Acid Rain Formula

Acid rain is a form of rain that is unusually acidic. The rainfall possesses elevated levels of hydrogen ions (low pH). Acid rain is a result of air pollution. The acidic rainfall causes environmental harm, mainly affects forests and lakes. Make use of this acid rain formula to learn the acidic rain reactions.

Acid Rain Formula

Formula Used:

H2O (l) + CO2 (g) ⇌ H2CO3 (aq)
Carbonic acid then can ionize in water forming low concentrations of hydronium and carbonate ions
H2O (l) + H2CO3 (aq) ⇌ HCO3‾ (aq) + H3O+ (aq)

H2O (l) - Water
CO2 (g) - Carbon dioxide
H2CO3(aq) -Carbonic acid
