limestone quarry acidic rain water

What happens when limestone is mixed with water?

1. Lime stone is Chemically CaCO3. It has NO REACTION with water. 2. However it will react with acids (like HCl) to form Calcium salt and liberate Carbon dioxide gas. 3. CaCO3+2HCl—→CaCl2+CO2+H2O 4. Lime stone on heating

What is Acid Rain?

2021/07/08Acid rain, or acid deposition, is a broad term that includes any form of precipitation with acidic components, such as sulfuric or nitric acid that fall to the ground from the atmosphere in wet or dry forms. This can include rain, snow, fog, hail or even dust that is acidic.

Soil pH and Lime: How Lime Affects your Soil

2021/03/06Soil pH should be measured at least once a year as a general practice. This can be done using any number of kits or through the use of a pH meter. The lower the pH, the more lime it will take to correct. For example, a soil with a pH of 4.5 will require significantly more lime to correct to 6.5 than a lawn with an initial pH of 6.0.
