Answer:

The mole ratio #FeOdivSO_2=2div4=1div2#, as you can see from the equation.

Explanation:

So: #8 mol SO_2harr4mol FeO#

Answer:

#"4 moles of FeO"#

Explanation:

#"In every reaction we can determine amount of reactants and"# #"products by using ratio formulas."#

#"In this reaction the ratio formula =

#2CuFeS_2 : 5O_2 = 2Cu : 2FeO : 4SO_2#

By solving the ratio we see

#(2 * 2CuFeS_2) : (5/4 * 5O_2) = (2* 2 Cu) : (2 * 2FeO) : (4 * 2 SO_2)#

#(4CuFeS_2) : ( 6.2O_2) = (4Cu) : (4FeO) : (8SO_2)#

Therefore FeO produced is 4 moles
