Chem 101 Discussion Board for Science Salon Fireworks on Ice Here’s the (unbalanced) reaction from today (Thanks Brandon!): ice Zn(s) + NH 4 NO 3 (s) --------> N 2 (g) + ZnO(s) + H 2 O(g) + energy 1. Balance it. 2. Is it a redox reaction? If it is, what is being oxidized and what is being reduced? How do you know? 3. It turns out that another reaction happens first. What kind of reaction is this: combination, decomposition, single-replacement, or double-replacement?

Unformatted text preview: ice NH 4 NO 3 (s) --------> N 2 O(g) + 2 H 2 O(g) + energy 4. So, how do you think the ice starts the reaction? And how do you think the first reaction affects the second reaction? 5. N 2 O is nitrous oxide or laughing gas. How many N 2 O molecules were formed if 2.5 x 10 23 molecules of NH 4 NO 3 reacted? (Start practicing for Friday!) Would that explain why Brandon was laughing at the end?...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
