The Haber Process

HideShow resource information
What is the Haber process used to make?
Ammonia (NH3)
1 of 11
What is the word equation for making Ammonia?
Nitrogen+Hydrogen=Ammonia
2 of 11
What is the symbol equation for making Ammonia?
N2+3H2=2NH3
3 of 11
What catalyst is used in this reaction?
An Iron catalyst
4 of 11
Why is a catalyst used?
To increase the rate of the reaction.
5 of 11
What temperature is used in the reaction?
450 degrees Celsius
6 of 11
How much pressure is used?
200 atmospheres
7 of 11
Why is this reaction a compromise?
Lowering the pressure and temperature would decrease the rate of reaction, whereas making them higher creates a lower yield of ammonia, but in a faster amount of time, making this more economically viable.
8 of 11
What are some e of the uses of Ammonia?
In fertilisers and cleaning products.
9 of 11
Where is the Nitrogen for the equation found?
In the air
10 of 11
Where is the hydrogen for the reaction found?
In natural gases.
