Problem Details

Sulfur trioxide, SO3, is produced in enormous quantities each year for use in the synthesis of sulfuric acid.

S(s) + O2(g) → SO2(g)

2SO2(g) + O2(g) → 2SO3(g)

What volume of O2(g) at 350.°C and a pressure of 5.25 atm is needed to completely convert 5.00 g sulfur to sulfur trioxide?
