The question representing the production of tetraphosphorus trisulfide (P4S3), a substance used in some match hears, is 8P4 + 3S8 ---> 8P4S3. Determine if each of the following statements is correct. If the statement is incorrect, rewrite it to make it correct.
a. To produce 4 mol P4S3, 4 mol P4 must react with 1.5 mol S8.
b. With 4 mol P4 reacts with 4 mol S8, sulfur is the limiting reactant.
c. When 6 mol P4 and 6 mol S8 react, 1320 g P4S8 is produced.

    This is an exercise in using the coefficients.
    a.
    4 mol P4S3 is just half of what's in the equation; therefore, it should take 1/2 of the reactants and that mens 4 mols P4 and 1/2 mols S8. Thus a is true. The other are done the same way. If one of the other statements is false, juggle the numberrs to make it true. You may NOT change the equation.
