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.
