Liquidized hydrazine, N2H4, and liquid 1, 1-dimethylhydrazine, N2H2(CH3)2, both react spontaneously with O2 and can be used as rocket fuel.
Reaction A: N2H4(l) + O2(g) = N2(g) + 2H20(l)
Reaction B: N2H2(CH3)2(l) + 4O2(g) = N2(g) + 4H2O(l) + 2CO2(g)
a. Use the given information to calculate deltaHrxn for reactions A and B. Please show your work.
