You should know the equation and the idea behind acid rain.

Carbon dioxide reacts with water in The atmosphere to form carbonic acid, which is released in acid rain

H2O + CO2 --> H2CO3

it may also be helpful to know that H2CO3 can dissociate and give off one of the protons

H2CO3 --> HCO3- + H+

For acid rain, you should know that it is formed in the atmosphere when carbon dioxide reacts with water, which produces carbonic acid and becomes acid rain.

H2O + CO2 --> H2CO3
