A mixture of 56.0 g of S and 1.10×102 g of Cl2 reacts completely to form S2Cl2 and SCl2.
Find the mass of S2Cl2 formed
Mass of S = 56.0 g
Mass of Cl2 = 1.10×102 g
We need to find the mass of S2Cl2
Write the chemical reaction:
3S + 2Cl2 ---> S2Cl2 +SCl2
As per the chemical reaction,
3 mol. Of S (96g) reacts with 2 mol. Of Cl2 ( 142 g) of chlorine
The molar ratio is 3 : 2
And in the given question,
56 g of S reacts with 110 g of Cl2
32 g is 1 mol.
56g ---------? Mol.
56 X 1 / 32 = 1.75 mol.
1 mol. Of Cl2 = 71 g
? mol. = 110 g of Cl2
110 X 1 / 71 = 1.54 mol.
Molar ratio of S: Cl = 1.75 : 1.54
From the above, it’s clear that S is limiting reagent.
Mass of S2Cl2 :
56 g S (1 mol S/32 g S) ( 1 mol S2Cl2/3mol S) = 0.577 mol.
110 g Cl2 (1 mol Cl2/70.90 g Cl2) ( 1 molS2Cl2/2 mol Cl2) = 0.77 mol.
mass of S2Cl2 formed = (0.577 mol.) ( 135 g S2Cl2 /1 mol S2Cl2)
