# Law of conservation of Mass

Antoine Lavoisier gave the first law of chemical combination That is law of conservation of mass in 1789.

“The law of conservation of mass means that in chemical reactions the total mass of
products is equal to the total mass of the reactant . There is no change of mass during the chemical reactions.”

Antoine Lavoisier state that “Mass can neither be created nor be destroyed.”

Chemical reactions occur everywhere from your body to sun. When two or more substance chemically combine to form entirely different products.

Example:

For example If we prepared pancake then we need ingredients that is 150 gm flour, two
whole eggs that is 150gm 650 gm milk , 50 gm sugar, the total mass of the ingredient is 1kg and after prepared pancake then we took weight the pancake, pancake also a 1kg.

So, we conclude that the weight or mass of the ingredient or reactant is equal to pancake that is product.

• When sodium hydroxide react with hydrochloric acid to give new products that is
common salt ( sodium chloride) and water.

1) What is law of chemical combination?

Answer: The chemical combination is that “A chemical compounds is made of
same or different elements or combine with same. Or different elements in a fixed
proportion or ratio by mass.” or

A chemical reactions in a process in which one or more substances that is reactant chemically combine together and converted to one or more new substance that is product.

2) What is law of conservation of mass?

Answer: The law of conservation of mass means that in chemical reactions the
total mass of products is equal to the total mass of the reactant . There is no
change of mass during the chemical reactions.”

3) Who proposed the law of conservation of mass?

Answer: The law of conservation of mass proposed by Antoine Lavoisier in 1789.

4) Write the state of law of conservation of mass?

Answer: Antoine Lavoisier state that “Mass can neither be created nor be
destroyed.”

5) Give the example of law of conservation of mass?

Answer: For example 12 gm carbon consume 32 gm of oxygen during combustion .
Ans form exactly 44 gm of carbon dioxide . The total mass of reactant that is carbon
and oxygen is equal to total mass of products that is carbon dioxide.
