Problem 138

When powdered zinc is heated with sulfur, a violent reaction occurs, and zinc sulfide forms:
\mathrm{Zn}(s)+\mathrm{S}_{8}(s) \longrightarrow \mathrm{ZnS}(s)[\text { unbalanced }]
Some of the reactants also combine with oxygen in air to form zinc oxide and sulfur dioxide. When 83.2 $\mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{Zn}$ reacts with 52.4 $\mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{S}_{8}, 104.4 \mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{ZnS}$ forms.
(a) What is the percent yield of ZnS?
(b) If all the remaining reactants combine with oxygen, how many grams of each of the two oxides form?
