Around the world, it is observed that lots of buildings, historical places are harmed. The damaged buildings have in common the features of the rainfall in their places. Effect of acid rain in these types of locations had been observed. Damages of the buildings have emerged because of the acid rains. The purpose of this project is observing the effects of different acids on the material of these types of buildings. The experimental design was prepared with the acids which we have got high probability to experience in our daily lives and with the building materials that can be characterized as carbonates. And also as carbonates, marbles has been preferred since they are more similar to the structures of buildings, where the carbonate as the dense. Used acids can be sorted into coke, vinegar, lemon juice, nitric acid and sulfuric acid. By comparing the observations, the most effective acid on carbonates and also the most powerful acid in the combination of acid rain can be found. This extended essay contains the background information about the subject, the collected data and analysis of these data. In addition, it includes the prevention and protection ways for the buildings and any other materials that can be affected by acids.
