Nitrogen makes up around four-fifths of the Earth's atmosphere, and it was isolated and identified as a distinct substance during early air research. Carl Wilhelm Scheele, a Swedish chemist, demonstrated in 1772 that air is a mixture of two gases, one of which he dubbed "fire air" because it promoted combustion, and the other "foul air" because it remained after the "fire air" had been consumed. Of course, the "fire air" was oxygen, while the "foul air" was nitrogen.
What is Nitrogen?
Nitrogen gas is a colourless, odourless gas that makes up around four-fifths of the atmosphere's volume and is found in mixed form in animal and vegetable cells, particularly proteins. Nitrogen is the member of the 15th group of the modern periodic table. Some basic information about Nitrogen are as follows-
The symbol of Nitrogen is N. Nitrogen is found as Nitrogen gas in nature and the symbol of nitrogen gas is N2.
Nitrogen is the seventh element in the periodic table, located between carbon and oxygen.
Electronic configuration of nitrogen is[H e] [He] 2s22p3.
It's a crucial component of amino acids.
Nitrogen gas makes up around 80% of the Earth's atmosphere.
It is predominantly diatomic non-metal gas, which is odourless and colourless in nature.
Most of its compounds are trivalent because its outer shell has five electrons.
It can be found in all living tissues. It is a necessary component of life because it is a component of DNA and a part of the genetic code.
It can be found in soil and water as nitrates and nitrites.
All of these elements are linked and part of the nitrogen cycle. As a result of reactions in the nitrogen cycle, industrial enterprises emit a lot of nitrogen, which increases the amount of nitrite and nitrate in the ground and water.
Nitrogen as Nitrogen Gas
As we had seen the electronic configuration of nitrogen gas in the previous section, we can say that nitrogen has 3 electrons in its outermost orbit. The outermost orbit is p and it requires 6 electrons to fill completely. Now when we see that the outer p-orbit is half-filled that is comparatively stable than other configurations. Due to this half-filled configuration, nitrogen has a valency of 3. So it can accept three electrons. That’s why in nature nitrogen is found as nitrogen gas as two nitrogen atoms come together to form a molecule that is more stable than an atom. Both nitrogen atoms contribute their 3 outer shell electrons to form covalent bonds. A triple bond binds both nitrogen atoms as a molecule of nitrogen gas.
