Acids questions This is a list of recently added questions about acids. Which acid mostly contributes to acid rains?Sulfuric acid. The most important gas which leads to acidification is sulfur dioxide, coming from fossil fuel combustion and industry (and, in lesser amounts, from volcanoes and wildfires). In recent years, emissions of nitrogen oxides which are oxidized to form nitric acid are of increasing importance due to stricter controls on emissions of sulfur containing compounds.

World production of sulfuric acid in 2004 was about 180 million tonnes. About 60% of this amount is consumed for fertilizers, particularly superphosphates, ammonium phosphate and ammonium sulfates. Similarily, 75–80% of the 26M tons of nitric acid produced annually is used to produce ammonium nitrate fertilizer.Created by: Monica Stilleraverage 64% explosives productionexplosives production989oil refiningoil refining482fertilizers productionfertilizers production4333synthesis of plasticssynthesis of plastics870chemistry riddles » Which acid is used for the production of explosives?Nitric acid is the primary reagent used for nitration - the addition of a nitro group. Nitration reactions are notably used for the production of explosives, for example synthesis of nitroglycerine, the conversion of guanidine to nitroguanidine and the conversion of toluene to trinitrotoluene (TNT).Created by: globalquiz.orghard 53% sulphuric acidsulphuric acid2086nitric acidnitric acid4068hydrochloric acid hydrochloric acid 480boric acidboric acid920technology riddles » What is the strongest known acid?Fluoroantimonic acid is an ionic liquid created by reacting hydrogen fluoride with antimony pentafluoride in stoichiometrically equivalent amounts. The 1:1 combination forms the strongest known superacid, 10^16 (10 quadrillion) times stronger than 100% sulfuric acid.Created by: globalquiz.orghard 46% sulphuric acidsulphuric acid1552chloric acidchloric acid1173nitric acidnitric acid561fluoroantimonic acidfluoroantimonic acid2838chemistry riddles » What is exactly the pH value of distilled water?It depends on the temperature. Pure water is about 7 at 25 °C; this value decreases with increasing temperatures. At 50 °C, it is 6.55. It is also worth to note, that water that has been exposed to air is mildly acidic, because it absorbs carbon dioxide from the air.Created by: globalquiz.orgvery hard 25% 1.01.07037.07.0182910.010.0195It depends on the temperatureIt depends on the temperature955water riddles » What is the common name for acetylsalicylic acid?Aspirin has an antiplatelet effect.
