Determine the mass of zinc sulphide, ZnS, produced when 6.2g of zinc and 4.5g of sulphur are reacted.
Equation given: Zn + S8 >> ZnS
Balanced equation: 8Zn + S8 >> 8ZnS

nZn= 6.2 g/ (65.39 g/mol) = 0.095 mol
nS8= 4.5 g/(256.48 g/mol) = 0.018 mol

nS8 = 0.095 mol Zn x (1 mol S8/8 mol Zn) = 0.012 mol

0.095 mole Zn x (8 mole ZnS / 8 moles Zn) = 0.095 moles ZnS

mZnS = 0.095 mol x 97.47 g/mol

mZnS = 9.24 g

Therefore, the mass of zinc sulphide produced when 6.2 g of zinc and 4.5 g of sulphur are reacted, 9.24 g of sulphide are produced.

Is 9.24 g the right answer? As well as everything I've done to get to 9.24 grams? If you could let me know that would be great! Thanks.
