NH3(g) + 202(g) = HNO3(aq) +H2O (l)
Is this reaction a combination, decomposition, single replacement, double replacment or other?
Also is it redox or non redox?
Its a redox reaction.
Is it also an "other" reaction because it is a dehydration reaction?
It may be "other" but surely not "dehydration." I don't see a loss of water anywhere. It might be "dehydrogenation" since we are dehydrogenating NH3.
Thanks. I am trying to figure out if it is an "other" reaction or double replacement. But, I just don't see the double replacement in it???
For what it's worth, I learned the types of chemical reactions as:
1. synthesis or combination reactions in which two or ore substances produce a single substance. A + B ==> AB
2. single replacement
A + BX ==> AX + B
3. double replacement.
AX + BY ==> AY + BX
4. Combustion reactions.
X + O2 ==> XO2
AB ==> A + B
6. Redox reactions.
The reaction you posted is NOT
Not double replacement.
is redox. I still don't know what falls under "other" in your classification but I would call redox "other."
Thank you so much. I wanted to make sure I was on the right track.
