Acid rain forms from the reaction between CO2, SO2 and NO2 with H2O in the atmosphere. These reactions form the acids H2CO3, H2SO4, and HNO3, which release H+ ions in solution to create acidity. The main way to reduce acid rain is to reduce the emission of CO2, SO2 and NO2 into the atmosphere.

Rain becomes acidic when water combines with pollutants in the air, such as SO2.
