Some Basic Concepts in Chemistry
Definition of mole:
One mole is a collection of that many entities as there are number of atoms exactly in 12 gm of C -12 isotopes.
Or 1 mole = Collection of 6.02×1023species
1 mole of atoms is also termed as 1 gm-atom, 1 mole of ions is termed as 1 gm-ion and 1 mole of molecule termed as 1 gm-molecule.
Methods of Calculations of mole
a) If no. of some species is given, then no, of moles
b) If weight of a given species is given, then no of moles
c) If volume of a gas is given along with its temperature
Where R=0.0821 lit-atm/mol-K (When P is in atmosphere an V is in litre.)
1 mole of any gas at STP (0℃ &1 bar) occupies 22.7 litres.
1 mole of any gas at STP (0ᵒ C & 1 atm) occupies 22.4 litres.
Atom: Atom is smallest particle which cannot be divided into its constituents.
Atomic weight: It is the weight of an atom relative to one twelvth of weight of 1 atom of C-12
Laws of chemical combination
(a) Law of conservation of mass [Lavoisier]
In chemical change total mass remains conserved i.e. mass before the reaction is always equal to mass after the reaction.
1 mole ½ mole 1 mole
Mass before the reaction=1×2+1/2×32=18gm
Mass after the reaction=1×18=18 gm
(b) Law of constant composition [Proust]
All chemical compounds are found to have constant composition irrespective of their method of preparation or sources.
⇒ In H2O, Hydrogen & oxygen combine in 2: 1 molar ratio, this ratio remains constant
Whether it is Tap water, river water or seawater or produced by any chemical reaction.
(c) Law of multiple proportional [Dalton]
When one element combines with the other element to form two or more different compounds, the mass of one element, which combines with a constant mass of the other bear a simple ratio to one another.
(d) Law of reciprocal proportions[Richter]
When two elements combine separately with definite mass of a third element, then the ratio of their masses in which they do so is either the same or some whole number multiple of the ratio in which they combine with each other. This law can be understood easily with the help of the following examples.
By learning in meritnation I got B2, but by learning topper learning I got A1... so which is the best. This is awesome to learn and easy to study science. At 1st term I got B2 but at 2nd term I got A1.

Excellent Faculty! I have been studying from topperlearning.com since Class IX and have consistently scored above 90% in my these 4 years.I studied throughout nights to achieve my goal.Moreover, becoming Rank 1 on topperlearning boosted my confidence to high skies.Thank you topperlearning, without you I would not have been able to score 91.2% in Class XII Boards(2015) and CGPA 9.8 in my Class X Boards(2013). Hope that topperlearning will continue to help students throughout India, creating a brighter future for them. Regards, Vivek Saahil

I like topper learning because I can understand the level I have prepared for my subject and study better.

Topperlearning is really a very good helping tool. Every time I had doubts related to any concept in PCM I posted it and immediately my problem was solved. It also helped me in scoring good ranks in competitive exams too. The topper faculty is very good. The teachers explained each and every concept in depth. My favourite teacher is Physics teacher

We all know that audio-visual medium is a better way of explaining and educating the students. It not only makes learning fun but also gives the message more clearly and precisely. Topper is a very good amalgamation of good teaching and good learning methods.
