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?

  • Chemistry -

    Its a redox reaction.

  • Chemistry -

    Is it also an "other" reaction because it is a dehydration reaction?

  • Chemistry -

    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???

  • Chemistry -

    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

    5. Decomposition.
    AB ==> A + B

    6. Redox reactions.
    The reaction you posted is NOT
    single replacement.
    Not double replacement.
    Not combustion.
    Not decomposition.
    is redox. I still don't know what falls under "other" in your classification but I would call redox "other."
