Science - Fifth Grade - Weight, volume, density, and mass

the basic building blocks of matter
Chemical properties
describes how a material changes element
Physical properties
can be measured without changing the material. Characteristics that can be observed, described or measured.
the measure of the pull of gravity on an object
is the amount of matter in an object.
the amount of space that an object takes up
the amount of matter in a given volume
An object is _______ if it floats.
Elements combine
to make all matter
Elements cannot be
broken down by simple means
Each element has its own
physical and chemical properties
Elements are identified by
their properties
Chemical properties describe
how matter changes into other matter.
Physical properties can be seen measured without
hanging the material
Physical proberties can be
observerd, described, or measured
Examples of properties are
color, odor, mass, and volume
Weight is measured
using the spring on a scale
The amount of mass affects
the amount of weight
Mass stays
the same
Mass is measured
using a balance scale
Volume of a regular box is
Length x width x height as done in math class
Volume can be measured using
a graduated cylinder
Density is mass
divided by volume
Density is a
physical property of an object
floating depends
on an object's density and the density of the liquid it is placed in
An object will float if it's density
is less than the density of the liquid
An object will sink if it's density is
more than the density of liquid
