# In any chemical reaction, what are the quantities that are preserved?

Mar 29, 2017

$\text{(i) mass, and (ii) charge.............}$ ARE ABSOLUTELY CONSERVED.......

#### Explanation:

And every chemical reaction EVER performed conforms to this principle. Mass and charge are conserved.

See this this old answer for further details. Very early on in the study of chemistry, we try to develop the idea of:

$\text{GARBAGE IN EQUALS GARBAGE OUT.}$

In nucular reactions is mass conserved?
