Nitroglycerin (C3H5N3O9) can decompose and is represented by the following reaction:
C3H5N3O9 6N2 + CO2 + H2O + O2
1. What coefficients balance the reaction?
2. How much nitrogen (in grams) forms when 500g of nitroglycerin decomposes?
3. How much nitroglycerin (in grams) decomposes if 325g CO2 forms?
4. How many molecules of water forms when 200g of nitroglycerin decomposes?
5. How much carbon dioxide forms (in grams) when 1000g of nitroglycerin decomposes?
balanced chemical equation
1) 4 C3H5N3O9 --> 12 CO2 + H20 + 6 N2 + 6 O2
2) 92.47 g N2 (see attachment)
3) Answer: 558g of nitroglycerin
39.65 g of wáter
