Out of the Air
Pt. 2Streaming Video - 2007
Two very important products derived from air are ammonia and nitric acid. Ammonia is produced when hydrogen gas is extracted from natural gas and steam, mixed with nitrogen from the air, and heated. The resulting ammonia gas is condensed into liquid form, to be made into other chemicals. Ammonia is also used to make nitric acid, basic in the production of fertilizers, detergents, and many other products. The program also discusses the role of chemical and mechanical engineers in industry.
