What are the three most important laws that led to the development of the atomic theory?
law conservation of mass, law of definite proportions, and law of multiple proportions
Antoine Lavoisier formulated the Law of Conservation of Mass, which states the following:
in a chemical reaction, matter is neither created or destroyed
What is the law of definite proportions?
All samples of a given compound, regardless of their source or how they were prepared have the same proportions of their constituent elements (sometimes called the law of constant composition)
A compound of N and H contains 14g of N for every 3 g of H. What is the mass ratio?
4.7 : 1
What is the law of multiple proportions?
When two elements (call them A and B) form two different compounds, the masses of element B that combine with 1 g of element A can be expressed as a ratio of small whole numbers.
