2 The components of matter Substance: either an element or a compound Element : a substance consisting of one type of atom macroscopic properties derive from type of atom properties of each element are unique Compound : 2 or more elements bonded together elements in compound are present in fixed parts by mass Mixture : contains substances that are physically intermingled composition not fixed components can be separated by physical change

3 Observations that led to an atomic view of matter The following are considered laws : Mass conservation : Matter is neither created nor destroyed Definite composition (or constant composition) : For any compound, no matter what its source: composed of the same elements in the same parts (or fractions) by mass; e.g., calcium carbonate in chalk, marble, seashells, coral, etc. Multiple proportions: B combines with a fixed amount of A in proportions of small whole numbers.
