Ammonium nitrate has been used as high explosive because its unstable & decomposes into several gaseous substances. The rapid expansion of the gaseous substances produces the explosive force.
Calculate the mass of each product gas if 1.25g of ammonium nitrate reacts.
Balance the equation.
Convert 1.25 g NH4NO3 to moles.
Convert moles NH4NO3 to moles N2, moles O2, and moles H2O. (Three conversions each done separately).
Convert moles of each to grams of each.
