Lesson: Uses of AmmoniaChemistry
In this lesson, we will learn how to describe the uses of ammonia, balance reaction equations, and calculate the quantities of ammonia involved.
Sample Question Videos
Bleach, an aqueous solution of sodium hypochlorite , is often used alongside ammonia as a cleaning agent. However, it is important that bleach and ammonia are never mixed, as the compounds react to form chloramine .
Give a balanced chemical equation for this reaction.
What is the main hazard associated with the reaction of bleach and ammonia?
What is the main hazard associated with aqueous ammonia solutions?
Ammonia and carbon dioxide are both gaseous at room temperature and pressure. The pure materials are widely used and share a large number of industrial applications. The compounds can form aqueous solutions and react together in water to produce a solid material.
In which of the following ways are molecules of ammonia and carbon dioxide similar?
Which of the following is not an application for which pure ammonia and pure carbon dioxide are both directly useful?
What is the name of the solid material formed when excess ammonia and carbon dioxide react in water?
Write a balanced chemical equation for the reaction of excess ammonia with carbon dioxide in water.
