The Law of Conservation of Mass
In a chemical reaction, the total mass of the reactants, is always equal to the total mass of the
products.
This law ties in well with the atomic theory, which states that atoms are never created or
destroyed. In a chemical reaction the atoms and molecules are simply rearranged.
This law of conservation of mass however does not apply to nuclear reactions, because there Is
some loss of mass: the mass is changed into energy. This was first suggested by Albert Einstein
in his famous equation:
E =MC2
(E Is Energy, M is Mass, C2 is a large number) A very tiny amount of mass is equal to a very large
amount of energy
In an open system some of the mass seems to disappear, when it is in the form of a gas.
Other scientists followed up on the law of conservation of mass by stating the ...
Law of Definite Composition
Compounds are pure substances that contain two or more elements combined together in fixed (or
definite) proportions.
Water is an example of this law. Pure water always contains 11% Hydrogen and 89% Oxygen.

Law of Multiple Proportions states that the masses of one element, which combine with a fixed
mass of the second element, are in a ratio of whole numbers.
Pure substances have constant composition and properties. An unknown substance can be
identified by measuring a property of the substance (eg. density) and compare it to known values
of other substances. If the test property matches a known value, it is likely that substance, because
each substance has its own distinguishing properties unique to that substance.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
