We are asked how many liters of SO2(g) at STP when 5 g CS2(g) are used.
CS2(g) + 3 O2(g) → CO2(g) + 2 SO2(g)
It is stated that 5 g of CS2(g) are used so we assume that O2 is in excess.
Given this reaction: CS2(g) + 3O2(g) => CO2(g) + 2SO2(g), how many liters of SO2(g) at STP are produced if 5 g of CS2(g) are used?
A. 4.17 L
B. 2.57 L
C. 5.78 L
D. 3.3 L
E. 2.94 L
