the study of matter, the changes it undergoes and the energy required to change matter
any substance; has mass and volume
The quantity of matter contained in a body; measured in grams
measure of space that matter takes up; mL, cm3
A measure of force with which gravity pulls a body toward the center of the earth;
any part of a system with uniform composition and properties; a state
a quality or condition of a substance that can be observed or measured without changing the substance's composition
properties of pure substances that can be measured and expressed numerically; fp, mp, d, etc.
the amount of mass in a given volume
one in which the form or appearance of matter changes, but not its composition
characteristic that cannot be observed without altering the substance
a change that produces matter with a different composition than the original matter
smallest particle of an element
law of conservation of mass
Mass is neither destroyed nor created during ordinary chemical reactions or physical changes
a pure substance made of only one kind of atom
a substance formed by the chemical combination of two or more elements in definite proportions
A combination of two or more substances that are not chemically combined
uniform; of the same kind
not uniform throughout
capacity to do work or cause change
amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree Celsius
the SI unit of energy
energy stored due to an object's position or arrangement
the energy an object has due to its motion
law of conservation of energy
the law that states that energy cannot be created or destroyed but can be changed from one form to another
the total amount of kinetic energy due to molecular motion in a body of matter
a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a sample of matter
heat of fusion
the amount of energy required to change 1 g of a solid to a liquid
heat of vaporization
the amount of heat energy required to convert one gram of a substance from a liquid to a gas
a device used to measure the heat absorbed or released in a chemical or physical change
a reaction that releases energy in the form of heat
A reaction that ABSORBS energy in the form of heat
