When 4.008 g of sulfur is burned completely in abundant air, it combines with oxygen to form a single gaseous product with a total mass of 10.008 g. What is the mass percent of sulfur and oxyegn in the gaseous product?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The balanced chemical equation between...

2S 302
Mass of SO 10.008 g
Mass of sulfur =4.008 g
Mass of SO -Mass of sulfur 10.008 g-4.008 g
Mass of O
-6.000 g
