Black smoke rises in the air from a factory in Georgia. The black smoke is a pollutant. When this pollutant returns to Earth it becomes acid rain. How does the acid rain change the plants' and animals' environment?
An acid rain is a type of rain or precipitation that has a high level of hydrogen ions resulting in low pH. It can prevent growth of seedlings because it hinders the cell division of plants. Since animals consume plants, they can establish new dietary habits or migrate to areas that have a healthier environment.
