compounds formed may be different.

N 2O 3 28 48 14 24

Thus, Fixing the mass of nitrogen as 14 parts, ratio of masses of oxygen is 8:16:24:32:40 or 1:2:3:4:5, which is a simple
ratio.

It was proposed by Richter. The ratio of weights of two It was proposed by Gay Lussac in 1808. It states that
elements X and Y which combine with a fixed weight under similar conditions of T and P, whenever gases
