30, A: One atmospheric compound is responsible (after it has dissolved in water) for both the general acidity of normal rainwater and the acidity of much soil. What is this compound?

30, B: Is this compound put into the atmosphere solely by pollution?

30, C: Why doesn’t this compound cause seawater to become acidic?

30, D: If all of this compound were to vanish from the atmosphere, would humans benefit? Why or why not?

===

30, A: The compound is nitrogen dioxide.

30, B: No, the compound is known to be put into the atmosphere by volcanic activity and decaying vegetation.

30, C: It does not cause seawater to become acidic because seawater has a buffer capacity.

30, D: It would not benefit humans because nitrogen is necessary to create amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins and necessary for life while also compromising over 70% of the Earth’s atmosphere.
