Hello students My name is Antoine Lavoisier and I was a French chemist during the 18th century Chemical revolution. I was born August 26, 1743 in Paris France and died May 8, 1794 In Paris . I was brought here from the past to tell you my contributions in understanding the Atom. Now lets go back in time
this is where i worked and did all my experiments. And Right here in 1794, I found that the total mass of the products of a chemical reaction is always the same as the total mass of the starting materials consumed in the reaction. This led me to come up with What I called the law of conservation of matter, which states that matter is unable to be made or destroyed. This then created the initial conversations on what an atom happened to be with exact definitions. That is the role I played to help understand the atom.
Another experiment And observation I made was I reacted oxygen with inflammable air, obtaining the water in a very pure state. I made a correct conclusion that the water was not an element but a compound of oxygen and inflammable air.
Now you may be wondering how and where I came up with all this new information about the atom. Well, all of these experiments I have told you about so far helped me find this new information. I experimented with chemical reactions to see if the mass of the product was the same as the total mass of the starting materials at the end of the reaction. This experiment was how I came up with the law of conservation of mass.
Now that I'm done all of that boring stuff I can tell you some cool and interesting facts about me.
1. I introduced the first understanding of oxygen's role in combustion. 2. I was executed by guillotine because of wrongly accused crime in the French revolution 3. I was born into a wealthy family so I could afford the best schools and education possible. When I was in these schools I fell in love with science. 4.
