Where does the sour planet rain?
the planet Venus
The most acid rain in the Solar System is found on the planet Venus, where the working fluid in the evaporation, condensation and precipitation cycle is a sulfuric acid solution (instead of water, as on Earth).
Do other planets have acid rain?
The rain on other planets has very different chemical compositions. On Venus it rains sulfuric acid. On Mars, it snows dry ice, which is carbon dioxide in a solid state. Saturn's moon Titan rains methane, and on Jupiter it rains helium and mushy ammonia hail.
Does it rain acid on Mars?
Bad news is that they are poisonous. These clouds rain sulfuric acid so corrosive that it would eat through your skin on contact. On Mars, the surface is rocky and desert-like.
Where in the world does acid rain fall?
Because of how acid rain is formed, it is often found near areas where lots of fossil fuels are burned and/or areas that lack strict emissions regulations. The image below shows the average pH of rain across the United States. This map below is all over the globe.
Why does acid rain have a lower pH?
Explanation: Acid rain, or rain with a lower pH due to nitric and/or sulfuric acids, falls in many places around the globe. Natural rain is typically somewhat acidic, with a pH just below 6. Acid rain usually has a pH of 5.5-5.0, but can be lower in some areas. Because of how acid rain is formed, it is often found near areas where many…
How is acid rain related to fossil fuels?
The fossil fuels that humans burn for energy can come back to haunt us like acid rain. Acid rain describes any type of precipitation that contains high levels of nitric and sulfuric acids.
This means that if acid rain touches your skin, it will not burn you. But there are still many ways in which you can be indirectly affected by the rain. The main thing that will suffer is the environment.
