Atomic Theory
• Elements (matter) is composed of small, indivisible
particles called atoms.
• Atoms of a given element are identical in mass and
behavior.
• Atoms of different elements differ in mass and
behavior.
• Chemical combination of elements to make different
substances occurs when atoms join together in small
whole number ratios.
• Chemical reactions only rearrange the way the atoms
are combined; the atoms themselves are not
changed
Law of Multiple Proportions (John Dalton)
• When the same two elements combine to
form more than one compound:
the ratios of the mass of one element in the
first compound to its mass in the second
compound, (as it combines with the same
mass of the other element), can always be
expressed as ratios of small whole numbers
• Carbon combines with oxygen to form CO and
CO2 .

Example of the Law of Multiple
Proportions
• That of nitrogen and oxygen forming three
different compounds that contain different
relative amounts of nitrogen and oxygen.
Mass of Nitrogen that
combines with 1 g of Oxygen
• Compound A
1.750 g
• Compound B
0.8750 g
• Compound C
0.4375 g
Example of the Law of Multiple
Proportions continued
The ratios of the masses of nitrogen combining with 1
gram of oxygen in each pair of compound should be
small whole integer number
• A/B = 1.750/0.8750 = 2 for nitrogen
0.8750/0.8750= 1 for nitrogen, a ratio 2:1
• B/C= 0.8750/0.4375 = 2 for nitrogen
0.4375/ 0.4375= 1 for nitrogen, a ratio 2:1
• A/C = 1.750/0.4375 = 4 for nitrogen
0.4375/0.4375= 1 for nitrogen, a ratio 4:1
