      BACKGROUND. Acid rain is the term commonly used by scientists to describe rain that is abnormally acidic. What does that mean? Well, plain distilled water, like that used in laboratories, is neutral (not acidic or basic). Since rain naturally has things dissolved in it, it will always be slightly acidic. Acid rain has caused billions of dollars damage to forests, lakes, and farm land in 31 states during the past decade, he adds. The governors also agreed acid deposition originating within New Author: David Purcell.

Acid rain is a rain or any other form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that it has elevated levels of hydrogen ions (low pH).It can have harmful effects on plants, aquatic animals and infrastructure.

Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which react with the water molecules in the atmosphere to produce acids. Science Teacher, v51 n3 p, Mar Discusses various types of acid rain, considered to be a century-old problem.
