Is manufacturing explosives base or acid?
Its an acid
boric acid can be prepared by treating borax Na 2 B 4 O 7 with H 2 SO 4 or by passing SO 2 through colemanite Ca 2 B 5 O 11
acid and bases are chemicals in drinks.acids are in sour and sharp things.andbases in bitter ones.
first of all your question doesn't make any sense. The difference between acid and bases are the power of hydrogen (pH) or more scientifically their ions. Bases have negative oxides (-OH) and acids have a positive charge and hydrogen ions (+H).
There are three definitions for acids and bases. Arrhenius definition: An acid is a substance that produces hydrogen (H + ) ions in water while a base produces hydroxide (OH - ) ions. Bronsted-Lowry definition: An acid gives up or donates a proton (H+) to another molecule while a base accepts a …proton. Lewis definition: An acid accepts an electron pair in bonding to another molecule/ion while a base donates and electron pair. Note that if a substance meets one of the first two definitions it probably meets the others as well. (MORE)
The Haber Process produces ammonia (NH 3 ) which can serve as the precursor/starting material for the manufacturing of plant fertilizers as well as explosives .
Made by hundreds of different comapanies around the world. Nitric acid is a key ingredient in explosives and fertilizers.
Acids are proton donors in the form of hydrogen ions, while basesare proton acceptors in the form of hydrogen ions. Acids are lessthan 7 on the pH scale, while bases are more than 7.
the base neutrilises the acid. bases in chemistery are none acidic, in fact completely the opposite!
Sulphuric acid is manufactured by CONTACT PROCESS which is a three step process. These are: . Burning of sulphur or sulphide ores in air to generate SO 2 . . Conversion of SO 2 into SO 3 by catalytic oxidation in presence of Vanadium Pentaoxide as catalyst. . Absorption of SO 3 in H 2 SO …4 to give oleum(H 2 S 2 O 7 ). Dilution of oleum gives the desired concentration of sulphuric acid. The sulphuric acid produced by Contact process is upto 96-98% pure. (MORE)
i think we add acid into a base,as we can observe it in the titration process.....
It's an acid, hence the term stomach acid. Gastric acid is a digestive fluid, formed in the stomach . It has a pH of 1-2 and is composed of hydrochloric acid ( HCl ) (around 0.5%, or 5000 parts per million).
Yes, extremely. The yellowish smoke of a high-velocity explosive is mostly H 2 S and H 2 SO 4 .. Before modern percussion fusing confined gasses largely inside brass cartridge casings, the acrid reaction products of artillery could erode bronze, brass and gunmetal artillery vents. Disposable vent l…inings, or bushings, would self-sacrifice to protect the gun itself from the hugely corrosive effects of high explosive.. To this day, even low-residue rifle and pistol ammunition can fatally erode a barrel in just a few sessions of missed cleaning. (MORE)
A base would be a bitter substance a lot of substances we eat and drink are acids & bases, but the reason why its not bitter is because of sugar & salt.. An acid is a sour substance a lot of food & drinks are acids but, the reason why we can't taste the sour is because of sugar & salt.
when acid and base is mixed together it creates a poisinous gas and can kill you. other low acids like lemon lemonade coffee does not do anything when mixed only ammonia,bleach, exc. can harm because thoose are very very powerful.
The sulphuric acid (H 2 SO 4 ) contains H + ions hence they are classified as acids. Those contains OH - are calssified as bases
\nIt is an Acid, and when concentrated, around 97%, as in batteries, has a pH under 1, (very strong) which can vary depening on the solution. As the name tells, it is an acid
An Acid is a substance that tastes sour and Base is a substance that tastes bitter and feels slippery.
Almost all liquids will have either acidic or basic traits although some substances are neutral. An acid, when placed in water will ionize into positive hydrogen ions (H+). This H+ ion is a proton. A base, when placed in water will ionize into negative hydroxide ions (OH-). A strong acid/base is one… that ionizes 100% when placed in water. Weak acids/bases only ionize partially when placed in water. Water must normally be present for a substance to be an acid or a base. A base has an excess of H+ ions while an acid has an excess of OH- ions. If the substance has an equal amount of positive and negative ions, the substance is neutral. Distilled water is an example of this. An acid is a proton donor. A base is a proton acceptor. So, when a substance dissolves in water it produces a substance which is either acidic if it has and excess of positive hydrogen ions (H+), basic if it has an excess of negative hydroxide ions (OH-) or neutral if the amount of H+ and OH- ions are equal. H + + OH - --> Water (water is neutral if it's distilled) Most acids and bases dissolve in water and they are also corrosive. The bases that do dissolve in water are called alkalis. (MORE)
Probably Hydro sulfuric acid in car batteries and science experiments, and carbonic acid in soda.
Only if you add in another chemical. The process is really easy. Get some aluminum tin foil (or even pop rocks) Scrunch a lot of small bits of it up and put it in a bottle. Pour in a 1/4 of the bottle with HCl. Screw on cap and then run away. Remember safety first. Glasses and gloves at all ti…mes. (MORE)
The number of replaceable hydroxyl (OH - ) Ions in a base is called the acidity of that base.
It is usually straight-forward. If the chemical has acid in it, then it is an acid. So, citric acid, is an acid.
"Acid" refers to anything that doesn't have a pH balance of "7" (neutral). Acids are found naturally in many foods already, such as tomatoes and oranges, and are actually important for your body. So, besides the taste factor (Lemonade, for example, wouldn't taste lemony at all if it wasn't acidic),… manufacturers may add acids to food as a preservative. Bacteria has a harder time growing in something that is more acidic. (MORE)
What type of explosive agent is the most important raw material in the manufacturing of industrial explosives?
At one time it was nitroglycerin- now it is probably ammonium nitrate, but RDX, HMX and TNT are also widely used.
Amino acids are organic molecules which proteins are build from. There are twenty. However there is two amino acids which are acidic: Aspartic acid and glutamic acid.
You have a couple of them at home. Citric acid in your lemon and orange. Hydrochloric/sulfuric acid in your drain cleaners. Lye (sodium hydroxide) in drain cleaners. Acetic acid in vinegar.
The clue is in the name, Stomach acid is an acid. It is Hydrochloric Acid with a pH of 2
it turns out that sulphuric acid is shiped around in little specially modified glass-like containers. This acid has a lot of harsh chemicals that when in contact with human ( in any way ) would result in serious illness. Therefore, the glass-like containers were modified so that when manufactured th…ere is most likely no chance that a person woulld get harmed. (MORE)
There's no such thing as a base of an acid! A base is a substance with a pH of 8-14, and an acid is a base with a pH of 0-6. A neutral substance has a pH of 7.
If the substance produces Hydrogen ions when it is dissolved in water, then it is an acid. If it produces Hydroxide ions when it is dissolved in water, then it is a base.
Potentially, yes. Hydrochloric acid will react with most gases to produce hydrogen gas. Hydrogen is extremely flammable and can be very explosive if mixed with oxygen and heated.
They are not. They never were, and they never will be. Now cry little college student, cry.
Companies operated numerous small plants to ensure that their entire business would not be wiped out in the event of an explosion
It depends on the acid. Organic acids can be manufactured through oxidation or carbonylation of other organic compounds. Sulfuric acid is produce by reacting sulfur dioxide with ozone and water. Hydrochloric acid can be produce by reacting chlorine gas with either hydrogen or with hydrocarbons.
A concentrated sulfuric acid and a concentrated nitric acid are both used in production of a nitroglycerine , which is an active ingredient of a dynamite.
All acids(pH -7) can be neutralized by a base(pH 7+) to form hydrogen molecules or become neutral (pH:7) Acid does not have a specific base.
yes firemen interviewed said so there is a video of New York Firemen saying so on the internet which is 100% proof it was said.
Acids and bases neutralize each other. This is pretty obvious, as you probably know an acid donates H+ ions, while bases accepted them. An reaction between an acid and base would produce the salt of the two. Sulfuric acid produces sulfate salts, nitric acid produces nitrite salts, hydrochloric aci…d produces chloride salts, etc. The salt is not alkaline nor acidic, just neutral. (MORE)
to revent it from rancidity Usually as a flavouring or preservative. e.g. Pickled Onions are preserved in vinegar (an acid) the vinegar also adds flavour to the onions.
Simply put, an acid donates protons ( H + ) to solutions and bases accept protons in solutions.
An acid base indicator is a substance that changes colour due the PH of the medium in which it is dissolved.
An acid is a sour substance which has Hydrogen (H^+) ions in it. A base on the other hand is bitter and has Hydroxide (OH^-) ions in it.
No. Sulpuhric acid may be used in a chemical reaction with other things to MAKE explosives, but explosives do not contain sulphuric acid.
An acid, according to the Related Link on the bottom, it has a pH of 0 which is acidic
Explosion proof refrigerators are manufactured encased in steel. Their cabinet interiors are sparkproof with a non sparking magnetic door gasket with foam in place.
Yes. When bases are dissociated in water an anion is formed with the formation of a conjugate acid.
An acid is a substance that readily accepts electron pairs or that readily gives up protons. When mixed with water, the solution has a pH lower than that of the water itself. A base is a substance that readily gives up electron pairs or that readily accepts protons. When mixed with water, the sol…ution has a pH higher than that of the water itself. (MORE)
acid is a substance which can give (H+) ion is called acid and baseis a substance which can give (H-) ion is call base
It's in the name... it's an acid. It's the acid that give vinegarit's taste and smell.
It is an acid (hence the name). It has a pH of 2.92, which isacidic
