For the reaction represented by the equation #N_2 + 3H_2 -> 2NH_3#, how many moles of nitrogen are required to produce 18 mol of ammonia?
The reaction is:
The molar ratio between Nitrogen and ammonia is
Compare the mole ratio between
The mole ratio between
If 2 moles of
then 18 moles of
Therefore 9 moles of nitrogen are required to produce 18 moles of ammonia.
