Zinc sulfide and oxygen gas react to form oxide and sulfur dioxide. Determine the amount of ZnO that should be produced in a reaction between 46.5 g of ZnS and 13.3 g of oxygen. What is the mass of the xs reactant? Please show work

  • Chemistry -

    Do you know how to work a simple stoichiometry problem; i.e., say 46.5 g ZnS and ALL OF THE oxygen you need (in other words don't complicate it with an amount of oxygen)?
    Here is one worked. If you know how to do that, the limiting reagent problems are easy.
