Most rainfall is generally slightly acidic due to carbonic acid from carbo di oxide in atmosphere.But acid rain is caused when sulpherdioxide and nitrogen oxideare washed out from the atmosphere by the rain as weak sulphuric acid and nitric acid. Acid rain can cause serious damages to crops, and leaches calcium ions from soil and plant leavescausing an ionic imbalance.
