can someone please explain to me about exactly how they work?

Zn + S -->ZnS
As is, Zinc wants rid of two electrons while Sulphur would like to gain 2. Therefore, Zinc is quite happy to give up its electrons and Sulphur is happy receiving them. When the reaction is complete, you end up with the compound Zinc Sulphide. This is made up of 2+ Zinc ions (lost 2 electrons) and 2- Sulphur ions (gained 2 electrons).
Hope this answers you question
