Which answer describes the role of the catalyst in the Haber process?
It speeds up the reaction
It maximises the yield of ammonia
It's converted to ammonia
Which is the main reason for choosing the set of conditions used in the Haber process?
To make the ammonia as quickly as possible
To minimise the waste of starting materials
To minimise the cost of production of each tonne of ammonia
Which is the correct equation for the reaction of nitrogen and hydrogen in the Haber process?
N2 + 3H2 → NH3
N2 + 3H2 → 2NH3
2N2 + H2 → 2NH3
Why are high pressures used in the Haber process?
To maximise the yield of ammonia
To speed up the reaction
To ensure that no hydrogen and nitrogen are left over
