# Problem: When hydrogen sulfide gas is bubbled into a solution of sodium hydroxide, the reaction forms sodium sulfide and water.How many grams of sodium sulfide are formed if 1.60 g of hydrogen sulfide is bubbled into a solution containing 2.13 g of sodium hydroxide, assuming that the sodium sulfide is made in 93.0 % yield?

Reactants:

hydrogen sulfide → H2S
sodium hydroxide → NaOH

Products:

sodium sulfide  → Na2S
water  → H2O

Balanced reaction:   H2S + 2 NaOH → Na2S + 2 H2O

Calculate theoretical yield:

Na2S from H2S:

molar mass Na2S = 78.04 g/mol
molar mass H2S = 34.08 g/mol ###### Problem Details
