Nitrogen is obtained from the air
by fractional distillation
Hydrogen is obtained from the
methane that reacts with steam
Forward reaction is exothermic.
Entropy decreases because
there are more moles of gas on

An iron catalyst is used in this reaction.
It lowers the activation energy and speeds up
the reaction so equilibrium can be achieved
No effect on position of equilibrium or the yield
of ammonia.…read more
