Ammonia Production

Video on the production of ammonia

Chemical equation for the production of ammonia: N2(g) + 3H2(g) -> 2NH3(g)

Elements Used in the Production of AmmoniaNitrogen: Nitrogen Gas (N2(g)) is an odorless and colourless gas. It is one of the two elements that are needed in order to make ammoniaHydrogen: Hydrogen gas (H2(g)) is a colourless gas. It is the second of the two elements that are needed in order to make ammonia

The production of ammonia is a synthesis reaction, because it is 2 single elements bonding together to make a compound

Catalyst: An iron based catalyst with hydroxide is used in this reaction. A catalyst is a substance that increases the speed of a chemical reaction without itself undergoing any permanent chemical change. Without the presence of a catalyst the reaction would be so slow that virtually nothing would happen in sensible time and it would be very hard to produce ammonia.Temperature: In order for the most ammonia to be made in the shortest amount of time, the temperature should be at 400-450 degrees Celsius. Increasing the temperature causes the reaction to happen at a faster rate.Pressure: Having a high pressure is important to the rate that a reaction occurs. The ideal pressure for creating ammonia is 200 atmospheres.

Uses for Ammonia in Everyday LifeThe production of ammonia is very important to everyday life because it used in many products from fertilizer to cleaning products. Ammonia is preferred for plant growth because it contains nitrogen. Ammonia can be converted to Nitrate (NO2 ) and nitrate (NO3) by bacteria and then used by plants. Ammonia is used for many other uses such as window cleaners, pharmaceutical products,dyes for textiles and food colouring, paints, mineral extractions, and cattle feed and much more.
