Ammonium chloride mist

Equipment

Beaker (100 ml) or test tube.

Chemicals

Conc. Ammonia water (C), conc. Hydrochloric acid (C).

How-to

Put on protective goggles. Keep both substances away from the body.

For better contrast, it is recommended to use a dark (black) background. When ready, open both bottles and hold them close to each other.

We can also drop a little ammonia and a little hydrochloric acid onto a filter paper each and then bring both sheets together in front of the dark blackboard.

Result

A dense, white mist of ammonium chloride is formed.

NH3 + HCl -> NH4Cl + Energy
