Multistage operation (as in the case of catalytic oxidation of SO?) is not carried out for NH? synthesis, because of


A : a. comparatively higher pressure drop.

B : b. high cost of the high pressure vessel used for the reactor.

C : c. higher pumping cost.

D : d. chances of entrainment and disturbance of catalyst bed.

In ammonia synthesis (N? + 3H? = 2NH?), there is a decrease in total volume, hence to get high equilibrium conversion, the reaction should be carried out at


A : a. low pressure.

B : b. high pressure.

C : c. very high temperature.

A : a. decreasing the pressure.

B : b. decreasing the temperature.

C : c. increasing the temperature.

D : d. none of these.
