You are a Chemical engineer, trying to synthesize N2H4(l). Your boss suggests that you try to synthesis it from the elements, nitrogen and hydrogen, at 25 celsius and 1.0 atm (since this would be a cheap way of doing it). Write a short note to sent to your boss which discusses this approach, and either shows her the best way to design this approach, or shows that it is not a good way to do this synthesis and you should try other approach.

-really need help on how to approach this problem

  • Science -

    I don't know where you are in chemistry but I would start by looking up delta Go for N2H4(l) and go from there. My text lists 149 kJ/mol which is highly endothermic.
