    Answer;

    18 g of water

    Explanation;

    H4NO3 - --> N2 + O2 + H2O

    ... 40 g ... 14 g ... 8 g:

    mass NH4NO3 = mass N2 + mass O2 + mass H2O

    40 g = 14 g + 8g + mass H2O

    Solving for mass H2O:

    mass H2O = 40 g - 14 g - 8g = 18 g H2O

    =18 g of water

    18 g of H₂O

    Solution:

    The Balance Chemical Reaction is as follow,

    2 NH₄NO₃ → 2 N₂ + O₂ + 4 H₂O

    According to Equation,

    160 g (2 mole) NH₄NO₃ produces = 72 g (4 moles) of H₂O

    So,

    40 g of NH₄NO₃ will produce = X g of H₂O

    Solving for X,

    X = (40 g * 72 g) : 160 g

    X = 18 g of H₂O
