How many moles of NH3 can be produced from 16.5 mol of H2 and excess N2?
Express your answer numerically in moles.
Reaction of hydrogen and nitrogen to form ammonia
Hydrogen gas, H2, reacts with nitrogen gas, N2, to form ammonia gas, NH3, according to the equation
3 H2(g) + N2(g) → 2 NH3(g)
NOTE: Throughout this tutorial use molar masses expressed to five significant figures.
