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 Stillerchemistry riddles »average 64% explosives productionexplosives production937oil refiningoil refining470fertilizers productionfertilizers production4111synthesis of plasticssynthesis of plastics830 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.orgtechnology riddles »hard 53% sulphuric acidsulphuric acid1990nitric acidnitric acid3893hydrochloric acid hydrochloric acid 463boric acidboric acid872 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.orgchemistry riddles »hard 46% sulphuric acidsulphuric acid1481chloric acidchloric acid1124nitric acidnitric acid546fluoroantimonic acidfluoroantimonic acid2723 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.orgwater riddles »very hard 26% 1.01.06747.07.0175810.010.0184It depends on the temperatureIt depends on the temperature927 What is the common name for acetylsalicylic acid?Aspirin has an antiplatelet effect.
