It does not. It needs 3 Hydrogen molecules and 1 nitrogen molecule to produce 2 moles of ammonia. Also it needs a very high pressure and a temperature of around 200 C and usually a catalyst too. Then ammonia can be formed. It is known as the Haber process.

N2 + 3H2 <-----> 2NH3

The formula for the synthesis of ammonia from diatomic nitrogen and hydrogen is: N2+3H2--&gt;2NH3

How do you find if you have 14.5 moles of N2 how many moles of H2 are theoretically needed to produce 22.5 moles of NH3 according to the reaction N2 plus 3H2 2NH3?

N2 + 3H2 -&gt; 2NH3 If you have moles produced you can do it this way. 22.5 moles NH3 (3 moles H2/2 moles NH3) = 33.8 moles H2 needed -----------------------------------

What is N2 plus H2-NH3 blanced?

No, it's not balanced because the number of hydrogens and nitrogens on the left is not equal to the number on the right. 3H2 + N2 --&gt; 2NH3

N2 plus 3H2 -- 2NH3 If you produce 55.5 grams of ammonia how many grams of nitrogen will you need?

You need the balanced chemical equation for N2 and H2 combining to form ammonia, NH3.N2 (g) + 3 H2 (g) -----> 2 NH3 (g)Moles NH3 = ( 55.5 g NH3 ) / ( 17.03 g/mol NH3 ) = 3.259 moles of NH3n N2 required = ( 3.259 mol NH3 ) ( 1 N2 mol / 2 NH3 mol ) = 1.629 moles N2m N2 required = ( 1.629 mol N2 ) ( 28.103 g N2 / mol N2 ) = 45.67 g N2 needed

True or false the equation N2 plus 3H2 means that 1g of N2 reacts with 3g of H2 to form 2g of NH3?
