If a #5.0*g# mass of calcium carbonate is strongly heated to give a #2.8*g# mass of calcium oxide, and a #2.2*g# mass of carbon dioxide, how does this demonstrate the conservation of mass? How is this represented as an equation?
Is mass balanced in the given equation? We started with a mass of
We can take this further, and investigate the particle nature of calcium carbonate, and we have a molar quantity of
AS in this reaction, and EVERY other chemical reaction EVER performed, mass is conserved.
