Answer:

The sulfur that we use in a laboratory is generally sulfur flowers, i.e. #S_8#....

Explanation:

Of course when represent an oxidation reaction, we might usually write...

#Fe + S rarr FeS#, rather than #Fe+1/8S_8rarrFeS#....

or... #S(s) + PR_3(l) rarr S=PR_3(s)#

Avogadro's number of sulfur atoms has a mass of #32.06*g#.
