Three Important Laws
Law of conservation of mass (Lavoisier):
Mass is neither created nor destroyed
Law of definite proportion (Proust):
A given compound always contains exactly the
same proportion of elements by mass
Lawof multiple proportions (Dalton):
When two elements form a series of compounds,
the ratios of the masses of the second element
that combine with 1 gram of the first element can
always be reduced to small whole numbers
Lavoisier: The Law of
Conservation of Mass
Early 1700s Lavoisier: Law of
Conservation of Mass
During a chemical change,
matter is neither created nor
destroyed.

When 0.0976 g of magnesium was heated in air,
0.1618 g of magnesium oxide (MgO) was
produced. What is the mass of oxygen needed to
produce 0.1618 g MgO?
Using the LCM:
Total mass reactants = total mass products
mass of Mg + mass O = mass of MgO
0.0976 g Mg + mass O = 0.1618 g MgO
mass O = 0.1618 g - 0.0976 = 0.0642 g O 0.0642 g O
1799, Proust: Law of Definite
Proportions
A compound always contains the
same elements in certain definite
proportions.
Proust: The Law of
Definite Proportions
LAWOF DEFINITE PROPORTIONS LAWOF DEFINITE PROPORTIONS
In a compound, the ratios by mass of the
elements in that compound are fixed
independent of the origins or preparation of
that compound. A compound is unique
because of the specific arrangement and
weights of the elements which make up
that compound.
That is, elements combine in whole
numbers. Also it is not possible to have a
compound with portion an atom.

When 0.0976 g of magnesium was heated in air,
0.1618 g of magnesium oxide (MgO) was
produced.

b) Using onl y LDP, what mass of oxygen was

Connecting Mass to Moles
One of the greatest challenges early chemists
faced was trying to find a way to connect the
mass of a substance to the number of particles
in the sample.
It was determined that elementary particles
combined in fixed ratios by weight.
Connecting Mass to Moles
This led Dalton to the atomic model of matter
Example: The mass ratio of oxygen to
hydrogen in water is 8:1
This does not tell us how many atoms of each
element are involved
It could tell us this if we knew the relative mass of
each kind of atom
Relative Mass
To assign relative masses to elements it is
necessary to know that the samples being
compared have the same number of particles
If particles are all the same size, the same size
sample would have the same number of
particles
If particles are different sizes, the same size
sample would have different numbers of
particles
Relative Mass
At the time, chemists did not know which was
true and tended to think the latter was more
likely
Example: A bucket of baseballs has fewer balls
that an identical bucket of golf balls
If this is true in the macroscopic world, why
wouldnt it be true in the sub-microscopic one?
Relative Mass
Consider earlier this year when we studied
density: was iron more dense than aluminum
because iron had more particles per given
volume than aluminum or because irons
individual particles were more massive than
aluminums? Could it be some combination of
both?
Relative Mass
The truth is, based on the experiments we
conducted earlier in the year, we couldnt say
which was true.
Daltondid not know what was true during his
time either.
Since the mass of individual atoms could not be
determined, a system of atomic masses had to
be determined by comparison.
Relative Mass
To determine a system of masses by
comparison, one element would have to be
chosen as the basis of comparison for all
others
Dalton chose hydrogen and assigned it a mass
of 1.
Relative Mass
To find the mass of another element like
oxygen:
Compare the masses of equal number of
oxygen and hydrogen atoms OR
Find the combining masses of oxygen and
hydrogen in water
Relative Mass
Dalton thought that the former approach was
invalid because he thought identical volumes of
hydrogen and oxygen gases would have
different numbers of particles
He thought the latter was valid but did not take
into account that it is valid ONLY if the ratio of
atomic combination is known
Reactions of Gases
Research conducted by Gay-Lussac
suggested that equal volumes of gases, at the
same temperature and pressure, contain equal
numbers of particles
Reactions of Gases
Gay-Lussac noted that gases
appear to react in simple integer
ratios
Example: Two volumes of
hydrogen reacted with one volume
of oxygen to produce two volumes
of water
These findings appeared to
volumes of gases have equal
numbers of particles
Reactions of Gases
Why? Well, if water is was H
2
O,
then two volumes of hydrogen and
one volume of oxygen should
make one volume of water
+ + =
Reactions of Gases
Gay-Lussacs law that equal
volumes of gases have equal
numbers of particles and Daltons
atomic theory did not seem to be
compatible
In 1811, Avogadro wrote a paper
that reconciled the two
Equal volumes of gases have
equal numbers of molecules
These molecules can be split into
half-molecules during chemical
reactions
That molecules of elemental gases
could contain more than a single
atom
Two volumes of hydrogen react
with one volume of oxygen to
produce two volumes of water
when hydrogen and oxygen can be
split into half-molecules!
+ + = +
Hypothesis, we can compare the
mass of various gases and deduce
the relative mass of the molecules
To do this, we pick a weighable
amount of the lightest element
(how about 1.0 g?) then use mass
ratios to assign atomic masses to
the other elements
Implications
If two volumes of hydrogen
combine with one volume of
oxygen gas, it is reasonable to
assume that two molecules of
hydrogen are reacting with each
molecule of oxygen
The word chosen to represent the
standard weighable amount of
stuff, the mole, comes from the
Latin mole cula or little lump
