    Hi,

    The reaction for the haber process is
    N2(g)+3H2(g)---> 2NH3(g)

    The synthesis of Ammonia is usually carried out at 800K, and at 800K the
    The delta G value calculated was -33.6 which Is correct however why Is the reaction still not feasible at 800K. Please help really confused

    I imagine it means feasible in the practical sense, rather than the spontaneous sense, because the equilibrium exists way over to the side of the reactants at this temperature.
