    Law of Conservation of Mass
  2. States that a chemical compound contains the same elements in exactly the same proportions by mass regardless of the size of the sample pr source of the compound
    Law of Definite Proportions
  3. States if two or more different compounds are composed of the same two elements, then the ratio of the masses of the second element combined with a certain mass of the first element is always a ratio of small whole numbers.
    Law of Multiple Proportions
  4. What are the five key points in Dalton's atomic theory?
    • 1. All matter is composed of atoms.
    • 2. Atoms of a given element are identical in size, mass, and other properties; atoms of different elements differ in those properties.
    • 3. Atoms cannot be subdivided, created, or destroyed.
    • 4. Atoms of different elements combine in simple whole-number ratios to form chemical compounds.
    • 5. In chemical reactions, atoms are combined, separated, or rearranged.
  5. The smallest particle of an element that retains the chemical properties of that element.
