Problem 113P

PROBLEM 113P

Shown here are molecular views of two different possible mechanisms by which an automobile airbag might function. One of these mechanisms involves a chemical reaction and the other does not. By looking at the molecular views, can you tell which mechanism operates via a chemical reaction?

When an airbag is detonated, the bag inflates. These figures show two possible ways in which the inflation may happen.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 113P

Here, we are going to identify which of the mechanisms given operates via a chemical reaction.

Air bags are actually inflated by the following chemical reaction:

                        2NaN3 → 2Na + 3N2↑

The nitrogen gas produced in the reaction inflates...
