How do you determine the starting mass before an experiment when given the collected mass of 0.9964g?


Expert Answer

Step 1

A chemical reaction refers to the process in which one or more substances also known as the reactants combine to form one or more different substances which are called as the products.

Step 2

While writing a chemical equation, reactants are written on the left hand side of the equation while the products are written on the right hand side of the equation.

Step 3

The law of conservation of mass states that in a given isolated system, matter can neither be destroyed nor be created. According to this law, in a given chemical reaction, the mass...
