write the chemical equation for the following:
solid ammonium nitrite decomposes to form an inert gas and water vapor.
so, I think it's NH4NO2 ----> H2O +
I can't think of, but I can't think of what to do with N because N is not an inert gas... Am I interpreting the equation wrong.
The reactant is H2O + N2
Now balance the equation
typo, the PRODUCT is H2O + N2
Important point for you to remember. N2 gas IS an inert gas.
oh, okay, I think I was reading that wrong... I'd forgotten N was a gas when it's N2.... Thank you! :D
