A car air bag requires 70. L of nitrogen gas to inflate properly. The following equation represents the production of nitrogen gas:

2NaNsubscript3 -> 2Na + 3Nsubscript2

The density of nitrogen gas is typically 1.16g/L at room temp. Calculate the number of grams of Nsubscript2 that are needed to inflate the air bag.

  • Chemistry -

    2NaN3 ==> 2Na + 3N2
    Use the density of nitrogen to convert 70 L(needed to fill the air bag) to grams.
    mass = volume x density
