Haber Process

HideShow resource information
What does the Haber Process produce?
Ammonia
1 of 11
Name two products that can be used with Ammonia?
Fertiliser and Explosives
2 of 11
Why is the Ammonia taken out of the process?
So it doesn't reach dynamic equilibrium
3 of 11
Where does the reactants come from?
Nitrogen from Air and Methane/Natural Gas from Crude Oil
4 of 11
How is the process sustainable?
Reuse any waste and put it back in the reactor
5 of 11
How is it a compromise with it's temperature?
Low temp, better yield but it's a slow reaction
6 of 11
How is it s compromise with it's pressure?
High Pressure makes a lot of yield but it's dangerous and expensive
7 of 11
What is the reaction for the Haber Process?
N2 + 3N2 (reverse sign) 2NH3
8 of 11
What is the Exothermic Part of the Reaction?
4 molecules breaking into 2 molecules, direction is favoured by high pressure and low product (e.g product turning back into the reactant)
9 of 11
What is the Endothermic Part of the Reaction?
2 molecules changing into 4 molecules, direction is favoured by low pressure and high temperature (e.g Reactants turning into the product)
10 of 11
What catalyst does it have?
Iron Catalyst
