What is the chemical equation for the reaction between iron and sulphur to produce iron sulphide? Do we write sulphur as S or S8?

  • Chemistry-help -

    Different people do it different ways; however, I think that since S has been found to exist as the S8 atoms to the molecule, the correct way is to write it as
    8Fe + S8 ==> 8FeS

    it can be written two ways one way is the way anonymous said or the other way is Fe+S=FeS

    Fe+S=FeS
