The Type Of Equation That Causes An Airbag To Inflate Is Decomposition.

Compound that causes reaction | NAN3 (Sodium Azide)

Substances Produced

Nitrogen Gas(N2), potassium oxide(K2O), sodium oxide(Na2O) & Silicate Gass(SiO2).

Where Does The Energy Source Come From That Starts the Reaction?

The airbag system ignites the solid propellant, which burns rapidly to create a large volume of gas to inflate the Airbag
