Nitrogen (N) and hydrogen (H) react wth each other to produce ammonia (#NH_3#). This reactor is shown in an equation as #N_2 + 3H_2 -> 2NH_3#. What is the ratio of nitrogen atoms to hydrogen atoms in ammonia?

Answer:

0.33

Explanation:

The chemical formula for ammonia is
#2NH_3#
meaning that we have two nitrogen atoms and six hydrogen atoms.
To find the ratio of nitrogen atoms to hydrogen atoms we say:

#(2/6) = 0.33#
