      Some coal is high in sulfur (S) content, and when it burns, it forms sulfuric acid (H2SO4), a major component of acid rain, by a series of reactions. Balance the equation for the overall conversion drawn below. S(s) + O2(g) + H2O(l) right arrow H2SO4(l).

Qualitative and semiquantitative tests demonstrating the evolution of chlorine have been made by heating chlorides at low temperatures in the presence of sulfur. Quantitative tests on to-. Low-rank coal is defined as consisting of a gross caloric value (e.g. heating value) of less than 24 MJ/kg (moist, ash-free basis) and mean vitrinite reflectance as less than %. Higher rank coals (medium and high rank) are defined as consisting of gross calorific value equal to or more than 24 MJ/kg (moist, ash-free basis) and vitrinite.

For example, the sulfur content of coal may range from low (less than 1 weight percent), through medium (1 to 3 weight percent), to high (greater than 3 weight percent); ash yields may range from a low of about 3 percent to a high of 49 percent (if ash yields are 50 percent, or greater, the sub-stance is no longer called coal).

The United States Environmental Protection Agency regulates the coal ash ponds under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and regulations found in 40 CFR PartSubpart D.

Your question sounds as if you believe we add sulfur to the coal, which is wrong. Sulfur, to some degree, is present in coal naturally.
