Nitric acid, Sulfuric acid


With NO2 in gaseous phase:

NO2 + OH• → HNO3

The second acid present is Nitric acid which may also be formed due to lightening strikes.

With SO2 in gaseous phase:

SO2 + OH• → HOSO2•

HOSO2• + O2 → HO2• + SO3

SO3 + H2O → H2SO4

Thus the primary acid is Sulphuric acid.

sulfuric and nitric acids


Acid rain results when sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOX) are emitted into the atmosphere and transported by wind and air currents. The SO2 and NOX react with water, oxygen and other chemicals to form sulfuric and nitric acids. These then mix with water and other materials before falling to the ground.
