Uses of NitrogenAmmoniaAmmonia is probably the most known use of nitrogen. It is used for feeding plants the nitrogen they need to RefridgerantNitrogen is also used for freezing food and many other paraphernalia such as vital organs and blood.ExplosivesMany of the nitrogen compounds are used for explosives. When the chemical breaks up it releases a big energy, which is also known as an explosion. Oil IndustriesOil industries often use high pressure nitrogen to pull up oil to the surface.
