4. Which of the mentioned statements regarding the solubility of ammonia is true?
a) Insoluble in water
b) Highly Soluble in water
c) Soluble in Chloroform
d) Highly Soluble in water and soluble in Chloroform

Answer: d
Clarification: Ammonia is highly soluble in water and is soluble in solvents like chloroform, ether, ethanol, and methanol.

5. What is the catalyst used in manufacture of Ammonia by Haber’s process?
a) Fe
b) Molybdenum
c) Silica
d) Aluminum

Answer: a
Clarification: Fe is used as catalyst in the process of synthesis of ammonia by Haber’s process.

5. What is the promoter used in the manufacture of Ammonia by Haber’s process?
a) Fe
b) Molybdenum
c) Silica
d) Aluminum

Answer: b
Clarification: Molybdenum is used as catalyst promoter in synthesis of Ammonia by Haber’s process.

6. What is the temperature range at which the preheated gas flows through the inside of tube, which contains promoted iron catalyst?
a) 450-500 Celsius
b) 500-550 Celsius
c) 550-600 Celsius
d) 400-600 Celsius

Answer: b
Clarification: The preheated gas flows next through the inside of the tube, which contains promoted porous iron catalyst at 500-550 Celsius.

7. Synthesis of Ammonia by Haber’s process is what kind of reaction?
a) Exothermic
b) Endothermic
c) No change is energy
d) None of the mentioned

Answer: a
Clarification: The reaction that occurs is N2 + 3H2 which gives 2NH3, The reaction is reversible with ΔH = -22.0 Kcal.

8. Which of the mentioned conditions will favor synthesis of Ammonia by Haber’s process?
a) High temperature and High pressure
b) Low temperature and High pressure
c) High temperature and Low pressure
d) Low temperature and Low pressure

Answer: b
Clarification: According to Le Chatlier principle forward reaction is favorable when pressure is high, i.e. equilibrium shifts to right, which gives more Ammonia. Since the reaction is exothermic, Low temperature will favor the reaction. So Low temperature and High-pressure favors the synthesis.

9. Which of the following mentioned is a source of H2 to produce ammonia by Haber’s process?
a) Producer gas
b) Water gas
c) Synthesis gas
d) None of the mentioned

Answer: c
Clarification: Synthesis gas is used to obtain H2 required for the process and N2 from air addition in synthesis gas process.

10. Iron oxide catalyst if fused which of the mentioned promoters?
a) Alkali
b) Non-ferrous metal oxides
c) Al2O3
d) All of the mentioned

Answer: d
Clarification: NH3 synthesis catalysts are based on iron oxide promoted by alkali or non ferrous metal oxides such as K2O and Al2O3.
