Amount of Coal Needed to Produce a pH of 2

How many metric tons of 5%-S coal would be needed to yield the H2SO4 required to produce a 5.0 cm rainfall of pH 2.00 over an area of 100 square kilometers? Hint: calculate the volume of rain, mol H+, mass of S, mass of coal. If you could work out the problem for me, that would be great! It makes it easier to understand.
