What is the maximum mass of S8 that can be produced by combining 76.0 g of each reactant?


mass of S8 in grams:


Expert Answer

Step 1

Mass neither be created nor destroyed in a chemical reaction. Mass can be calculated in a balanced chemical equation by using law of conservation of mass.

Step 2

Firstly You calculate the no.of moles.
