The cause of ocean acidification
Question:
Ocean acidification is that our oceans absorb about a quarter of the carbon dioxide that humans produce by burning fossil fuels each year, and that's changing their basic chemistry. This is particularly bad for creatures with calcium carbonate in their shells or skeletons, like mollusks, crabs, and corals.


According to the video, what exactly cause ocean acidification by affecting pH?

Bicarbonate lons

Carbon Dioxide

Hydrogen lons

Carbonic Acid

This is the one which actually affect pH

Carbon dioxide can lead to decrease pH, but it is not the exact one.

Carbon acid can lead to decrease pH, but it is not the exact one.

Bicarbonate lons need to transfer into hydrogen lons for affecting pH
