How many grams of NaN3 are required to produce 17.4 ft3 of nitrogen gas?

  • chemistry -

    1. Write the balanced chemical equation.
    2. Convert 17.4 cubic feet N2 to liters. Then convert liters to moles. I assume this is at STP.
    3. Using the coefficients in the balanced equation, convert moles N2 to moles NaN3.
    4. Convert moles NaN3 to grams. g = moles x molar mass.
    Post your work if you get stuck.
