3. The Haber¡VBosch process for fixation of nitrogen is one of the more important chemical reactions ever invented. Without the invention of this process, which is used to make ammonia for fertilizer, the world¡¦s population would not be as large as it is today.

N2(g) + 3H2(g) „³ 2NH3(g)

List three ways in which the yield of ammonia in the reaction above can be improved for a given amount of H2.
Additionally, explain the principle behind each method.
