Determine the mass of fluorine per gram of sulfur for the sample of sulfur tetrafluoride.
Sulfur and fluorine form several different compounds including sulfur hexafluoride and sulfur tetrafluoride. Decomposition of a sample of sulfur hexafluoride produced 4.46 g of fluorine and 1.25 g of sulfur, while decomposition of a sample of sulfur tetrafluoride produced 4.44 g of fluorine and 1.87 g of sulfur.
Calculate the mass of fluorine per gram of sulfur for the sample of sulfur tetrafluoride.
