This is because
If the outer electron is further away from the nucleus than there is a weaker attraction to the
Also there is MORE screening /shielding by inner electrons, so electron is easily lost.

1Relative mole mass = 40g ­ placed it into 1000cm3 of water and have made a 1 mole per dm cubed
of NaOH
Put 40g in 5000cm of water
What is the concentration in moles/dm3
80g in 1000cm so 2moles/dm3
What is the mass of sodium hydroxide is there in…

Don't ionise completely in water ­ weak acids
Aqueous solutions of carboxylic acids have a higher PH than aqueous solutions of strong acids
with the same concentration. ­ This is because the ionising in water of carboxylic acids is
revisable and therefore will be at equilibrium. ­ therefore will have…

Equilibrium- Reactions occur at the same rate in each direction.
Explanation for conditions
The yield of ammonia is only around 15
Ammonia is being produced at the same rate as hydrogen and nitrogen but want to encourage
forwarding reaction more to produce more ammonia
High pressure ­ Increase in pressure…
