Is H_2S an organic or inorganic gas?

Inorganic

Explanation:

The gas doesn't contain any carbon, meaning it can't be organic. All organic molecules contain carbon, most contain hydrogen and many contain oxygen.

Inorganic gas.

Explanation:

Organic compounds are those that contain carbon-hydrogen bonds, i.e. we can say that all organic compounds are made up of carbon and hydrogen, as well as other elements if the molecule contains them.

In ${H}_{2} S$, it is hydrogen sulfide, and no carbon is present, and so it cannot be an organic compound.

That leaves hydrogen sulfide gas as an inorganic compound.

I hope this helps!
