What is Acid Rain?

Hi Himanshu,

The rain contains acidic components such as sulfuric or nitric acid when fall to the ground from the atmosphere in wet or dry forms is known as acid rain. Acid rain can occur in the form of rain, snow, fog, hail, or even dust.

Acids are corrosive in nature and are a strong dehydrating agent. When corrosive acids react with the skin, they hydrolyze the fats. Strong acids are harmful to the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract.

When an acid reacts with the skin, it develops redness, pain, peeling, and blistering. 

When the acid comes in contact with the eyes, it may cause watering, pain, open sores, and blindness.
