Hydrogen sulfide burns in the presense of oxygen producing sulfiar dioxide and water

I got HS + O2 >>> SO2 + H2O

Its not balanced yet, but can you check if i wrote the equation right? Does the hydrogen sulfide need charges added to them?

  • Chemistry -

    hyrogen sulfide is H2S. The products are right.

  • Chemistry -

    so it does not need any charges? and isnt that an acid?

  • Chemistry -

    I got for final answer as 2HS + 3O2 -----> 2SO2 + 2H2O

  • Chemistry -

    How can you get 2HS ==> etc when I gave you the correct formula for hydrogen sulfide as H2S?
    H2S + O2 ==> SO2 + H2O which isn't balanced. And what is what an acid? H2S is an acid in aqueous solution. SO2 is an acid when added to water to form H2SO3.
