When ammonia gas is burned in oxygen the products formed are water and nitrogen monoxide gas. Write the balanced equation showing this reaction


NH4 + O2 --> H2O + NO


i am stuck balancing this

  • chemistry -

    2,3,4,2 try as coefficents.

  • chemistry -

    I should call your attention to your formula for ammonia. It is NH3 and not NH4. That could be why you are having trouble balancing it.
