2. Ammonium nitrate is used in some “instant” cold packs because the salt absorbs 25.7 kJ per mole as it dissolves (ionizes). Write the balanced chemical equation. Is dissolving ammonium nitrate an exothermic or endothermic process? Write the amount of heat absorbed as either a product or reactant in the balanced equation. Draw an enthalpy diagram for this process.
