die.
  • When acid rain falls it can go into rivers and lakes. These chemicals can kill fish and plants.
  • OUCH
  • When acid rain falls on building and statues it can erode and dissolve the stone
