reaction between ammonia and benzoic acid


I came across a question in my chemistry homework where i am supposed to write the balanced equation between ammonia and benzoic acid. I am not really good with chemistry but it's my last exam of chemistry ever in my high school experience, so i need to (and want to) get a good grade.

So, reaction between ammonia and benzoic acid,
This is what i know so far:
C6H5COOH + NH3 ------------->___________________________________ ?

I also know that compounds with the formula RCONH2( where R is a radical) are called amides of carboxylic acids but i don't know how to use that in my problem.

Any help is appreciated! :smile:

Acid + base = ...

Benzamide is formed from salt only after prolonged heating in a closed vessel.
