ESS: Physical Properties of Matter
Terms in this set (14)
The amount of stuff in an object.
The force of gravity a planet (or a Moon) exerts on an object
A measure of how crowded something is
Objects with less of this are more likely to float.
Describe two different ways to make an object more dense.
1) Increase its mass while keeping its volume the same. 2) Decrease its volume while keeping its mass the same.
Bonus Method: 3) Increase its mass while decreasing its volume.
Describe two different ways to decrease the weight of an object.
1) remove mass 2) Keep the mass the same, but take the object to a place with weaker gravity.
A pushing force; an example is the force of air particles pushing against the insides of a car tire
When molecules of matter heat up, what happens to their speed?
They speed up.
When molecules of matter cool down, what happens to their speed?
They slow down.
When gases (like air in a sealed plastic bottle) heat up a little bit, what happens to their mass? Why?
Mass doesn't change, because no stuff is added or removed.
When gases (like air in a sealed plastic bottle) heat up a little bit, what happens to their pressure? Why?
Pressure increases, because the air molecules move faster and push harder against the bottle.
When gases (like air in a sealed plastic bottle) heat up a little bit, what happens to their volume? Why?
Volume increases, because the air molecules move faster, push away from each other, and spread out.
When gases (like air in a sealed plastic bottle) heat up a little bit, what happens to their density? Why?
Density decreases, because the air spreads out, becoming less crowded.
