matter
Since a book and a pencil both take up space and have mass, they are both types of
properties
matter can be described by its
describe
a property is any characteristic of matter that you can
properties
size, color and shape are
mass
the amount of matter that is in an object is called its
less
the mass of a beach ball is __________ than the mass of a bowling ball
dense matter
matter with tightly packed particles is called
mass
solids, liquids, and gases are alike in that they all take up space and have
size
all solids have a definite shape and
definite
all liquids have _______ volume
shape
a liquid does not a have a definite
size
a gas has no definite shape or
liquid
both a gas and a ______________ take the shape of the container they are in
atoms
all solids, liquids, and gases are made of
liquid
the particles in a gas have more energy than the particles in a solid or a
gas
the particles in a ______________ can spread out to fill a large container or squeeze together to fit a small container
solid
particles packed very close together form a
gas
the energetic particles can spread out to fill a contianer
physical change
a change in how matter looks, but not in the kind of matter it is, is called a
gas
water that evaporates changes from a liquid to a
matter
a mixture is a combination of different forms
mixture
the properties of each type of matter in a ___________ do not change
solution
when one or more types of matter are mixed evenly in another type of matter a ___________ is formed
solution
salt water is a type of
gas
particles in a liquid have less energy than particles in a
matter
is anything that takes up space and has mass
solution
when one kind of matter is spread evenly throughout another type of matter, it is in
liquid
matter that a has definite volume but not a definite shape is
volume
the amount of space that an object takes up is called its
mixture
blending different types of matter together makes a
iron

compound
when two or more elements join together it is called
compound
since wood is made up of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen, it must be a
