Problem 125P

Ethanethiol (C2H6S) is a compound with a disagreeable odor that is used to impart an odor to natural gas. When ethanethiol is burned, the sulfur reacts with oxygen to form SO2. What mass of SO2 forms upon the complete combustion of 28.7 g of ethanethiol?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 125P

Step 1:

 Balance the equation for the combustion reactants to products

2 CH3CH2SH + 9 O2 --> 4 CO2 + 2 SO2 + 6 H2O

Step 2:

Determine the limiting reagent: . In the case of combustion, generally the air is presumed to be in excess (unless otherwise specified) so ethanethiol is the limiting reagent.

Step 3:

Determine moles of the limiting reagent:

The mass of ethanethiol = 28.7g

= = = 0.461 mole
