Step 1

Given,

Sulfur is burned completely in a restricted amount of air, it again combines with oxygen to form a single gaseous product. The reaction can be written as:

S + O2 → SO2

Mass of sulfur (S) = 4.008 g

Mass of product (SO2) = 8.008 g

Step 2

Law of conservation of mass states that the mass of reactant is equal to the mass of products.

Step 3

The mass percent of sulfur and oxygen in the ...
