On adding NaOH to ammonium sulphate, a colourless gas with pungent odour is evolved which forms a blue coloured complex with Identify the gas.
The reaction of ammonium salts with a base result in the formation of ammonia as a product and hence on adding NaOH to ammonium sulphate, ammonia gas is released. Ammonia when reacted with Cu2+ forms a blue coloured complex. Ammonia donates its lone pair of electrons by acting as a Lewis Base while Cu2+ accepts the lone pair of electrons, being an electrophile.
The chemical reaction for the above mentioned two processes are:

An amorphous solid “A” burns in air to form a gas “B” which turns lime water milky. The gas is also produced as a by-product during roasting of sulphideore. This gas decolourises acidified aqueous KMnO4 solution and reduces Fe3+ to Fe2+. Identify the solid “A” and the gas “B” and write the reactions involved.Chemistry - Exemplar
