In the industrial synthesis of ammonia, the equilibrium constant expression may be written as: Keq= [NH3]^2/[N2][H2]^3
Calculate the value of this equilibrium constant, if the equilibrium concentration of nitrogen in the reaction mixture at 600°C if [N2] = 4.53 and [H2] = 2.49 M; [NH3] = 7.62 M
Keq = (NH3)^2/(N2)(H2)^3
Keq = (7.62)^2/(4.53)(2.49)^3 = about 0.830
