Hydrogen sulfide reacts with sulfur dioxide to give H2O and S, H2S + SO2 = H2O + S(solid), unbalanced. If 3.0 L of H2S gas at 760 torr produced 4.8 g of sulfur, what is the the temperature in Celsius?
The temperature of the gas is 90 °C.
You must convert
and then use the Ideal Gas Law to find the temperature of the
1. Write the balanced equation.
The balanced equation is
2. Calculate the moles of
3. Use the Ideal Gas Law to calculate the temperature of the
#color(blue)(bar(ul(|color(white)(a/a)PV = nRTcolor(white)(a/a)|)))" "#
Note: The answer can have only 1 significant figure, because the Kelvin temperature has only 2 significant digits. If you need more precision, you will have to recalculate.
