Definition:

“Air pollution” is formed when acid chemicals are integrated into mist, fog or rain. The acid in rain comes from nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides, yields of “burning coal” and other fuels as well as from industrial procedures. The nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides are linked to 2 acids:

nitric acid & sulfuric acid. When nitrogen oxides & sulfur dioxides are unconstrained from power plants, with wind they blow away. If the “acid chemicals” in the air are blown into parts where the climate is wet, the acids can drop to Earth in the mist, fog or rain.

In parts where the climate is dry, the “acid chemicals” may become included into smokes or dusts. (Groups.molbiosci.northwestern.edu, 2015)
