2 What Proust and Dalton contributed to Modern Atomic Theory

3 Regardless of the amount, a compound is always composed of the same elements in the same proportion by mass.

4 If there is one H 2 O molecule

5 Or many H 2 O molecules

6 The proportion by mass will always be the same! Percent by mass (%) = mass of element x 100 mass of compound

7 Magnesium combines with oxygen to form magnesium oxide. If g of magnesium reacts completely with 6.96 g of oxygen, what is the percent by mass of oxygen in magnesium oxide?

8 The entire sample of magnesium oxide is: g magnesium g oxygen = g magnesium oxide The percent of magnesium in magnesium oxide is: g magnesium_____ X 100 = 60% g magnesium oxide The percent of oxygen in magnesium oxide is: 6.96 g oxygen_______ X 100 = 40% g magnesium oxide

9 Your answer should equal 100% of the sample: 60% + 40%= 100%
