Question and answer
How do the particles behave in the reaction between iron and sulphur?
The iron atoms absorb enough energy to lose three electrons each and become iron(III) ions. The octa-atomic sulphur molecules absorb enough energy to become sulphur atoms. [ These atoms each gain two electrons to become sulphide ions with a -2 charge each. Since electrons are conserved, 1½ times as many sulphur atoms so react as do iron atoms. These ions now form a solid and give up energy. The
overall process gives up energy (enough so that some of the solid goes off as a smoke). source; yahoo ]
