Problem: You are a member of a research team of chemists discussing plans for a plant to produce ammonia:   N2(g) + 3H2(g) ⇌ 2NH3(g)(a) The plant will operate at close to 700 K, at which K p is 1.00 x 10−4, and employs the stoichiometric 1/3 ratio of N2/H2. At equilibrium, the partial pressure of NH 3 is 50. atm. Calculate the partial pressures of each reactant and Ptotal.
