Haber Process

Haber Process conditions


200 Atmospheres

450 degrees centigrade

catalyst - iron(speeds up reaction but does does not effect the position of equilibrium)

1 of 2

Explanation

200atm is used because it increases the yield of the reaction and so more products are produced but it is also not too expensive

Forward reaction is exothermic so increasing the temperature promotes the reaction the wrong way

However using a lower temp. means a slower rate of reaction( less collisions, less energy etc.)
