Chemguide: Support for CIE A level Chemistry
Learning outcome 13.1(c)
This statement is about the uses of ammonia, and other nitrogen containing compounds produced from it.
Before you go on, you should find and read the statement in your copy of the syllabus.
This is seriously boring stuff, and you probably already know enough from work you did before you started to do A level chemistry.
Uses of ammonia
Uses of nitric acid
I suspect you would be safe if you just learnt that both ammonia and nitric acid are used in the manufacture of fertilisers; that ammonia is also used to make nitric acid; and that nitric acid is also used to make explosives.
