How will you show that Dalton atomic theory with the law of constant proportion?

According to the 6th postulate of Dalton's atomic theory, atoms of each element are similar and have the same weight and atoms of one element combine with atoms of another element to form compounds.

The law of constant proportion is also known as the law of constant composition says that, in any particular chemical compound, all samples of that compound will be made up of the same elements in the same proportion or ratio. 

For example, a water molecule is always made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom in a 2:1 ratio.

Hence, it explains the law of constant proportions.
