A. The law of conservation of mass was broken in this experiment because the mass of the solid decreased.
B. The law of conservation of mass was not broken because the mass before heating was greater than the mass after heating
C. The law of conservation of mass was not broken because the solid was heated in an open container, allowing gases to escape.
D. The law of conservation of mass was broken in this experiment because the solid was heated in an open container, allowing gases to escape.

How can the law of conservation of mass apply to a burning log, if all that remains of it is ash?
A. The ash has the same mass as the log, although a large percentage of it blows away.
B. The law of conservation of mass applies to changes of state but not to chemical reactions.
C. The law of conservation of mass applies to substitution and displacement reactions, but not to combustion reactions.
D. The masses of the gases released into the air plus the mass of ash equal the mass of the log before burning.

Mariana conducted an experiment where she burned a 5 g strip of magnesium metal in an open flame. The result was a 3.5 g white ash collected in a crucible, a bright white flame, and smoke. Was the law of conservation of matter upheld in Mariana's experiment?
A. yes, because the missing mass was trapped by the closed system
B. no, because the magnesium was burned so mass was not lost
C. no, because mass decreased after the magnesium was burned
D. yes, because the missing mass was released as smoke
