What is the cation with the correct charge for lithium bromide?

If we look at the ionic compound consisting of lithium ions and bromide ions, we see that the lithium ion has a 1+ charge and the bromide ion has a 1− charge. Only one ion of each is needed to balance these charges….Polyatomic Ions.

Ion Name Ion Formula
phosphate ion PO4−3
phosphite ion PO3−3

How do you write lithium bromide?

The molecular or chemical formula of Lithium Bromide is LiBr. Lithium Monobromide is synthesized by treating lithium carbonate (Li2CO3) with hydrobromic acid (HBr).

What is lithium bromide used for?

Lithium bromide is an extremely hygroscopic chemical commonly used in absorption chillers, where water is the refrigerant. Because of its high affinity to water, LiBr can easily absorb excess vapor, making the system an environmentally friendly non-CFC alternative.

Why is nitric oxide bad for the environment?

High levels of NOx can have a negative effect on vegetation, including leaf damage and reduced growth. It can make vegetation more susceptible to disease and frost damage. NOx also reacts with other pollutants in the presence of sunlight to form ozone which can damage vegetation at high concentrations.

How nitrogen oxides are produced?

Nitrogen oxides are produced from the reaction of nitrogen and oxygen gases in the air during combustion, especially at high temperatures. At normal temperatures, oxygen and nitrogen gases do not react together. The combustion of gasoline in automobiles emit nitrogen oxides into the atmosphere (mobile source).

Why are nitrous oxide bad for the environment?

Nitrous oxide also poses a second threat: while in the stratosphere, nitrous oxide is exposed to sunlight and oxygen which converts the gas into nitrogen oxides. Nitrogen oxides can damage the ozone layer, which humans rely on to prevent most of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation from reaching earth’s surface.

Is Nitrous the same as nitrogen?

The term ‘nitrogen oxides’ (NOx) is usually used to include two gases-nitric oxide (NO), which is a colourless, odourless gas and nitrogen dioxide (NO2), which is a reddish-brown gas with a pungent odour. Other oxides of nitrogen include NO3 (nitrogen trioxide), N2O (nitrous oxide), N2O4 and N2O5.

Can plants use nitrous oxide?

Plants can produce and emit nitrous oxide (N2O), a potent greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere, and several field-based studies have concluded that this gas is emitted at substantial amounts. Several studies have hypothesised that plants might act as a medium to transport N2O produced by soil-inhabiting microorganisms.

How do cars reduce nitrous oxide emissions?

One solution is the use of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) in order to reduce NOx. Some of the exhaust gases are cooled and fed back into the engine to achieve a combustion with less NOx formation. This results in lower NOx emissions. The reduction of particulate emissions is achieved by high injection pressure.
