Does N2 like to be bonded? Light will break that bond readily.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

For the first one, that's a name reaction.

For the second, Albert, does Wolff-Kishner work on amides?  You could also just reduce it with LiAlH4, that will take an amide to an amine.
