Problem 53

Air bags are activated when a severe impact causes a steel ballto compress a spring and electrically ignite a detonator cap. Thiscauses sodium azide (NaN3) to decompose explosively accordingto the following reaction:What mass of NaN3(s) must be reacted to inflate an air bag to70.0 L at STP?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Week of 3/28-4/1 We already know e- occupy atomic orbitals with no fixed boundaries. We already know about the three atomic numbers and what they mean: 3 (energy level), 0 (shape), 0 (orientation), = 3s orbital. There’s another important number we need to include now though, the spin (m ). It san either spin clockwise (+1/2) or counter-clockwise (-1/2). When making an electron configuration diagram, these are represented as arrows, either ↑ for clockwise or ↓ for counter clockwise. A Ground State Electron Configuration Diagram shows the arrangement of electrons in their orbitals for an atom in its most stable (ground) state. In this diagram, the orbitals are displayed with boxes nd in the boxes have the arrows, with a MAX of 2 e- per box. Aufbau Principle: e- built up into orbita
