How does the burning of fossil fuels contribute to the sulfur and nitrogen oxides in the atmosphere?
Well, fossil fuels contain many different elements, it contains sulfer, nitrogen, carbon, and many heavy metals.
SO, to form SO2 by combustion:
S + O2 ---> S02
To form Nitrogen oxides (nitrites)
N + O2 ---> NO2
They are also very bad for the atmosphere and along with CO2, they make up 90% of greenhouse gases, which have a great effect.
