Silver sulfide, the tarnish on silverware, comes from the reaction of silver metal with hydrogen sulfide (H2S).The unbalanced equation is:
Ag + H2S + O2 --> Ag2S + H2O Unbalanced
If the reaction was used intentionally to prepare Ag2S, how many grams would be formed from 496 g of Ag, 80.0 g of H2S, and excess O2 if the reaction takes place in 90% yield? (LO 3.9)
(a) 525 g
(b) 1139 g
(c) 583 g
