Terms in this set (76)
Anything with mass and volume
Amount of matter in an object (Kilograms)
Resistance to change in an object's motion
The pull of gravity on an object determines the weight (measured in Newtons)
The amount of space an object takes up (liters=liquid, cubic centimeters=solids)
Mass per unit volume of an object (g/L)
color, shape, hardness & texture
4 phases of matter
solid, liquid, gas & plasma
Definite shape and volume
solids made up of crystals (particles arranged in a repeating pattern)
solids that lose their shape under certain conditions (glass & candle wax are examples)
No definite shape. However, they do have a definite volume. (1 Liter is 1 Liter regardless of the container it occupies) Particles are close together, but are free to move around.
The resistance of liquid to flow. (Honey has a high viscosity--it flows very slowly)
No definite shape or volume. (It will fill all available space in a container)
If the volume of a gas is reduced, the number of particle collisions will increase. Gas pressure will increase.
The volume of a fixed amount of gas varies directly with the temperature of the gas.
RARE on Earth-Matter is very high in energy and very dangerous to living things.
A change where the physical properties are altered but the substance remains the same kind of matter.
Change of a solid to a liquid
The temperature at which a solid changes to a liquid
A liquid changes to a solid due to the loss of heat energy.
The temperature that is equal to the melting point, yet the liquid changes to a solid
Change of a substance from a liquid to a gas
Vaporization at the surface of a liquid
Temperature at which liquid boils (when the particles inside and on the surface of a liquid change to a gas and travel to the surface)
When a gas changes to a liquid
When a solid changes directly to a gas
Properties that describe how a substance changes into a new substance
The ability to burn
A chemical change in which a new substance with different physical and chemical properties is created.
Has identical properties throughout
Matter that has parts with different properties
Matter with two or more substances mixed together but not chemically combined
'Least mixed' of all mixtures. Mixture that doesn't appear to be the same throughout.
'Well mixed'. Mixture that appears to be the same throughout. (Particles are very small and not easily recognized)
'Best mixed'. Type of homogeneous mixture formed when one substance dissolves into another
Metal solutions where solids are dissolved into solids
Made of only one kind of material with definite properties. (Homogeneous matter)
The simplest pure substance. They cannot be broken down into simpler substances. (Beware: Not all pure substances are elements)
The smallest particle of an element with all of the same properties.
Representation of elements. (If two letters make up a symbol, the 1st letter is capitalized followed by a lower case letter)
Two or more elements chemically combined. (Ex. Sugar, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide)
Two or more atoms chemically bonded together. The smallest part of a compound that has all the properties of the compound.
Combinations of chemical symbols. Most represent compounds.
Small number written to the right side of an element in a chemical formula.
Description of a chemical reaction using symbols.
The number placed in front of (left side) the chemical symbol in order to balance the equation.
Substance that does the dissolving
Substance that is dissolved in the solution
Substance that doesn't dissolve in water (oil)
Substance that will dissolve in water (sugar, etc)
Heterogeneous mixture that can separate over time, generally cloudy or with floating particles that are visible to the eye (You can filter out particles)
Particle sizes are between a solution and a suspension (particles cannot be filtered out) Ex. Fog (It will scatter light)
Greek philosopher who named the smallest piece of matter an atom
Proposed the first atomic theory 2100 years after Democritus claimed there was such a thing as an atom
Discovered the atom was divisible and had smaller, negatively charged particles (electrons)
Thompson's Plum Pudding Model
This model is where negatively charged particles are spread throughout positively charged material
He proposed there was a dense, positively charged center to an atom, which he called the nucleus
Electrons move in specific orbits around the nucleus of the atom
Particles that are smaller than an atom (you should know 3: proton, neutron and electron)
The center of an atom
A positively charged particle found in the nucleus
Atomic Mass Unit (amu)
The mass of a subatomic particle (a proton has an amu of 1)
Electrically neutral particle in the nucleus
Determines the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom
Atoms of the same element with different numbers of neutrons, but the same number of protons (the proton number never changes)
Sum of the protons and neutrons in the nucleus
The average of all the isotopes of that element as they appear in nature (precisely why this is generally not a whole number, but a decimal)
Negatively charged particles surrounding the nucleus
Space in which the electrons are likely to be found
Levels in which electrons are arranged. (first, second and third levels hold 2, 8 and 18 electrons; in that order)
An even smaller particle that makes up the subatomic particles in the nucleus. (It is said they are found in combinations of three)
Can attract or repel the particles it is acting on. (Electrons are kept in orbit around the nucleus due to this force)
Opposes the electromagnetic force and keeps the protons together. Works only when protons are very close together.
Responsible for Radioactive Decay (where a neutron in the nucleus changes into a proton and an electron) Key to the power of the sun.
Weakest force in nature. It is the force of attraction exerted between all objects in nature. Most easily observed on large objects.
