    Exercise 1: Ammonia NH3

    NH3 ammonia is a gas injected into cultivated land to improve the development of green plants and help increase crop production. It is used in refrigeration systems, but any leak in the pipes of these appliances releases ammonia into the air, which irritates the eyes and causes poisoning.
