Objective:
What is the effect of acid rain have on the growth of radish seeds?

Hypothesis:
The seeds that are not in acid rain will germinate more because the acid rain will cause most of the seeds to not germinate because the acid will burn the chemical the seed needs to germinate

Materials
Diluted Sulfuric Acid
(Acid Rain)
Normal Rain
60 Radish Seed
Glass marking pencil
Masking tape
2 petri dishes
Sponges (2)
Graduated cylinder
Procedure:
Label the petri dishes with “regular” and “acid”.
Place a sponge in each petri dish.
Pour 30 mL of water in the petri dish labeled ”water” and 30 mL of the diluted sulfuric acid into the petri dish labeled “Acid Rain”.
Evenly space 30 radish seeds on the sponges in each petri dish.
Seal the petri dishes securely with the masking tape, and the place them under the the sun.

Conclusion:
The experiment was done to see how acid rain affects seed germination. The experiment was done with 60 radish seeds, sulfidic acid, and water.We put 30 seeds in a petri dish with a sponge that is soaked in sulfuric acid and we put the other 30 seeds in another petri dish with a sponge that is
