Expert Answer:

The law of conservation of mass states that matter is neither created nor destroyed in a chemical reaction (in a nuclear reaction it is a different matter). 
 Everything is made up of matter. Matter occupies as pecific space and has specific mass. Energy is the ability of an object to do work.

It is measured in Joules. It is an established fact that matter and energy are inter changeable and both are conserved during a process.
