Science 8 - Matter & Mixture
Vocabulary terms for this Unit
Terms in this set (27)
a combination of two or more pure substances such as that each one's properties are not lost, but may be hidden
a material that is made up of only 1 kind of particle. Can be an element or a compound
heterogeneous mixture of 2 or more substances
a mixture that is made up of different things, but has 1 set of properties and looks like only 1 thing
a mixture that is made up of different things, where each thing retains its properties. It therefore has unique properties for each thing.
a homogenous mixture of two or more pure substances
a substance that dissolves in a solvent, like salt dissolving in water.
the mass of a solute that can dissolve in a given amount of solvent to form a saturated solution at a given temperature
The ability of something to dissolve, forming a solution.
a substance that dissolves a solute to form a solution (e.g., water that dissolves salt)
a heterogeneous mixture in which particles settle slowly after mixing. Dirty water or orange juice is an example of this
a heterogeneous mixture in which particles do not settle, like fat particles in milk
a mixture in which droplets of fat are prevented from joining together by an emulsifying agent. Mayonnaise is an example of this.
forming a solution by mixing two or more materials together.
stirring or shaking
a solution that is full. No more solute will dissolve at a specific temperature
not able to be dissolved. It will not mix to form a solution
the measure of how fast a fluid will flow; the "thickness" or "thinness" of a fluid in a particular solvent
the volume of fluid that passes a point in a pipe or tube in a certain amount of time.
the amount of mass in a certain unit volume of a substance (density equals mass divided by volume)
the amount of matter in a substance
the measurement of the amount of space occupied by a substance
a very thin fluid that flows very fast.
a very thick fluid that does not flow very fast.
the tendency to rise or float in a fluid
a solution that is not full. More solute can be dissolved at a specific temperature
a solution that is over full. More solute has been dissolved because it was added at a higher temperature
