Investigate and Identify the Law of Conservation of Mass – I8C
Matter cannot be created or destroyed in an ordinary chemical reaction. To show this all chemical equations must be balanced! When balancing an equation only coefficients can be added or changed. Subscripts cannot be changed! Example: 4Fe + 3O2 → 2Fe2O3 The coefficients are in red. The chemical formula and subscripts are in black.

To balance an equation take an “atom inventory” on both sides of the equation:
___K + ___H2O  ___KOH + ___H2 Reactants Products K: 1 K: 1 H: 2 H: 3 O: 1 O: 1

Next choose coefficients to balance the equation:
_2_K + _2_H2O  _2_KOH + _1_H2 Reactants Products K: K: 1 2 H: H: 3 4 O: O: 1 2

Practice Problems: (All practice problems are from TEA released TAKS Tests)
1. What are the coefficients that will balance this chemical equation? A 2, 1, 1 B 3, 4, 2 C 2, 2, 1 D 4, 3, 2 Answer: C

B The sum of the products’ masses is less than the mass of the CaCO3.
2. The chemical equation shows CaCO3 being heated. Which of these statements best describes the mass of the products if 100 g of CaCO3 is heated? A The difference in the products’ masses is equal to the mass of the CaCO3. B The sum of the products’ masses is less than the mass of the CaCO3. C The mass of each product is equal to the mass of the CaCO3. D The sum of the products’ masses equals the mass of the CaCO3. Answer: D (All practice problems are from TEA released TAKS Tests)

3. Which chemical equation supports the law of conservation of mass?
