a) (i) • Sulphur dioxide from the factory
5 • Toxic waste from the factory
(ii) • Sulphur dioxide combine with rain water to produce
acid rain.
• Acid rain causes lakes and rivers to be acidic which causes
fish and other aquatic organisms to die.
(iii) toxic waste caused fishes and aquatic organisms died.

1 Nitrogen gas and hydrogen gas

4 Colourless,

Activity No. Answer

5 i) (a) (NH4)3PO4
(b) NH4NO3
(c ) (NH4)2SO4

(ii) (NH4)3PO4
3(14) / 3(14) + 12(1) + 31 + 4(16) x 100 = 28.19%

2(14) / 14 + 4(1) + 14 + 3(16) x 100 = 35.00%

2(14) / 2(14) + 8(1) + 32 + 4(16) x 100 = 21.21%

ii) Ammonium nitrate
Percentage of nitrogen is the highest.
