What happens when we pass sulfur vapors through cold water?

You get more or less coarse sulfur powder-slurry.

What is the reaction for it?

Sulfur vapor ( S2 mostly) reacts to form S8 depending on speed of cooling, some S6 might form temporarily

Which type is colloid is this?

Sometimes this might result in a "colloid", but I recommend not to use this outdated word, because so much nonsense was written in the classical days of "colloids".

And why doesn't it form in hot or lukewarm water

Who says/writes this?

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks. I had the doubt on the last one. In the question I read, it was specified COLD water. Just wanted to know what difference would HOT water make? $\endgroup$ – nimish666 Feb 1 '15 at 11:09
