## Question:

Suppose 1.32 grams of {eq}H_2 {/eq} is allowed to react with 10.4 grams of {eq}N_2 {/eq}, and 1.58 grams of {eq}NH_3 {/eq} is produced. What is the percent yield for this reaction?

{eq}3H_2(g) + N_2(g) \to 2NH_3(g) {/eq}

## Ammonia:

Ammonia is a compound having three hydrogen atoms bonded to a nitrogen atom. The nitrogen contains lone pair electrons. It is mainly used as fertilizer and also in the manufacturing of plastics, pesticides, etc.
