Law of Conservation of Mass (LCM). Law of conservation of mass – states that mass is neither created nor destroyed during chemical reactions or physical changes. Reactant – substance that undergoes a reaction. Product – a new substance formed when reactants undergo chemical change.

Law of Conservation of Mass (LCM)
Balanced equation - An equation for a chemical reaction in which the number of atoms for each element in the reaction and the total charge are the same for both the reactants and the products. In other words, the mass and the charge are balanced on both sides of the reaction.
Coefficients – a number placed in front of the parts of a chemical equation to indicate how many are involved ; always a positive whole number.
Chemical equation - A symbolic representation of what happens when chemicals come in contact with one another. A balanced chemical equation shows how many of what molecules react, how many of what molecules result, and sometimes the state of the substances.
LCM – in chemical reactions, you always end up with the same amount of stuff you start with.
“Stuff” – very scientific could be atoms or mass.
What is the formula for aluminum chloride?
What is the formula for copper chloride?
What will happen if I drop aluminum into a copper chloride solution?
Write the chemical reaction…
CuCl2 + Al → AlCl3 + Cu
Do you notice anything?!
Balance the chemical reaction…
3CuCl2 + Al → AlCl3 + Cu
3CuCl2 + Al → 2AlCl3 + Cu
3CuCl2 + Al → 2AlCl3 + 3Cu
3CuCl2 + 2Al → 2AlCl3 + 3Cu
