Please help with Chemistry?

I am completely lost on these four questions. Please help!

1)Automotive air bags inflate when sodium azide decomposes explosively to its constituent elements. ( 2 NaN3 -> 2 Na + 3 N2 ). How many moles of N2 are produced by the decomposition of 2.88 mol of sodium azide?

How many liters of N2 are produced at STP?

2)3)Suppose you have a solution that might contain any or all of the following cations: Mn^2+, Ag^+, and Sr^2+ . Addition of HCl causes a precipitate to form. H2SO4 was added to the filtrate and another precipitate was obtained. This is filtered off and NaOH is added to the filtrate. No precipitate is obtained.

a)which ions are present and why?

b)which ions must be absent from the original solution?

3) A 0.0989 g sample of an alcohol is burnt in oxygen to yield 0.2160 g CO2 and 0.1194 g H2O. Calculate the mass percentage of C, H and O in the compound.

4)What happens when an aqueous solution of NiCl2 is added to zinc metal? Write an equation for the reaction and explain your answer.

    2 NaN3 → 2 Na + 3 N2

    (2.88 mol NaN3) x (3/2) = 4.32 mol N2

    (4.32 mol N2) x (22.414 L/mol) = 96.8 L N2

    When you consider in regards to the traits found in a real "soul mate" relationship, what one phrase comes up most by and large on the highest of your list? Is it Chemistry? Typically. It's normally described as a feeling that leaves you breathless, excited and weak in the knees. Fingers sweat, the guts races and the physique tingles with worried anticipation. The conclusion most would-be fanatics come to is that in the event that they experience these extreme emotions in the direction of any one, they've the foundation for an ideal and lasting relationship. Proper? Maybe no longer. For this definition of chemistry is confined to at least one's bodily response to a further person. It lacks an whole dimension that resides in our values, beliefs, personalities and worldview. With a view to comprehend you have got the right reference to a skills (or present) accomplice, it is predominant to have a normal skills of what real chemistry contains, that surround it. This may also be elaborate to do. This intense, physical ardour is the stuff that Oscar winning movies and nice-selling books are made from. So, take a step back for a minute and see when you admire your self. :-)
