ABSTRACT

This paper comprises the effect and impact of Precipitation including all solid and liquid forms of water that are deposited on the Earth's surface from the atmosphere. It includes rain, snow, hail, dew and sleet. All forms of precipitation are acid in so far as they have a pH of less than 7; in general, precipitation unaffected by human activity has a pH of 5.6. This naturally acidic state of precipitation is caused by the combination of water and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to produce carbonic acid. However, the term acid precipitation, or acid rain, is usually applied to precipitation characterized by a pH of less than 5.1 (Elsworth 1984) and that contains sulphurous and nitrous acids. The latter are derived from various sources, among which fossil fuels are the most important. Environmental issues that have developed in industrialized economies have led to an emerging multidisciplinary field of chemistry known as environmental chemistry, beginning in the late 1980s[1]. Primarily concerned with understanding how environmental processes function naturally and how humans impact that natural environmental flow, environmental chemistry includes the study of water, soil, and air chemistry. Atmospheric and environmental chemists compare the natural state of these resources and determine how they are affected by human activities[2].
