### Elements

the basic building blocks of matter

### Chemical properties

describes how a material changes element

### Physical properties

can be measured without changing the material. Characteristics that can be observed, described or measured.

### Weight

the measure of the pull of gravity on an object

### Mass

is the amount of matter in an object.

### Volume

the amount of space that an object takes up

### Density

the amount of matter in a given volume

### Buoyant

An object is _______ if it floats.

### Elements combine

to make all matter

### Elements cannot be

broken down by simple means

### Each element has its own

physical and chemical properties

their properties

### Chemical properties describe

how matter changes into other matter.

### Physical properties can be seen measured without

hanging the material

### Physical proberties can be

observerd, described, or measured

### Examples of properties are

color, odor, mass, and volume

### Weight is measured

using the spring on a scale

### The amount of mass affects

the amount of weight

the same

### Mass is measured

using a balance scale

### Volume of a regular box is

Length x width x height as done in math class

### Density is mass

divided by volume

### Density is a

physical property of an object

### floating depends

on an object's density and the density of the liquid it is placed in

### An object will float if it's density

is less than the density of the liquid

### An object will sink if it's density is

more than the density of liquid
