Two samples ‘m’ a

Answer :

Slaked lime = calcium hydroxide {Ca(OH)2}


The law of constant proportions states that “The proportion by weight of the constituent elements in the various samples of a compound is fixed,”


The proportion by weight of oxygen and calcium in slaked lime(in sample m) is 2:5 i.e. 0.4:1


The proportion by weight of oxygen and calcium in slaked lime(in sample n) is 0.4:1.0


Since the proportions of constituent elements remain fixed it follows the law of constant proportion.
