    @KimberNicoleee law of conservation of mass says if you start out with say a certain nubmber of atoms of hydrogen you should have the same amount when the reaction is over. because mass can neither be created nor destroyed.

    Remember in a chemical reaction bonds are being broken and formed, but mass is constant. you aren't losing mass.
