    2NH3 + NaOCl -> N2H4 + NaCl + H2O

    Damn... it didn't copy right.. anyway all the numbers are supposed to be subscripts appart from the 2 in front of Ammonia.

    What mass of ammonica is needed to make 64g of hydrazine (N2H4)
    H = 1 and N = 14

    I got 17g.. it seems wrong to me, can you help please??
    Thanks!

    Moles of N2H4 = mass/ Mr = 64/(14*2 + 3) = 2 moles

    Since the mole ratio of NH3 : N2H4 is 2 : 1
    4 moles of NH3 would be required to form 2 moles of N2H4.

    Mass of NH3 = moles * Mr = 4 * (14+3) = 68g

    12st work out MR of the hydrazine: which is 32. Moles is equal to mass divided by Mr. thereforenumber of moles is 2. Moles ratio is 2:1 therfore you ahve a total of 4 moles of ammonia. Mr of ammonia is 17. times by 4 gives 68g.

    someone bet me to it! lol!

    Yay I've got it now. I'd got the ratio right but put it as 1 mole instead of 4 somehow =/ I'm not thinking straight. haha. Thanks for your help!
