High-Pressure Chemical Equilibrium
Prepared by H. Binous
The Peng-Robinson equation of state is used to compute the correction factor due to gas-phase nonideality, φNH3 , as a result of the high pressure applied in the synthesis of ammonia (φN2 . In addition, the extent of reaction is computed. The Demonstration plots these two quantities versus pressure for temperatures ranging from 1000°R to 1500°R.
