Correct: ammonium salts on heating decompose to give ammonia

Dear student,

Yes, we can obtain NH3 on the decomposition of ammonium salts
for eg.
NH4Cl ----> NH3+HCl
But that's also true not all ammonium salts decompose to give ammonia gas, eg. NH4NO3.

In nutshell,  ammonium salts on heating decompose to give ammonia but not every time (exceptions exists)

yes when we decompose any compound containing nh4 it gives us nh3 ie. ammonia.

for eg.
NH4Cl= NH3+HCl

Most of the ammonium salt produce ammonia on decomposition . But not always-Example NH4NO3
