Law of Multiple Proportions: When two or more elements combine to form two or more compounds. The mass of one element combines with its partners in fixed amounts and are related by simple integer ratios. Atomic Theory: - Elements are comprised of atoms that are identical - Atoms of same elements have the same mass - No loss/gain of atoms (mass) during a chemical process Volume: - 1 liter of oxygen + 2 liters of hydrogen yield 2 liters of water vapor
