##### Can someone help me figure this out?

I Have to use this equation:  N2+ 3H2=2NH3 to answer the question

The question states:  If 2.0 moles of N2 reacts completly, how many grams of NH3 will be produced?  I came up with 4.0g. But I don't think its correct.

uhh.....you mean, 4 moles?  You need to covert that to grams, 2 moles of N2 creates 4 moles of NH3.  Not 4 grams.

yeh your right. but your unit for NH3 is not correct should be moles... if you want your answer in grams just convert 2 mole of N2 into gram and multiply by 2 ....

No they wanted the weight of ammoina produced from 2 moles of nitrogen not the weight of 4 moles of nitrogen.

2N2 + 3H2 -> 4NH3

2 moles of nitrogen give 4 moles of ammonia which weigh 72g in total (4x18 = 72)

Just wanted to add:
1. Shouldn't the mole coefficient of H2 be 6?
2. Why (4*18)g? Ammonia's Mr is 17. Then, 4*17=68g

Yes its 68 not 72 and for 2N2 yes 6H2 gives 4NH3.
