How much heat is released when a mixture containing 10.0 g NH3 and 20.0 g O2 reacts by the following equation?

4 NH 3 ( g ) + 5 O 2 ( g ) 4 NO ( g ) + 6 H 2 O ( g ) ; Δ H ° = 906 kJ

Interpretation Introduction


Amount of heat released when mixture having 10g  Ammonia and 20g Oxygen reacted has to be determined.

Explanation of Solution


For given reaction ΔH° = -906 kJ

Amount of ammonia in a mixture = 10g

Amount of Oxygen in a mixture = 20g

Given reaction is,4NH3(g) + 5O2(g)4NO(g) + 6H2O(g);ΔH° = -906 kJ

First we have to calculate the limiting reactant by calculating the moles of ammonia and Oxygen. After assuming that one of the reactant is entirely consumed, determine the moles of the other reactant required for the reaction.

  10.0 g NH3×1mol NH317.03g NH3= 0.5872 mol NH3    20
