Tetraphosphorus hexoxide (M = 219.9 g/mol) is formed by the reaction of phosphorus with oxygen gas 

P4 (s) + 3O2 (g) → P4O6 (s) 

If a mixture of 75 3 g of phosphorus and 38.7 g of oxygen produce 43.3 g of P4O6, what is the percent yield for the reaction? 

Select one:

(a) 57.5% 

(b) 38.0% 

(c) 16.3% 

(d) 32.4% 

(e) 48.8%
