The U.S. emits 6.4 x 10^10 g SO2(g) per day.
If all of it is converted to H2SO4(aq) and rains over Ontario, calculate the pH of the rain.

How would I get this answer?

You should not ignore the template, your posts can get deleted.

How much rain falls on an average day in Ontario? This is statistical information that you should be able to google. No matter what kind of data you will find (most likely inches per year) it has to be converted to volume per day. Then it is a matter of writing reaction equation, calculating concentration of sulfurous acid, calculating pH.
