List three ways in which human activities have contributed to the production of gases that dissolve in water to form acid precipitation

  • Chemistry -

    A hint t get you started. Generation of electricity by burning coal. Increase CO2 and SO2 (S is in most coal that is burned). CO2 becomes H2CO3 and SO2 becomes SO3 then H2SO4. Nitrogen oxides, usually described as NOx come from the tail pipe of cars when fuel is burned. More people, more cars, more NOx which dissolves in water to form HNOx.
