Flashcards in Reacting Masses Deck (4):
1

What dies the mass of reactants equal?

Mass of reactants = Mass of products

2

What is the mass of the product formed directly proportional to?

The mass of limiting reactant used

3

Explain why mass is conversed in chemical reactions

Because mass is never lost of gained in chemical reactions. So the total mass of products at the end of the reaction is equal to the total mass of the reactants at the beginning.

4

What is the total mass of reactants at the start of a reaction equal to?

The total mass of reactants at the start of a reaction is equal to the total mass of products made which is called the principle of conservation of mass
