Urea, CO(NH_{2})_{2}, is manufactured on a large scale for use in producing urea-formaldehyde plastics and as a fertilizer. What is the maximum mass of urea that can be manufactured from the CO_{2} produced by combustion of 1.00 × 10^{3} kg of carbon followed by the reaction?

CO_{2}(*g*) + 2NH_{3}(*g*) ⟶ CO(NH_{2})_{2}(*s*) + H_{2}O(*l*)
