Problem: Hydrogen sulfide is composed of two elements: hydrogen and sulfur. In an experiment, 6.700 g of hydrogen sulfide is fully decomposed into its elements.If 0.396 g of hydrogen is obtained in this experiment, how many grams of sulfur must be obtained?

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to calculate the mass of sulfur must be obtained in an experiment wherein 6.700 g of hydrogen sulfide is fully decomposed into its elements. We have obtained 0.396 g of hydrogen.

We shall determine the mass of sulfur using the formula below:

mass hydrogen sulfide=mass hydrogen+mass sulfur
