in reaction S + O2 -> SO2, determine percent yield if 4 grams of S produced 64 gram of SO2

• chemistry -

mols S = 4/atomic mass S.
Convert mols S to mols SO2.
Convert mols SO2 to g SO2 by g = mols x molar mass. This is the theoretical yield.Then
%yield = (actual yield/theor yield)*100 = ?

thank you
