A promising new material with great potential as a fuel in solid rocket motors is ammonium dinitramide [NH4N(NO2)2].
a. Draw Lewis structures (including resonance forms) for the dinitramide ion [N(NO2)2-].
b. Predict the bond angles around each nitrogen in the dinitramide ion.
c. Ammonium dinitramide can decompose explosively to nitrogen, water, and oxygen. Write a balanced equation for this reaction, and use bond energies to estimate DH for the explosive decomposition of this compound.
d. To estimate ΔH from bond energies, you made several assumptions. What are some of your assumptions?
