Answer. For the reaction of nitrogen with hydrogen to form ammonia, the balanced chemical equation is

                     N2(g) + 3H2(g) <=====> 2NH3(g)
For the reaction
The rate of forward reaction       R f = k f [N2] [H2]3
The rate of reverse reaction Rr = kr [NH3]2
The expression for the equilibrium constant for this reaction is
                             Kc= [N2] [H2]3
