How to write the chemical formula of ammonia

Dear Student,

Please find below the solution for your asked question-
  • Ammonia is made up of nitrogen and hydrogen elements.
  • The atomic number of Nitrogen is 7 and hydrogen is 1
  • The number of electrons in the outermost shell of nitrogen is 5 and it required 3 electrons to complete its octet.
  • While hydrogen requires 1 more electron to complete its outermost shell.
  • So 1 atom of nitrogen shares its electron with three hydrogen atom via a covalent bond.
