What is the Contact Process used to make?
Sulfuric acid
1 of 5
What are the products in each of the stages?
Sulfur Dioxide, Sulfur Trioxide and Sulfuric Acid
2 of 5
What catalyst is used to speed the process up?
Vanadium Pentoxide
3 of 5
Why is a compromise temperature of 450°C used?
The reaction is exothermic, so a lower temperature would move the equilibrium to the right, getting more product, but lowering the temperature slows the reaction
4 of 5
Complete the equation: Sulfur trioxide + Water = _______________
Sulfuric acid
