Expert Answer:

these r both allotropes of S  having same chemical prop bt diff physical properties   .rhombic S has crown shaped octahedral crystalsformed by 8 S atoms . it is stable tranparent or pale yellown soluble in organic solvents as CS2 , C6H6 ,CHCl3 etc

monoclinic S differ in packaging of S8 RINGS so has density different from rhombic S .

monoclinic S can b formed from rhombic S ar 95.6ºC  n exist btw 95.6 to 119º C
