Manufacture Of Ammonia

Ammonia- `Nasty Odour` `Fertilizer`

Chemical Formula!

N2 (g) + 3H2 (g) = 2NH3 (g)

Nitrogen Hydrogen Ammonia

THE HABER PROCESS

The Haber Process combines Nitrogen from the air with hydrogen derived from natural gas into ammonia. The reaction is reversible and the production of ammonia is exothermic.
