## anonymous 5 years ago can anyone give some examples of decomposition reaction?

1. anonymous

Electrolysis of water: $2H_{2}O(l)\rightarrow 2H_{2}(g)+O_{2}(g)$

2. anonymous

hydrogen peroxide decomposes to water and oxygen $2H _{2}O _{2} \rightarrow 2H _{2} O + O _{2}$

3. anonymous

2 NaN3 → 2 Na + 3 N2 interesting one, the reaction which occurs in most airbag primers, sodium azide

a decomposition reaction is a chemical reaction in which a reactant is broken down into 2 or more products. For example: H2O(l) breaks down into H2 (g) and O2(g).
