How does the law of conservation of matter apply to chemical reactions?

  • chem -

    The mass of reactants equals the mass of products.

    Actually, there is a very small difference, almost too small to measure, due to the theory or relativity. There IS a mass loss equal to the energy release divided by c^2.
