Fritz Haber: Explore an Equilibrium, Feed the World

1. Describe the Haber Process for producing ammonia.

2. Describe Le Chatelier’s principle. When Haber increased the temperature, the yield of ammonia lowered. Explain why.

3. How does the use of a catalyst speed up the production of ammonia? Does the quantity of ammonia at equilibrium change?

4. How does the pressure inside the reaction vessel affect the equilibrium? Explain why this occurs.

5. Discuss the impact of the Haber process on the Earth’s population size.

6. Discuss the impact of the Haber process on aquatic ecosystems.
