Dear Student

Some pollutants like sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide react with the water vapour present in the atmosphere to form sulphuric acid and nitric acid. The acid drops down with rain, making the rain acidic. This is called acid rain. Acid rain affects us in many ways.
(i) Acid rain corrodes the marble of the monument.
(ii) Acid rain damages building and sculptural materials.
(iii) Acid rain damages fresh water also.
(iv) Acid rain also damages our crops and also makes it poisonous.
(v) Acid rain damages the leaves of plants.

​Thanks
