1. To balance the reaction, figure the moles in 50g S, and the moles in 100gCl2.

S: 50/32=1.56
Cl2: 100/71=1.41
so the mole ratio is 1.56/1.41=1.1 or 11 to 10.
At this point,
realizing that more moles of sulfur was consumed than Chlorine, it will not be possible to balance the equation, as the compound with the highest S:Cl2 ratio is S2Cl2, a 1:1 ratio.
Flawed problem.

S+Cl2 >> S2Cl2 + SCl2

How much heat is released when a mixture containing 12.6 g CS2 and 12.6 g Cl2 reacts by the following equation? CS2(g) + 3 Cl2(g) → S2Cl2(g) + CCl4(g) ΔH° = −230. kJ
