      Acid rain is capable of damaging the buildings and historic monuments which are made up of rocks such as limestone and marble. This is because these rocks contain a large amount of Calcium Carbonate, which reacts with the Sulfuric Acid to create Gypsum. Gypsum flakes off easily. This is shown in the following reaction:
      CaCO3 (s) + H2SO4 (aq) →CaSO4 (aq) + CO2 (g) + H2O (l)

      Q. 4:
      The initial velocity is u=0, acceleration a= 9.8 m²/s, time t=5 s
      Last velocity= Initial Velocity + (Acceleration x time)
      v = u+ at
      v=0 + 9.8×5
      = 49 m/s

      Q. 6:
      When dealing with audible frequencies, the human ear cannot distinguish an echo from the original sound if the delay is less than 1/10 of a second. Thus, since the velocity of sound is approximately 343 m/s at a normal room temperature of about 20°C, the reflecting object must be more than 17.15 m from the sound source at this temperature for an echo to be heard by a person at the source.
