Stoichiometry is based on the law of conservation of mass. On what law is thermochemistry based?
Thermochemistry is based on law of conservation of energy (1st Law of Thermodynamics)
In chemistry, a chemical reaction is a process that leads to the transformation of one set of chemical substances to another. Both reactants and products are involved in the chemical reactions.
In chemistry, energy is what is required to bring about a chemical reaction. The total energy of a system is the sum of the potential energy of its constituent particles and the kinetic energy of these particles. Chemical energy, also called bond energy, is the potential energy stored in the chemical bonds of a substance. Chemical energy is released when a bond is broken during chemical reactions.

so this question asked us about which law thermo chemistry is based upon it. And thorough chemistry is based upon the first law of thermodynamics, which essentially states that all energy is conserved within a system. So it is about the conservation of energy, a very classic example of a chemical reaction that highlights this is the combustion of wood. And so when we have the combustion of wood, the initial form of energy is the potential energy that comes from the bonds within the wood. And we burn the wood or we combust it and re engage in a combustion reaction that isn't transferred into thermal energy and then subsequently heat that is emitted from fire. So even though the forms of energy change from potential energy to heat the total amount of energy when the system is still the same
