Furthermore, what are the reaction conditions for the contact process?
The conditions needed for it are: a catalyst of vanadium(V) oxide, V 2O. a temperature of around 450°C. a pressure of approximately 2 atmospheres.
Subsequently, question is, who developed the contact process? Peregrine Phillips
Consequently, why v2o5 is used in contact process?
Vanadium oxide (V2O5) is used as catalyst in this reaction which increases the rate of reaction and reduces the need for a high temperature. In this step of the contact process, concentrated sulfuric acid is used to dissolve the sulfur trioxide which produces the oleum.
Is the contact process exothermic or endothermic?
In the Haber process, the forwards reaction is exothermic , so the reverse reaction is endothermic. This means that as the temperature is increased, the position of equilibrium moves to the left, and the yield of ammonia decreases.
