The thermal decomposition of ammonia was studied by means of the shock‐tube and vacuum ultraviolet absorption spectroscopy monitoring the concentration of atomic hydrogen. The rate constants of both the initiation reaction (Formula Presented.) and the consecutive reaction (Formula Presented.) were determined directly as (Formula Presented.) and (Formula Presented.) respectively.
