We’re asked to determine the best combination of pressure and temperature to run the reaction to maximize NH3 yield.
We’re given a diagram showing the effect of temperature and pressure on NH3 yield in the Haber process. From this diagram, we can see that:
Effect of temperature and pressure on NH3 yield in the Haber process.
Each mixture was produced by starting with a 3:1 molar mixture of H2 and N2.
At what combination of pressure and temperature should you run the reaction to maximize NH3 yield?
