Expert Answer:

Law of conservation of maass is a fundamental principle of classical physics that states 'matter cannot be created or destroyed in an isolated system'.


During any physical or chemical change, the total mass of the products remains equal to the total mass of the reactants.


On heating, 10 g CaCO3 produces 5.6 g CaO and 4.4 g CO2.

Mass of the reactant is 10 g and mass of the product is 5.6 + 4.4 g = 10 g.

Thus, mass of the reactant = mass of the product whicg proves law of conservation of mass. 

CaCO3 → CaO + CO2

10 g           5.6 g     4.4 g
