Textbook Problem

A major use of hydrazine, N2H4, is in steam boilers in power plants.

(a) The reaction of hydrazine with O2 dissolved in water gives N2 and water. Write a balanced equation for this reaction.

(b) O2 dissolves in water to the extent of 0.0044 g in 100. mL of water at 20°C. What mass of N2H4 is needed to consume all of the dissolved O2 in 3.00 × 104 L of water (enough to fill a small swimming pool)?

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The balanced equation has to be given for the reaction of hydrazine with O2 dissolved in water.

Concept Introduction: Hydrazine is a colorless liquid and is produced by oxidation of ammonia. Hydrazine is a base and is a strong reducing agent.

It is used in treating waste water from chemical plants. It is also used to remove dissolved oxygen in water in electric generating plants. Hydrazine acts as a reducing agent and reduces the amount of dissolved oxygen. Otherwise, this dissolved oxygen can corrode the metals of pipes used in the plants.

Balanced chemical equation of a reaction is written according to law of conservation of mass.

Explanation

The formula for hydrazine is N2H4. It is a reducing agent and is used to reduce dissolved oxygen in water in electric generating plants. Otherwise, this dissolved oxygen can corrode the metals of pipes used in the plants. The balanced chemical equation is:

    N2H4(aq)+O2(g<

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: It should be calculated that the mass of N2H4 needed to consume all of the dissolved oxygen in 3×104 L of water.
