We are asked to calculate the mass percent composition of nitrogen in NH4NO3.
Molar mass N = 14.01 g/mol
Molar mass NH4NO3= 14.01 g/mol
Most fertilizers consist of nitrogen-containing compounds such as NH3, CO(NH2 )2, NH4 NO3, and (NH4 )2 SO4. Plants use the nitrogen content in these compounds for protein synthesis.
Calculate the mass percent composition of nitrogen in NH4 NO3.
