Matter
Everything that has mass and volume
Density
A characteristic property of matter that has mass per unit of volume.
Characteristic Property
An indicator that helps you identify a substance
Mass
Amount of matter in an object
Density, melting/freezing, amount of luster, magnetic, conducts electricity
Examples of characteristic properties
Volume
mL, cubic cm, cubic mm
mass
grams (g)
Density
g/ mL or g/cubic centimeter
Formula for volume
V=m/d
Formula for mass
mass=dv
Formula for density
d= m/v
density of regular shaped objects
ruler
L x W x H for volume
g/ cubic centimeter
How do you measure Mass?
electric balance always
density of liquids
use a graduated cylinder for volume
find the mass using an electric balance
g/mL
Meniscus
bottom of the curve of water
Density Irregular shaped objects
g/ mL or g/ cubic centimeter
can't measure l x w xh
water displacements for volume
Water displacement
Add water that is higher than the object
write down the amount of water
drop the object in the water
subtract the 2 amounts to find the volume of an irregular shaped object
weight
force of gravity
scale
Newtons
Changes depending on a planet location
Mass
grams
electric balance
does not change
Density column
Denser objects are on the bottom and less dense objects are on top, float
Density of water
1 g/ mL
Density of wax, oil
less than 1g/mL floats on water
definition for volume
amount of space an object occupies
