Results and Discussion: The identity of an unknown nitrite salt was determined by reacting the salt with sulfamic acid (HSO 3 NH 2 ) in the reaction: MNO 2 (aq) + HSO 3 NH 2 (aq) MHSO 4 (aq) + H 2 O (l) + N 2 (g), where M + is an alkali metal cation (Li + , Na + , K + , or Rb +) and the ideal gas law, PV=nRT, where P is pressure in atmospheres, V is volume in liters, T is temperature in Kelvin, n is the number of moles and R is the universal gas constant. Beaker with water (before reaction): 422.8g Nitrite Salt: 0.445g 70mL distilled water + 25mL sulfamic acid in flask Pressure in lab: 748mmHg = 98.4atm
