The 1997 acid rain assessment provided a obvious need for further reductions, negations, and research of acid rain this eventually lead to canada-wide acid rain strategy in 1998 for 2000 and beyond. Acid precipitation can be very harmful to the environment it can kill fish by lowering the ph of lakes and rivers it can harm trees and plants by burning their leaves and depriving them of nutrients in addition, it can weather away stone buildings and monuments in the preliminary activity, you. Acid rain effects worksheet record in the table below your predictions (what you think will happen to each item) next, record your observations (a detailed description of what actually happened to each item) after one day in each solution and after one week in each solution. Deterioration of cement concrete specimens caused by simulated acid rain was investigated by laboratory tests before and after cement concrete specimens were exposed to simulated acid rain, the neutralized depth, the compressive strength and the chemical compositions in the hardened cement paste were measured.

Acid rain is a problem of increasing agricultural, environmental, and ecological concerns worldwide this study investigated impacts of simulated acid rain (sar) on cation leaching from the latosol in south china. Acid rain is a name associated with atmospheric conditions in which high concentrations of nitric and sulfuric acids are found this high concentration of nitric and sulfuric acid reacts with water in the atmosphere, causing precipitation which is unusually acidic (high concentration of hydrogen ions. - investigating factors that affect the rate of reaction between a metal and an acid factors that may affect the experiment + fair test the variables that could affect the rate of reaction are the temperature, amount of magnesium, concentration of acid, surface area of magnesium and volume of acid.
Every year, acid rain affects forests, crops, lakes and oceans it causes hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage to buildings to investigate ways of reducing or solving the problem of acid rain. Normal, ecologically healthy rain should have a ph of about 56 according to most scientists but due to harmful air pollution from factories and cars, rain in some areas of the us has a much. With a permanent marker label one pot ‘acid rain’ and the other pot ‘normal’ water both pots and place them under a direct source of light repeat watering every day or every other day (depending on seed type) until each pot has a sprout with leaves. The resulting effluent is known as acid drainage (also acid rock drainage (ard) or acid mine drainage (amd)) as the water becomes more acidic, its capacity to leach other elements from the rock, such as metals, increases and is known as metal leaching (ml.
