2.1. Elements and atoms are described by Dalton’s atomic theory 3 Chemical Laws The law of conservation of mass - in a chemical reaction, the mass of the reactants (starting materials) will equal the mass of resulting products Implication: reactions involve the re-organization of materials. The law of definite proportions - the ratio of masses of each element is fixed for a given compound Implication: Each atom has a fixed specific mass, thus in unique combinations, the mass ratio is specific

2.1. Elements and atoms are described by Dalton’s atomic theory 6 Dalton’s Atomic Theory (Cont.): In any sample of a pure element, all the atoms are identical in mass and other properties. The atoms of different elements differ in mass and other properties. In a given compound the constituent atoms are always present in the same fixed numerical ratio. NaCl has a 1:1 atom ratio on the atomic level and larger
