on industrial scale, sulphuric acid or ammonia can be prepared by the contact process or Haber process methods respectively. as the chemist in your company that produces sulphuric acid or ammonia, analyse hoe the operating conditions for the process should be optimised to maximum yield in relation to two physical chemistry concepts

I believe the chemistry concepts you need to think about are the rate of reaction, and equilibrium

Think about the conditions that you need in order to maximise yield, i.e. to shift the equilibrium to the products side.

You're also going to need to take into account the rate of a reaction.
For instance, if a condition involves decreasing the temperature because that shifts the equilibrium to the right, and therefore the products, you don't therefore make the coldest reaction possible.

Why? Cos it's not going to happen. The particles will have no kinetic energy. So there is this compromise between these two concepts
