you work for a company that makes ammonia,NH3, which is an important compund needed in the manufacture of fertilizers. Ammonia is produced by the following reaction:
N2 + 3H2 -----------> 2NH3(g)
on the basis of what you have discovered in this experiment, how would your company alter the conditions under which this reaction is carried out so as to produce ammonia at the fastest rate possible?

  1. Increasing the pressure shifts the equilibrium to the right, producing more NH3. I don't know what experiment you conducted so I can't connect them; however, I should point out that increasing P only shifts the equilibrium, it doesn't say anything about how fast NH3 will be produced.
