    Law of Conservation of Mass

    The Law of Conservation of Mass states that matter is not created or destroyed—it only changes form.

    Law of Definite Proportions

    The Law of Definite Proportions states that a compound will always contain the same ratio (of either atoms or mass) of the same elements.
