Start with the balanced chemical reaction for the synthesis reaction of ammonia from nitrogen gas and hydrogen gas
Now, it's much easier to first determine how many moles of ammonia are produced, and then convert the moles into molecules.
Notice that you have a
The number of moles of hydrogen that react is
Using the aforementioned mole ratio, we know that this many moles of hydrogen will produce
Now to express the number of moles as number of molecules. By definition, 1 mole of any substance or element contains exactly
If you look at the number of moles of ammonia, you'll notice that it's much smaller than 1, which means that you'll get fewer than
So, to summarize
- Write the balanced chemical equation;
- Establish the mole ratio that exists between hydrogen and ammonia;
- Calculate the number of moles of hydrogen given;
- Calculate the number of moles of ammonia produced;
- Convert the moles into number of molecules by using Avogadro's number,
#6.022 * 10^(23)#molecules per mole.
