Balancing chemical equation
« on: February 19, 2008, 09:25:30 PM »


(CH3)2NNH2 + O2 => 2CO2 + 4H2O + 1N2

2+4+1 = 7 moles of gas

I don't know what I am doing wrong. Can someone help me? Thanks

O2 isn't the oxidant.
Knowing why you got a question wrong is better than knowing that you got a question right.

I gotta say, if you'd typed out the question instead of scanning and dumping the image on this board, you might have caught it sooner. ;)
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.
