    I have the questions in the attachment

    22a) asks to write and balance word and chemical equation of the burning of carbon and burning of sulfur

    for carbon

    C+O2---> C02

    for sulfur




    do these equations make sense?

    Each of the ones you have mentioned is balanced.
    Why did you pick SO3 as the end product for burning Sulphur, might not there be SO2 present?
    Similarly, will there be any Carbon monoxide , CO, produced?
    Burning conditions may prevent/minimise both of those.
