🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Stec's class at UIC.
In order to calculate the maximum mass of S 8 that can be produced, we would need to find the limiting reactant. The limiting reactant would produce that maximum amount.
First, we calculate the molar mass of both reactants and S 8 as preparation for later calculations.
What is the maximum mass of S 8 that can be produced by combining 86.0 g of each reactant?
8SO2 + 16H2S → 3S8 + 16H2O
