    For 1, generally the radius decreases as one moves from the left to the right in the periodic table. Adding electrons to the outer shell (as in S^-2) usually increases the size disproportionately because the electrons are repelling one another.

    For #2, make sure the equation is balanced.
    Convert 3.4 grams O2 to moles O2. moles = grams/molar mass.
    Using the coefficients in the balanced equation, convert moles O2 to moles of CO2.
    Convert moles CO2 to grams. grams = moles x molar mass.
