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.

The is the same type problem you posted about the wine cooler. Work this one the same way.

i got 92.3 L SO2 is this correct?
