# Equilibrium of Ammonia

APCHEM-LU4KQK

The formation of ammonia at 300$^\circ$C is represented as:

$$N_{2 (g)} + 3 H_{ 2(g)}\rightleftharpoons 2 NH_{3 (g)} \quad \quad K_{ eq} = 4.34 \times 10^{-3}$$

As the reaction progresses, you are able to collect 0.25 mol $N_2$, 0.15 mol $H_2$ and 0.10 mol $NH_3$ from the 5.0 L vessel.

At the point of sample collection, has the reaction reached equilibrium?

A

Yes.

B

No, it must proceed in the forward direction.

C

No, it must proceed in the reverse direction.

D

There is not enough information to determine.
