The reaction which produce methanol from carbon monoxide and hydrogen is represented by the equation.
CO(g) + H2(g) ⇌CH3OH -ΔH= -94 kj/mole
The reaction is carried out at high pressure to give a better yield of methanol.
i) Explain why increased in pressure gives a better yield of methanol.
ii) The valued of ΔH is negative, what does this tell about the reaction.
iii) With reason state whether a high temperature or low temperature will give a better yield of methanol.
