Solution

## Ostwald's process was used for large scale generation of HNO3. This process is based upon the catalytic oxidation of NH3 by atmospheric oxygen.$4N{H}_{3}\left(g\right)+5{O}_{2}\underset{500K,9bar}{\overset{Pt/Rhgaugecatalyst}{\to }}4NO\left(g\right)+6{H}_{2}O\left(g\right)$$2NO\left(g\right)+{O}_{2}\left(g\right)⇋2N{O}_{2}\left(g\right)$$3N{O}_{2}\left(g\right)+{H}_{2}O\left(l\right)\to 2HN{O}_{3}\left(aq\right)+NO\left(g\right)$
