What is a reversible reaction?
A chemical reaction that can happen in both directions.
1 of 10
What is the Haber Process?
the creation of ammonia for fertilisers through nitrogen and hydrogen.
2 of 10
Where is nitrogen extracted from for the Haber Process?
The air.
3 of 10
Where is Hydrogen extracted for the Haber Process?
From a natural gas, methane.
4 of 10
What are the disadvantages and advantages the haber process?
Higher crop yields from feritlisers, eutrophication
5 of 10
Explain the haber reaction involving exotheric and endothermic reactions
When ammonia is created heat is released meaning it is exothermic. Hence when ammonia is broken down it takes in heat in order to break the covalent bonds.
6 of 10
What is the affect of temperature on the haber process?
Decreasing the temperature means it will increase the rate of the forward reaction, hence the equilibrium has shifted.
7 of 10
What are the conditions needed for the haber process?
a high temperature - 450c, high pressure -200, iron catalyst
8 of 10
Who first made ammonia artificially?
Fritz Haber
9 of 10
What is Dynamic Equilibrium ?
When the forward reaction and the backward reaction happen at the same rate.
