Unit 5
For Instance...
(in a substance)
are made up of a single type of atom, but can have more than one atom in its structure to exist stably in nature.
Mass is the measurement of how much matter is in a given object.
Volume is a measure of the size of a body or region in three-dimensional space
Energy is considered the ability to do work on a physical system.
Intensive properties do not depend on or change with the amount of matter present. Instead, intensive properties remain the same no matter how much matter is present. Some of these properties are density and ability to conduct and transfer electricity and energy as heat.
Chemical properties refer to a substance's ability to change into different substances. Chemical properties can be seen easily when substances are undergoing chemical reactions to form new substances.
Physical properties are characteristics that can be determined and observed without changing the identity of the substance. Physical properties describe what the substance itself is, and not how it can change into different substances.

...I see properties!
States of Matter are a Physical property and go through exothermic and endothermic processes.
When a substance goes through an exothermic change, energy is released. For example, when water freezes, the substance loses energy so water can become ice, which has very low energy
When a substance goes through an endothermic change, energy is obtained. For example, when ice sublimes, the substance gains energy so ice becomes gas, which is the state with the 2nd highest energy after plasma
Homogeneous Mixtures:
Are mixtures that have all of their components
uniform throughout.
Examples of Homogeneous mixtures are minerals, gun powder, saltwater etc...
Solutions are homogeneous mixtures as well.
Heterogeneous Mixtures:
Are mixtures that are non-uniform
in composition and/or properties.
Examples are pizza, milk, sand in water, Ernest Hemmingway ect...
Colloids are heterogeneous mixtures that appear homogeneous, but when closely observed are found to contain small particles.
Suspensions are heterogeneous mixtures which have large particles suspended or scattered in a liquid. These particles can either be filtered out or given time, they will settle.

Word Variations
As we study vocabulary we notice that many of our words have different spellings. These are sometimes called word variations or inflected forms of a word.
We will continue studying using these different forms of the words to create stories. This can be challenging, so have a dictionary close by so that you can use the words correctly.
For example, the word “authentic” has many variations or inflected forms. I will try to tell a story using all of the forms of this word—wish me luck. There are eight (8) forms of the word listed! Eight!! You will see my story right behind the slide that has the word “authentic” listed on it.
Now, try pronouncing each of the words and their variation as the slides progress slowly. y.
Word Variation
Word Variations
Inflected Forms
Once upon a time, in a land not so far away called Florida, a little girl walked on the beach. Samantha, that’s her name, found a coin with many strange marking that looked ancient. She wondered if the coin was authentic, could it really be from ancient times? So, she showed the coin to her friend, Dora.

“How can I get my coin authenticated so I can tell what it is worth,” she asked Dora.

“I don’t know anything about how to determine the authenticity of coins,” Dora replied, “You will need an expert who can authentically determine its worth—that not me.”

“Do you know a person who authenticates coins?” Dora asked.

“Well, I will look in the phone book for a coin authenti-person, or authority on coins. It can’t be that hard, and this person will know how to authenticate my coin.”

She looked and found that the person was called a “coin dealer.” She took the coin to him.

“While he is authenticating it; I will think of ways to spend the fortune that I will get from selling my coin after its authentication.”

Samantha ordered lots of games, new shoes, clothes, books, DVD’s, and CD. She charged it to her mother’s credit card. Then she went to see the Coin Dealer.

“Worthless,” said the Coin Dealer, “Absolutely, worthless. It’s a button off an old coat from long ago.”

Samantha screamed, jumped up and down and finally fainted!
