  1. A magent is not a chemical test anyway.

    This question has been answered several times in the last few days.

    Also it is iron sulfide, the ph spelling went out of use internationally some 15+ years ago.

  3. Hi there

    Please please help me. I'm a mom trying to find the answer for my child. Do not have intenet at home and have been to the library for 3 hours and one th internet at work for 5 hours and still cannot find an answer. I stumbled across the website by luck (aren't very good with computers) I need the answer to this really bad and also as how to do a physical test to separate a mixture of iron and sulfur. Would a simple test like pouring water on the mixture help? The iron will sink to the bottom and sulfur will stay afloat. Then i just "spoon" the sulfur from the water? If you know of anything else, please please help. I also do not know how to search for the answer you gave on 9/2/09 (too stupid) Your help is highly appreciated

    Please be specific. In an experiement 23.4 g of iron sulphide, FeS are added to excess oxygen, and 16.5 of Iron oxide, Fe2O3 are produced. The balanced euation for the reaction is 4FeS =7O2 -- 2Fe2O +2SO2. Calculate the percent
