how much space matter takes up-in ml and l-liquids


how much matter is in a definite space


measure of gravity pulling on an object's mass-in g and kg


how much mass in a definite space-more gravity pulling so will be on bottom

boiling point

the temperature when of water evaporation-liquid to gas-add heat-100 degrees Celsius

freezing point

the temperature when water changes from liquid to solid-take away heat-water expands-0 degrees Celsius

melting point

the temperature when a substance changes from a solid to liquid-add heat

the ability of substances to block heat and electricity from passing through


attracted to magnets-metals-iron and steel (iron is in steel)-poles are N and S-N to S-attracts (pulls) S to S and N to N -repels (pushes)


the ability to float in water


two or more solids put together-can be separated

dissolve (solubility)

a solid breaks apart in a liquid, cannot see the solid-salt or sugar in water-can be separated by evaporating the water
