Lavoisier mixed substances, burned common materials, and weighed and measured the results. His work led to the discovery of more than 30 elements. He described acids, bases, and salts as well as many organic compounds. Through a unique experiment with water (H2O), he determined that it is made up of the gases hydrogen and oxygen, with oxygen having a weight eight times that of hydrogen. This led to a later theory of the Law of Definite Proportions, which states that a definite weight of one element always combines with a definite weight of the other(s) in a compound.

In addition, electrons assigned to a specific shell stay in position until forced out by an input or loss of energy. Even more important, a particular shell or energy level “dislikes” having any electrons missing. If a shell does not have its complete quota of electrons, the atom will “bond” with other atoms by “taking in electrons” or “giving up electrons” or “sharing electrons” in order to maintain a complete outer shell, thus forming molecules. This is the essence of how atoms of elements form molecules of compounds, and it is the essence of chemical reactions.

The fission (splitting) of nuclei or the fusion (combining) of nuclei is the source of the energy that causes nuclear explosions. A detonation of a so-called atom bomb or the production of energy in a nuclear power plant is not a chemical reaction but a nuclear reaction. To nonscientists there is little distinction between a chemical weapon and a nuclear weapon—both are deadly, but the distinction is fundamental to chemistry and physics. | 15 16 | The History and Use of Our Earth’s Chemical Elements The Nucleus and Radiation Many scientists have contributed to concepts of radiation as produced by the particles making up the nuclei of atoms, and descriptions of some of those scientists and their work follow.
