How many metric tons of 5%-S coal would be needed to yield the H2SO4 required to produce a 4.0-cm rainfall of pH 2.00 over an area of 100 square kilometers?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 19, 2018, 8:44 pm ad1c9bdddf
It is best to break this one into parts.
Volume of the rain to cover 100 square kilometers with 4.0 cm of rainfall. I am going to want this in Liters as pH = -log[H] and the concentration is in M= moles/L.
I have as a conversion factor 1000L per cubic meter.
4.0 cm = 4.0 x 10^-2 m
100 sq Km = 100 Km^2 x ...
