Most of the sulfur used in the United States is chemically
Last updated: 10/28/2022
Most of the sulfur used in the United States is chemically synthesized from hydrogen sulfide gas recovered from natural gas wells. In the first step of this synthesis, called the Claus process, hydrogen sulfide gas is reacted with dioxygen gas to produce gaseous sulfur dioxide and water. Suppose a chemical engineer studying a new catalyst for the Claus reaction finds that 576. liters per second of dioxygen are consumed when the reaction is run at 158. "C and the dioxygen is supplied at 0.95 atm. Calculate the rate at which sulfur dioxide is being produced. Give your answer in kilograms per second. Be sure your answer has the correct number of significant digits. 0- X ?
