Unformatted text preview: In a Chemical Reaction : The number of substances may change and their properties will change but the total amount of matter remains constant. reactant 1 + reactant 2 product total mass total mass = calcium oxide + carbon dioxide calcium carbonate CaO + CO 2 CaCO 3 56.08 g + 44.01 g 100.09 g (Symbols) (Words) (Quantities) Law of Mass Conservation Law of Definite Composition No matter the source, a particular compound is composed of the same elements in the same parts (fractions) by mass.
