HideShow resource information
What elements is ammonia made of ?
Nitrogen and Hydrogen
1 of 6
What is the main use of ammonia ?
Fertiliser
2 of 6
How are the raw materials obtained ?
Nitrogen is obtained from the air and hydrogen is obtained by reacting natural gas with steam or by cracking
3 of 6
What are the conditions for the haber process ?
450 degrees at 200x normal pressure
4 of 6
What is equilibrium?
When the forward reaction is the same as the backward one
5 of 6
Why are the conditions best ?
Any higher than 200x and there is safety risk (explosion). Any lower than 450 degrees and there won't be enough energy for the reaction
