Elemental sulfur can form sulfur trioxide when burned. When sulfur trioxide is dissolved in water, it yields sulfuric acid. The net reaction is shown. What mass of sulfur is needed to yield 138 grams of sulfuric acid.
The number is correct but look at the algebra. I don't think you have 8 mols S8; you have 1 mol S8. Check this out.
mols H2SO4 = 138/98. OK.
Convert to mols S8. That will be
138/98 x (1 mol S8/8 mol H2SO4).
Now convert that to g S8
138/98 x (1/8) x (molar mass S8) =
138/98 x (1/8) x (8*32) = 45.1
If I went through your algebra correctly, you made an error in algebra which just happened to produce the correct answer (with the 8S8 in your answer).
At 627ºC, sulfur dioxide and oxygen gases combine to form sulfur trioxide gas. At equilibrium, the concentrations for sulfur dioxide, oxygen, and sulfur trioxide gases are .0060M, .0054M, and .0032M, respectively. a. Write a
Sulfur dioxide reacts with oxygen to form sulfur trioxide according to the equation 2SO2(g) + O2(g) <-> 2SO3(g) Samples of sulfur dioxide, oxygen, and sulfur trioxide were added to a flask of volume 1.40 dm^3 and allowed to
Sulfur trioxide, SO3, is produced in enormous quantities each year for use in the synthesis of sulfuric acid. S(s) + O2(g) -> SO2(g) 2SO2(g) + O2(g) -> 2SO3(g) What volume of O2 (g) at 350 degrees Celsius and a pressure of
Calculate the density of sulfur trioxide gas at 35 degrees celsius and 715 torr pressure. I know that d=m/v = PM/RT. Im not sure how to set this up. I know the molar mass of sulfur trioxide is 80.0642 but im not sure if I need to
According to the following reaction, how many grams of sulfur trioxide will be formed upon the complete reaction of 21.2 grams of oxygen gas with excess sulfur dioxide? sulfur dioxide (g) + oxygen (g) sulfur trioxide (g)
Oleum or fuming sulfuric acid available commercially in concentrations ranging from 20 to 99.9% sulfur trioxide. What is the percent by mass of sulfur trioxide (SO3) if oleum is expressed as 3H2SO4 . 5SO3?
