Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Nitric Acid HNO3 Proper Disposal Of Nitric Acid Nitric acid is a highly toxic and corrosive acid that has an important role in a plethora of industries such as plastics manufacturing, textile and fertilizing industries. "Aqua fortis" and "aqua valens" are additional terminologies for nitric acid, meaning "strong water" and "spirit of fire," respectively. Being such a powerful chemical, nitric acid must be disposed of in a proper manner.Read more : 468_dispose-nitric-acid.html How to correctly make Nitric Acid Chemically, nitric acid is made by bubbling nitrogen dioxide into water. So the objective in this approach is to generate nitrogen dioxide. This can be done by reacting hydrochloric acid, a nitrate salt and copper. Around 80grams of sodium nitrate, over 30 grams of copper and 100mL of hydrochloric acid are the quantities needed. The exact amount is not critical. For useable concentrations, the amount of water being converted should be small, around 20-50mL. Nitric Acid Uses At Home Nitric acid is an oxidising mineral acid with physical and chemical properties that make it one of the most useful inorganic minerals. Nitric acid is used in a wide range of industries the most common of which are the production of explosives, nitrogen fertilisers and dyestuffs. How Nitric Acid Benefits The Enviroment Nitric acid is considered to be a strong acid and oxidant. As can be seen in the picture shown above, nitric acid is particularly aggressive to most metals, and even more so with copper. While the green soluble copper nitrate spreads away fro the reacting site, the deep red-brown nitrogen dioxide gas that is freed according to the following equation: Extremely Corrosive 3D Model 2D Model Jesse William Apps
