What is the balanced equation for the combustion of sulfur?

Answer

A combustion reaction involves the interaction of an element or compound with an oxidizing element. Typically, the oxidizing element is oxygen itself, which is typically reflected in the balanced equation for the combustion reaction of each element or compound. The balanced equation for the combustion of sulfur is: 2 H2S + 3 O2 ⟶ 2 H2O + 2 SO2. With these coefficients, matter has been conserved; on each side of the equation, there are four hydrogens, two sulfurs, and six oxygens.
