Le Chatelier's Principle

In class we looked at the chemical equation N2(g) + 3H2(g)= (double arrows) 2 NH3(g).
Without adding more reactants, how would you increase the yield of NH3(g)? We went over this in class but I did not understand the reasoning.

Without adding more reactants, you would have to decrease the amount of products (NH3) in order to yield more products.

Le Chatelier's principle suggests a good way of ensuring that a reaction goes on generating a substance: simply remove products as they are formed. In the continuing hunt for equilibrium, the reaction generates more product.

Removing product as it is formed results in more product yield because the reaction will keep trying to reach equilibrium as product is removed, so the reactants will continue being turned into product.

You could also increase the pressure.
