Professor with three technicians carries out the research work. He explains them in a song what scientific research is. However, the technicians are hurrying home. They leave a beaker with sulfuric acid on a table. A charwoman pushes the beaker and thus the acid leaves the lab for nature.
Sulfuric acid is a strong corrosive. It eats whatever it finds, especially objects made of metals.
Professor tries to find the sulfuric acid. He shows how dangerous the acid is. Not wishing to lose time he leaves and continues on searching the sulfuric acid.
In the meantime the villagers talk about a strange water that eats whatever it finds. It is said that the name of the water is sulfuric acid. Three men, Mark, Luke, and Jack are passing the village when going for a trip. They explain in a song what the sulfuric acid is, how useful it is in a lab and in industry but how dangerous in nature.
After Mark's, Luke's, and Jack's leave the professor comes looking for the sulfuric acid. The villagers get angry with him and take him to the committe for examination of breaking safety rules. The charwoman gives her witness.
Mark, Luke, and Jack are returning from their unsuccessful trip because the sulfuric acid ate the bridge where they planned to cross the river. At that time the charwoman is coming saying that the sulfuric acid is approaching the village. Mark, Luke, and Jack decide to save the village. They take three monomers, namely acrylo nitrile, butadiene, and styrene and let them react to create an ABS co-polymer. They made a vessel of it and catch the sulfuric acid in it. Two pieces of lead are emerged in it and form a lead-acid battery that supplies electricity for various devices.
