If solid Lead (II) Oxide reacts with Ammonia gas (Nitrogen Trihydride) the resulting products are Lead Metal, Nitrogen gas, and water vapor. What type of reaction is this?

    Well let's start with an equation PbO(s) + NH3(g) -->Pb(s) + N2(g) + H2O(g) Balancing we get 3PbO(s) + 2NH3(g) --> 3Pb(s) + N2(g) + 3H2O(g)

    Types of reactions include: Combination or synthesis A + B ----> AB Decomposition AB ----> A + B Substitution or Single Replacement A + BC ----> B + AC Metathesis or Double Displacement AB + CD ----> AD + CB

    Does double displacement make sense...Can it be endothermic?

    to me that reaction doesn't look like double replacement

    In double displacement they switch places as I've shown above so I agree with @Photon336 with it not looking like a double displacement

    yeah you explained it nicely, is it possible for a double replacement to be endothermic? I guess you can't really tell just by looking at the reaction, you would need the bond energies or enthalpy of reaction or something i guess.

    You would have to look at the enthalpies of the products and the reactants in order to determine exoteric or endothermic
