Do Now: When water changes from solid to liquid to gas, is
the mass of the water ZERO? Could I gather it all back
together?

The Law of Conservation of
Mass
In the late eighteenth century, Antoine
Lavoisier, a French chemist, recognized
the importance of accurate
measurements. He extensively studied
and explained the nature of combustion.
He found out that combustion involved
reaction with oxygen.
Law of Conservation of Mass
Total mass of reactants
=
Total mass of products Antoine Lavoisier
Mass is neither
created nor
destroyed during
chemical or physical
reactions.
Just like we did with the vinegar and
baking soda in a balloon!
We measured the mass of the reactants
(vinegar and baking soda) and then, after
the reaction took place, we measured the
mass of the products (reactants + carbon
dioxide)
The Law of
Conservation of Matter
So we know that during a chemical reaction, matter
cannot be created or destroyed.

Even though the matter may change from one state of
matter to another(from liquid-solid, gas) (or just liquid to
gas), the same number of atoms exists before and after
the change takes place!
Since the overall mass of the
matter does not change
The mass of the reactants the substances there
before the reaction occurs must equal the mass of the
product the substances there after the reaction takes
place.

Oxygen, as a product, must be multiplied by 2.
A coefficient is placed in front of the
compounds that contains O.

When a coefficient is added you must multiply
all atoms in the compound by this number.
Redo the inventory
After redoing the inventory, add coefficients
to balanced other atoms. With each additional
coefficient the inventory must be updated.

So: Chemical equations are balanced, when the numbers and

If we know the mass of the tin fluoride, can we figure out how
much hydrogen was produced?
Subtract the mass of one product from the total mass.
