Doc Brown's Chemistry KS4 science GCSE/IGCSE/O level Revision Notes

Reversible Reactions, Chemical Equilibrium, Ammonia Synthesis by the Haber Process & Nitric acid, their Manufacture and Uses, Fertilisers, Nitrogen Cycle

The first two sections introduce the concepts of reversible reactions and a dynamic chemical equilibrium through detailed explanation and example descriptions. The rules on the effect of temperature, pressure and concentration on the position of an equilibrium are also covered. The 3rd section describes the manufacture (synthesis) of ammonia by the Haber Process from nitrogen and hydrogen and how ammonia is converted to nitric acid. The 4th and 5th sections describe some important uses of ammonia and nitric acid, including the use of ammonium and nitrate salts as artificial fertilisers and problems with their use. The last section outlines the 'Nitrogen Cycle' in terms of the basic chemistry and basic biological factors.
