Making Ammonia

Nitrogen + Hydrogen =(reversible) Ammonia

N2 + 3H2 = 2NH3

Used for fertiliser

Process of production

Nitrgoen comes from the air

Hydrogen comes from methane CH4 - a natural gas

Placed into a reaction vessel

You condense the ammonia to liquify the ammonia

To increase the rate of reaction

An iron catalyst is used

It is heated at 450 degrees - it…
