Week 4: September 25-29

The law of conservation of mass: In any physical change or chemical reaction, mass is conserved; mass can be neither created nor destroyed.

Additional Question for the Popcorn Lab:

With that law in mind, explain how the volume of popcorn was able to change.

If we had not used an aluminum cover, the mass of the flask would have decreased after the Zea mays everta had popped. Why would the mass have gone down? Does this disprove the law of conservation of mass?
