2.2 Analysing the production and uses of ammonia in industry Ammonia is a chemical important in the agricultural sector. 8. 3. Urea produced from the reaction of _______________________________________ 4. Urea is a fertiliser used in agriculture. When hydrogen reacts with nitrogen. 5 . ammonia is formed. Superconducting alloys are also designed to ________________________________ in the area of defense. Ammonium Salt Fertilizer Production 1. Most chemical fertilizers are ______________________________________________ 4. Urea has the percent nitrogen content is very high. which is to make ___________ Molecule of ammonia (NH3) is composed of three atoms of hydrogen (H) and one atom of nitrogen (N). 2. Plants need nitrogen to __________________________________________________ 3.9. Ammonium salt produced by the neutralisation reaction between ammonia with acid as shown in the chemical equation below. Fertilizer ammonium salt is a source of nitrogen for plants. Salt Urea Fertilizer Production 1. The reaction produces urea occurs at a temperature of 200°C under a pressure of in the compressor chamber.

In the Haber process. nitrogen and hydrogen gas are mixed and passed through a metal catalyst to form ammonia. Factors that influence the production of ammonia is: a) optimum temperature: ________________________________ • Use of too high temperatures to ______________________________________ ________________________________________________ • The use of very low temperatures ____________________________________ b) pressure: __________________________________________ 6 . 5. The figure below shows the production of ammonia by the Haber process. Ammonia is produced synthetically from nitrogen and hydrogen by the ____________ Ammonia and its compounds are widely used as a fertilizer. 4.Ammonia Production in Industry Usage 1. Haber process is an ____________________________________________________ (reaction forward and backward). Ammonia is produced in the industry through the Haber process. 3. 6. In addition. ammonia is also used in the manufacture of ___________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ 2.

The table below shows the types of industrial waste and methods of control. use a chimney that is installed with the filter reduces the release of pollutants into the air and the use of solar energy to reduce the generation of waste. ii) of the Environmental Quality (Sewage and Industrial Effluents) Regulations .

8.4 Realising the need for preservation and conservation of the environment from industrial waste pollution for the wellbeing of mankind Effects of Disposal of Industrial Waste Not Regulated 1. Disposal of waste uncontrolled and disorganized have an adverse effect on the environment. The environment is clean and not contaminated ensure: a) people can lead a healthy life . 6. d) ____________________________________________ on the firm to practice. the steps can be taken to protect and conserve the environment include: a) to create awareness among people about the importance of a clean environment and work together to maintain the beauty and cleanliness. 7. Examples of conservation is to preserve the forest allow plants and animals to thrive in their natural environment. Effect of disposal of industrial waste uncontrolled and irregular. 5. unpolluted and suitable for living things including humans. Conservation refers to the steps taken to __________________________________ ___________________________________________________ 2. Examples of conservation is the ___________________________ allows us to have ______________________ and not polluted by industrial waste. e) enforce environmental regulations on the firm so that irresponsible practices such as illegal logging and removal of waste materials disorganization occurs. 3. including: a) b) c) d) e) Environmental Preservation and Conservation 1. 9 . 2. Measures to protect and conserve the environment is very important so that the environment will remain clean. Conservation refers to _________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________ 4. b) _______________________________________________________________ c) have a strategy and program for the preservation and conservation of the environment. b) plants and animals are protected and do not become extinct. c) the beauty of the environment is maintained.
