Answer:

Ammonia forms when nitrogen gas #(N_"2")# and hydrogen gas #(H_"2")# reacts.

Explanation:

The formula for ammonia is #NH_"3"#. Not to be confused with ammonium, which has a subscript of 4.

Ammonia forms when nitrogen gas #(N_"2")# and hydrogen gas #(H_"2")# reacts.

Chemical equation is a synthesis reaction:
#(N_"2")# + #3(H_"2")# #-># #(2NH_"3")#

In nature, ammonia is produced by the product of animal waste - urea + water #-># carbamine acid + ammonia. More information can be found here: Ammonia BMPs
