    Pppl I do not know what has just happened there is this basic moles question which has just gone out of my mind!!!!!!

    S + 02-----------> s02

    what mass of S02 will be formed by reacting Oxygen with 64.2 (g) of S

    S 02 S02
    (32.1) + (32) -----------> (64.1) so multiply by 2

    64.2 + 64 ----------- 128.2

    shudnt that be the answer but I know Im missing out a step!!!!!!! This iis getting to me as I know its basic all the organic mechanisms revision has taken over!!!!

    I think you did it a different way, but our answers are close enough for me to think it's ok..

    Here's how I did it..

    Moles S = 64.2 / 32 = 2.00625

    From equation, SO2 is 1:1, therefore moles SO2 =2.00625

    Mass SO2 = 2.00625 * (32 + 16 + 16) = 128.4 g

    Its actually really simple...you divide 64.2 by the Ar of sulphur to give the number of moles present. Since there is only the one atom of sulphur in SO2, this means that this will also be the number of moles of SO2 you produce.
    Therefore, simply multiply the number of moles present by the Mr of SO2 and bingo - all yours.
    But the answer you get is still right...thats just a simpler and easier to rationalise method you can use...
