Lime sulphur question

#1  Postby Ecce Feles » Oct 09, 2010 12:22 am

It's a relief to know of a place frequented by people who actually know something about chemistry :thumbup:

Sadly I am an ignoramus, and I need to know the (approximate) concentration of lime sulfur in a 10 litre solution made by mixing:
0.9 kg calcium oxide
2 kg sulphur
10 l water, and enough water is added during boiling to make sure there is always 10 l of the solution

Many thanks!

Since lime sulphur is not a substance with a defined formula (see here), the term "concentration" cannot be applied.
