A crude oil burned in electrical generating plants contains about 1.2% sulfur by mass. When the oil burns, the sulfur forms sulfur dioxide gas:

S(s) + O2(g) -------> SO2(g)

How many liters of SO2 (d = 2.60 g/L) are produced when 1.00 x 10^4 kg of oil burns at the same temperature and pressure?

Thanks :D

    10^4 kg of oil contains 1.2*10^2 kg or 1.2*10^5 g of sulfur. Convert that to moles of sulfur by dividing by 32 g/mole..

    That is how many moles of SO2 you will form. From that, get the mass and the volume of SO2.
