Problem: Part D. The S−S bond distances in S8 are 204 pm and the F−F bond distance in F2 is 143 pm. Use these values to estimate the S−F bond distance in S2F2. Express your answer to three significant figures and include the appropriate units.When elemental sulfur, S8, is heated with AgF, a gas forms that contains only sulfur and fluorine. The following tests were done to characterize this gaseous product.The density of the gas was found to be 0.807 g/L at 152 mmHg and 35 C.When the gas reacts with water, all the fluorine is converted to aqueous HF. A 480-mL sample of the dry gas at 125 mmHg and 28 C, when reacted with 80.0 mL of water, yielded a 0.080 M solution of HF.

Express your answer to three significant figures and include the appropriate units.

When elemental sulfur, S8, is heated with AgF, a gas forms that contains only sulfur and fluorine. The following tests were done to characterize this gaseous product.

The density of the gas was found to be 0.807 g/L at 152 mmHg and 35 C.

When the gas reacts with water, all the fluorine is converted to aqueous HF. A 480-mL sample of the dry gas at 125 mmHg and 28 C, when reacted with 80.0 mL of water, yielded a 0.080 M solution of HF.
