Law of Conservation
of Mass

It states that “matter can neither be created nor destroyed”.

2.Law of Definite Proportions

It states that “a
given compound always
contains exactly the same
proportion of elements by
weights”.

3.Law of Multiple Proportions

According to this law “if two elements can
combine to form more than one compound, the
masses of one element that combine with a
fixed mass of the other element, are in the
ratio of small whole numbers”.

4. Gay Lussac’s law of combining volumes
The law states that “when gaseous reactants combine to give gaseous products they do so in volume
which bear a simple whole number ratio to one another and to the volume of products, provided the
volume are measured under the similar conditions of temperature and pressure”.
Explanation:
1. H 2 ( g ) + C l 2 ( g ) → 2H C l ( g )
1 Volume of H 2 combines with 1 volume of Cl 2 to give 2 volumes of HCl gas. The ratio is 1:1 :2 this
is a simple whole number ratio.

5. Avogadro law
In 1811 Avogadro stated a law which can explain gay lussac’s law of combining volumes. Avogadro
law states that “ equal volume of different gases measured under the same number of molecules”.
23
If 22.4 litre of CO 2 at STP (at 273K and 101.3 k pa pressure) contain 6 . 022×10 molecules, then
23
22.4 litres of oxygen at STP also contain 6 . 022×10 molecules.

Dalton’s atomic theory
In 1808 Dalton put forwards a new system of chemical philosophy called ‘’ Dalton’s atomic theory”
This theory was proposed to explain the observed laws of chemical combination and the other known
facts.

The Postulates of Dalton’s atomic theory
1. Matter is composed of very minute indivisible particles called atoms
2. All the atoms of the same element have identical properties like mass, size, shape etc and the
atoms of different elements differ in mass, shape, size etc.

Atomic mass of oxygen is 16. Formula mass is “the sum of atomic masses of all the atoms in the formula unit in an ionic crystal” . The molecular mass is “the ratio of the mass of one molecule of the given substance to one-tweifth the mass of an atom of c-12”. It is convenient to define atomic masses with respect to the mass of some reference element fixed as standard. Atoms can neither be created nor be destroyed in a chemical reactions. 3. In this system c-12 is assigned a mass of 12 atomic mass units (amu). Molecular mass A molecule is the smallest particle of a substance (an element or compound). “ One amu is defined as the mass equal to one-twelfth the mass of one C-12 atom” 1 amu = 1. An atom is the smallest particle that can take part in chemical reactions.Molecular mass is calculated by adding the atomic masses of all the atoms of various elements present in a molecule. simple whole number ratio to give ‘compound atoms’ called molecules’ 5. They are indestructible. the cations (+) and the anions(-) are arranged alternatively in a regular pattern. The scale in which the relative atomic masses of different atoms are expressed is called is ‘amu scale’ or unified mass scale (u). 6×10−27 kg . 4. For example the mass of an atom of hydrogen is 1. Its mass is very small. So the mass of a molecule is determined relative to the mass of C 12 isotope. Atoms of different elements combine in a fixed. mass of one molecule of the given substance 1 the mass of an atom of C −12 Molecular mass= 12th Molecular mass is a number which indicates how many times mass of the given molecule is heavier 1 than 12th the mass of an atom of C-12. mass of an atom an element Atomicmass= 1 x mass of an atom of C −12 12 Atomic mass of an element is a number which expresses how many times an atom of that element is heavier than one-twelfth the mass of an atom of C-12. It is not possible to determine actual mass of a molecule.A molecule is also very small particle. In 1961 the international union of chemists selected C-12 as standard for atomic masses. Which is capable of independent existence. 66056×10−24 g Atomic mass of an element is defined as “the ratio of mass of an atom of the element to one-twelfth the mass of an atom of C-12” . Molecular mass of methane(CH4)=Atomic mass of C+ 4(atomic mass of H)= 1× 12 + 4× 1 = 16 amu Formula mass In an ionic compound. Atomic mass and molecular mass An atom is smallest particle of an element which may not have independent existence. It means that 1 atom of oxygen is 16 times heavier than one-twelfth the mass of an atom of C-12.

Thus 1 mole of Al ( 27g ofAl ) contains 6 . 022×1023 atoms of Al 1 mole of Na+ contains 6 . Molar mass or gram mole of sodium hydroxide is 40g. 2 moles of SO 2 +1 mole of O 2 combine to give 2 moles of SO 2 +1 mole of O 2 23 combine to give 2×6 . . 2S O +O → 2S O Let us consider the reaction. “Empirical formula gives the relative number of atoms of each element present in the compound”. Thus it follows that the mass of 22. 022×1023 ions of +Na Example: 2S O 2 +O2⇌ 2S O 3 2 molecules of SO 2 combine with one molecule of O 2 to give 2 molecules of sulphur trioxide. Percentage composition Percentage composition of a compound can be obtained by qualitative and quantitative analysis. C and H atoms are in the ratio 1: 1 So the empirical formula for benzene. By analysis. 023× 1023 molecules of SO 3 . Molecular formulae Molecular formula gives the actual number of atoms of each element present in the molecule of the given compound. 022×1023 particles or entities. 44 g of CO 2 at STP occupies 22. The percentage composition refers to the amount of various constituent present per hundred parts by mass of the given substance. 022×10 molecule of O 2 combine to 23 give 2×6 . m ass of elem ent x 100 Mass of an elem ent in a compound= m ass of the com pound Empirical and molecular formulae: Empirical formula: is the simplest formula of a substance. it has been found that in benzene. is CH. hydrogen and oxygen and oxygen is 2”1. Mole concept A mole is defined as “ the amount of the substance that contains as many elementary particles as the number of atoms of carbon present in 12g of C-12 isotope” In generals ‘one mole’ is the quantity of a substance containing Avogadro number of particles-atoms or molecules or ions.Formula mass of N aO H = atom icm assofN a+ atom icm assofO + atom icm assofH = 23 + 16 + 1 = 40 amu Molar mass of gram molecular mass or gram mole Molar mass is defined as “the quantity of the substance equal to molecular mass in grams” The molecular mass of sodium hydroxide is 40.23×10 molecules of SO 2 +1 ×6 . 2 2 3 It implies that. So empirical formula of water is H 2 O . the ratio of the number of atoms of carbon. 0 . Just like we use the term dozen to represent 12. we use a ‘mole’ to represent 6 . Example : 1 mole of CO 2 =44g . Similarly gram mole of sulphuric acid is 98g.. 4 dm 3 of any gas at STP is its gram-molar mass. Similarly in water.4 dm3.

The Formulae or symbol of the products are written on the right side of the arrow mark. thus by knowing mass of Mg and O 2 reacted. 2 moles of Mg combines with 1 mole of O 2 to give 2 moles of magnesium oxide. molality. On the other hand. 2Mg +O 2 → 2MgO This equation implies that 1. Molality (m): Molality of a solution is defined as the number of moles of the solute present in one kilogram of solvent. There are several ways of expressing the concentrations of solutions. Mass percent. Eg: A solution containing 10g of solute present in 100 g solution.

This reaction is represented by its following chemical equation.it depends on temperature. The atoms on either side are balanced introducing suitable coefficients. mole fraction and parts per million (ppm). 2. the volume of oxygen required for the complete burning of Mg can be calculated. a solution in which a relatively small amount of the solute is dissolved in the same amount of the solvent is said to be a dilute solution. Example: Magnesium burns in oxygen to give magnesium oxide. These substances may be solids. is said to be a 10% solution of sodium chloride. gases or a mixture of them. This forms the bases for stoichiometric calculations. By knowing the mass of Mg reacted. Concentration or strength of solutions: A majority of chemical reactions occur in solutions. normality.

The ratio of the number of moles of that constituent to the total number of moles of all constituents in the mixture. For example: to express hardness of water and concentration of pollutant in a sample of water. then it only gets reacted completely and excess quantity of the other reactant remains unreached.
