From your balanced equation;

2 H2S + 3 O2  :rarrow: 2 SO2 + 2 H2O

for every molecule (and hence mole) of H2S you put in, given excess oxygen, you form one molecule of SO2. So, if you have 9.7 mol of H2S, how many moles of SO2 can you form?

9.7?

Right, so what is the molecular mass of SO2, and given that, and the number of moles, what mass of SO2 can you produce?

64 g mol-1 is the molecular weight, yes, so how much SO2 can you produce?

No. If 1 egg weighs 64g, how many grams does 9.7 eggs weigh?

Not being horrible or anything, but how much maths / chemistry have you done - these sort of problems are reasonably straightforward and, arguably to me, well below undergraduate level.

I am taking an online chemistry course, and I am having trouble with these sorts of problems in general. I can't find any examples anywhere. I wish I knew the method for doing them though.

what are these types of problems called?
