I have been given a situational problem, and the teacher is not willing to help. He is always like that, he says its part of the learning experience.
Anyways, I am not out here to complain.
After several hours of research, I am still not able to understand what Casx is. (Calcium Polysulfide)
What I want to know is, what is this chemical? What is its atomic weight, density? How would I apply it to a chemical equation such as :
Hcl + Casx --> ? What would the answer be, the closest I came to was Hcl + Cas -> H2S + CaCl2, which is NOT the same equation.( OR is it?, can I just use that?)
For my situational problem, there is a part where the 2 liquids leak(quantified) and mix together in a room to produce the gas. I need these basic understandings above to be able to deduce the ppm of H2S.
What I plan on doing is: (Ultimate goal : Find ppm of leaked gas within the volume in air)
1. Using a balanced equation
(This is where I am stuck, because I don't know how to work with CaSx), determine the amount of H2S in moles.
How would I find the ppm, I am allowed to use other information such as density.
The concentrations and amounts are: Hcl= 3.6L of 35% in water, and CaSx-calcium polysulfides 20% in water)
Thank you in advance!
