### Homework 7A.1

**Mon Mar 09, 2020 11:05 pm**Hii I was wondering if I could get some help with parts (b) and (c) for this homework question?

Complete the following statements relating to the production of ammonia by the Haber process, for which the overall reaction is N2(g) + 3 H2(g) --> 2 NH3(g). (a) The rate of consumption of N2 is ______________ times the rate of consumption of H2. (b) The rate of formation of NH3 is ________________ times the rate of consumption of H2. (c) The rate of formation of NH3 is ________________ times the rate of consumption of N2.

For (b) I thought that it would be 3/2 since theres 3 H2 and 2 NH3 but according to a past thread (from 2018) it is actually 2/3. And for (c) I thought it would be 1/2 since only 1 N2 is needed to make 2 NH3 but it is actually just 2. Can someone please explain to me why/how I mixed up the relationships' numerators/denominators? Thank you!
