    5.00 mol of ammonia are introduced into a 5.00 Liter reactor vessel in which it partially dissociates at high temperatures.
    2 NHsubnumber3(g) = 3Hsubnumber2(g) +Nsubnumber2(g)
    At equilibrium at a particular temperature, 1.00 mole of ammonia remains. Calculate Ksubletterc for the reaction. Please show work.
    Also, briefly describe why addition of a catalyst does not affect the equilibrium constant for a reaction.

    = is actually two arrows pointing in the opposite direction
