The burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, and gas, releases sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) into the atmosphere. These gases react with water vapor and other atmospheric components to form sulfuric acid and nitric acid, which can then combine with rain droplets to form acid precipitation. This acid precipitation can have harmful effects on ecosystems, including damage to vegetation, soil, and aquatic life.
Dissolving a rock in acid is the equivalent of
No, schist rock does not bubble when it is placed in hydrochloric acid. Schist rock does not react with any acid.
Carbonic acid is what forms when carbon dioxide dissolves in water. It is a weak acid but will over time, dissolve many rocks, especially carbonates such as limestone. To see what a very weak solution can do over millions of years one only has to visit Carlsbad Caverns or other karst caves found throughout the world.
A chemical change
Acid precipitation weather rocks faster than normal precipitation because acid precipitation has a higher concentration of acid than normal precipitation.
Because there is acid in this precipitation than normal precipitation so it weathers the Rock alot faster because acid is very strong
Acid precipitation weather rocks faster than normal precipitation because acid precipitation has a higher concentration of acid than normal precipitation. Because if the acidity is too high, acid precipitation can be harmful to animals and plants. When animals are harmed, they will start moving around a lot more than normal, causing rocks to weather even faster.
A 4.8-kg limestone rock and some sediments that are not limestone
It can't, unless it may become compressed and change to a harder version of the rock it was before. Also abit of acid weathering could corrode and change the rock shape and make it weaker, but this is over a long period of time.
over thousands of years the rock begins to change
