Ammonium phosphate


is an important ingredient in many solid fertilizers. It can be made by reacting aqueous phosphoric acid


with liquid ammonia. Calculate the moles of ammonium phosphate produced by the reaction of


of phosphoric acid. Be sure your answer has a unit symbol, if necessary, and round it to the correct number of significant digits.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given data:
