The physical changes can
be explained better
The processes in Chemistry

Matter can be classified ...
Matter is not created nor destroyed.
In a chemical reaction the total mass
By measuring the mass of each component, we
can control the ratio in which they combine
From macroscopic measures (mass, ratios)
we can reach conclusions about the
microscopic world (how matter is made)
Combination of elements at any ratio
means that matter is continuous, without
Combination at fixed ratios means that matter
is discontinuous, made of smaller units.
The knowledge of the
structure of matter can help
explain the nature and
improve our lives.
