Abstract:

The rate of decomposition of NH3 in Ar was measured between 2000 to 3000 K by following the rate of decrease of NH3 emission intensity in the 2.7 to 3.2 micron wavele gth region. Data indicated that the thermal decomposition of NH3 follows a kinetic law given by dNH3dt kNH3 to the 32 power Ar to the 12 power where k equals 2.5 x 10 to the 13th power e to the -77,700RT power litersmole-sec.
