examples of physical properties of matter
some examples are color, shape, size and texture
molecules move quickly past each other and spread out
anything that has mass and takes up space; everything you see even air
3 states of water
ice, water, water vapor; all have the same kind of matter, molecule and atom
2 or more atoms joined together

how the surface of an object looks when light shines on it; shiny or not
5 physical properties of matter
color, shape, texture, density and luster
how the object feels
how much matter is in a given space, or volume
a characteristic of matter that can be observed only when matter is changed into a new kind of matter
chemical properties examples
burn, rust, cook , tarnish; how matter reacts with air, heat and water
