Additional Questions Ammonia Dalal Simplified ICSE
State why nitrogenous matter produces ammonia. State a liquid source of ammonia.
When nitrogenous matter (such as animal and vegetable protiens) decays in the absence of air, the putrefying bacteria on the organic matter in the soil or ammonifying bacteria in organic matter produces ammonia.
The liquid souce of ammonia is decaying urine of animals.
Give the word equation and balanced molecular equation for the laboratory preparation of ammonia from NH4Cl and calcium hydroxide.
Ammonium Chloride + Calcium Hydroxide → Calcium Chloride + Water + Ammonia
Convert ammonium sulphate to ammonia using two different alkalis.
State why ammonia is not obtained in the laboratory from NH4NO3 and NaOH.
Ammonium nitrate on heating decomposes explosively with the formation of nitrous oxide and water.
State the method used with reasons for drying and collecting ammonia gas.
Calcium oxide (quick lime) is used for drying ammonia. It is because, calcium oxide being basic in nature does not react chemically with ammonia.
CaO + H2O → Ca(OH)2
Chemicals such as CaCl2 (anhydrous), P2O5 and cone H2SO4 are not used for drying ammonia, because they react chemically with it as shown in the equation below :
Ammonia is collected by downward displacement of air. Ammonia gas is highly soluble in water, as such it cannot be collected over water. Further, ammonia is lighter than air. As such ammonia is collected by downward displacement of air.
State how you would convert (i) Mg (ii) Ca (iii) Al – to ammonia.
Give a balanced equation with all conditions to obtain NH3 from N2 and H2.
Conditions for maximum yield of ammonia :
- Pressure : 200-900°C (High pressure)
- Temperature : 450-500°C (Optimum temperature)
- Catalyst : Finely divided iron, Fe
- Promotor : Molybdenum, Mo
State two physical properties of NH3 which enable separation of NH3 from a mixture of NH3, N2 and H2.
- Ammonia liquifies at a pressure 8 atmosphere at -33°C, but not hydrogen and nitrogen.
- Ammonia is extremely soluble in water, but not hydrogen and nitrogen.
Compare the density of ammonia with that of air. Name two gases lighter than ammonia.
The vapour density of ammonia is 8.5 and that of air is 14.4. The two gases lighter than ammonia are
‘Ammonia is highly soluble in water’. Name two other gases showing similar solubility.
The other highly soluble gases in water are :
- Hydrogen chloride
- Sulphur trioxide.
Name the experiment and state its procedure to demonstrate the high solubility of ammonia.
Highly solubility of ammonia can be shown by Fountain Experiment.
To demonstrate the high solubility of ammonia gas in water.
- Round bottomed flask filled with ammonia gas.
- Mouth of the flask with a rubber stopper with two holes, one for jet tube and other for dropper containing water.
- Trough below contains red litmus solution.
- The dropper containing water is squeezed and few drops of water enters the flask.
- Ammonia gas present in the flask gets dissolved in water due to its high solubility, which creates a partial vacuum in the flask.
- Since outside pressure is higher, so red litmus solution rush up the jet tube and emerge as a fountain. (Ammonia gas being basic changed red litmus blue.)
Ammonia gas is lighter than air, hence it is collected by downward displacement of air.
- Easily liquified at low temperatures.
- Liquid ammonia boils at – 33.5°C
- Solid ammonia melts at – 77.5°C
Give an equation for the burning of ammonia in oxygen. State the observation seen.
Ammonia bums in the atmosphere of oxygen with a pale blue flame, forming nitrogen gas and water vapour.
Convert ammonia to nitric oxide by catalytic oxidation of ammonia. State all conditions.
When a mixture of 2 (vols.) of oxygen and l(vols.) of ammonia is passed over platinum gauze maintained at 800°C, it reacts to form nitric oxide and water vapour.
- Conditions for the reaction : Ostwald’s process
- Temperature : 800°C
- Catalyst : Platinum (Pt)
Draw a simple diagram for the catalytic oxidation of ammonia in the laboratory.
Give reasons for the observation seen during catalytic oxidation of ammonia.
The colourless nitric oxide formed undergoes further oxidation to give reddish brown vapours of nitrogen oxide.
The platinum(catalyst) continues to emit a reddish glow even after the heating is discontinued since the catalytic oxidation of ammonia is an exothermic reaction.
Name an industrial process which involves ammonia, oxygen and a catalyst as its starting reactants.
The industrial process is called Ostwald’s process for preparing nitric acid.
State what an aqueous solution of NH3 is called. State how it is prepared giving reasons.
The aqueous solution of ammonia is chemically ammonium hydroxide(NH4OH) (Liquor Ammonia).
It is prepared by connecting the delivery tube of the apparatus generating ammonia with an inverted funnel whose rim is just dipping in water contained in beaker.
This arrangement provides
- large surface area for the absorption of ammonia and
- prevents back suction
NH3 + H2O → NH4 OH
State why an aq. soln. of NH3
- turns red litmus blue
- is a weak base and a weak electrolyte.
- Ammonia on dissolving in water furnishes ammonium (NH4+) ions and hydroxyl (OH–) ions.
The presence of OH– turns the red litmus blue.
2 When ammonia dissolves in water, it forms ammonium hydroxide. The ammonium hydroxide dissociates to NH4+ ions and OH– ions.
However, the degree of dissociation of ammonium hydroxide molecules is very low. Thus, due to the presence of few OH- ions it is a weak base, as well as weak electrolyte.
State two different methods of preparing NH4Cl using hydrochloric acid.
- When ammonium hydroxide is treated with hydrochloric acid, neutrilisation reaction takes place with formation of Ammonium chloride
NH4OH + HCl (dil.) → NH4Cl + H2O
- When ammounium carbonate is treated with hydrochloric acid, it forms ammonium chloride, carbon dioxide and water.
(NH4)2 CO3 + 2HCl (dil.) → 2NH4Cl + CO2 + H2O
Convert (i) ammonia (ii) ammonium hydroxide to an ammonium salt using (a) HNO3 (b) H2SO4.
