Chemistry

In the formation of acid rain, sulfur dioxide reacts with oxygen and water in the air to form sulfuric acid. Write the balanced chemical equation for the reaction.

2 SO2 + 1 O2 + 2 H2O --> 2 H2SO4

If 5.45 g SO2 react with excess oxygen and water, how many grams of H2SO4 are produced?

  1. Convert 5.45 g SO2 to mols using mols = g/molar mass.
    Convert mols SO2 to mols H2SO4 using the coefficients in the balanced equation.
    Convert mol H2SO4 to grams using g = mols x molar mass.
