Using John Dalton's law of multiple proportions. There are two different compounds of sulfur and fluorine. In SF6, the mass of fluorine per gram of sulfur is 3.55 gF/gS. IN the compound, SFx, the mass of fluorine per gram of sulfur is 1.18 g F/g S. What is the value of X for the second compound?
ANd it gives me a hint: Determine the relationship between the mass ratios.
