Solution 1

Ammonia is prepared using the Haber’s process. The yield of ammonia can be maximized under the following conditions:

(i) High pressure (∼ 200 atm)

(ii) A temperature of ∼700 K

(iii) Use of a catalyst such as iron oxide mixed with small amounts of K2O and Al2O3

Solution 2

Ammonia is prepared by Haber’s process as given below:

`triangle_rH^@ = -92.4 kJ mol^(-1)`

According to Le Chatelier's principle to maximise the yield of ammonia high P and T=~700 K should be used. The catalyst increases the rate of reaction and Mo promoter increase the efficiency of Fe catalyst.
