3. why is high pressure needed?

  • increases of yield
  • speeds up reaction
  • makes the temperature higher
  • reduces activation activity

4. Explain how proteins in the leaves change into nitrates

  • they become nitrates from proteins
  • leaves decay then ammonia forms nitrifying bacteria converting into ammonia nitrate
  • proteins become acids that become nitrates
  • they shrivel into nitrates
