SULFUR Burning By: zach and Peter

This is our chemical equation before it was balanced.
This is how we showed our work in balancing our equation
This is our chemical reaction balanced out.

-During this reaction sulfur reacts with oxygen to form sulfur trioxide gas (SO3).

-This reaction is an example of synthesis, and we know this because, like the definition, two smaller products (S + O2) combine to create a more complex substance (SO3)

The definition of synthesis is when two simpler products combine to make a more complex compound or chemical.

-An exothermic reaction is a reaction where energy is released, more bonds are created than lost, and the temperature rises. During our reaction, solids can turn to liquids, and liquids can turn into gases. This happens because the reaction is very toxic and the sulfur burns quickly. Our reaction is exothermic.

This picture is describing that once the reactants are forming the products, they are releasing heat to do so. This is a good example of an exothermic reaction.

-An endothermic reaction is the opposite, in which the temperature drops because of the bonds being broken at a rapid rate.

-This reaction is an acid

SULFUR TRIOXIDE NOT SO FUN FACTS

Colorless odorless gas.

Can be represented as a solid, liquid, or gas.

Melting point is 62* C.

Boiling point is 45*C.

This product and reaction is extremely toxic and can cause eye and skin burns, also the vapor is toxic by inhalation.
