NH3 + O2 = NO + H2O

Balanced Chemical Equation – Solution

4NH3 + 5O2 → 4NO + 6H2O

The coefficients show the number of particles (atoms or molecules), and the indices show the number of atoms that make up the molecule. New substances are formed as a result of the rearrangement of the original atoms. As a result of a chemical reaction, atoms of chemical elements do not disappear anywhere and new ones do not appear, their number remains unchanged – this follows from the law of conservation of mass of substances.

Chemical Reaction Information

Ammonia + Dioxygen = Nitric Oxide (Radical) + Water

This is an oxidation-reduction (redox) reaction. NH3 is a reducing agent, O2 is an oxidizing agent.

  • 4 N-III  20 e  4 NII (oxidation)
  • 10 O0 + 20 e  10 O-II (reduction)
