Transcript of Physical Properties

Thermal Conductivity
the amount of mass
per unit of volume
Physical Properties
is the rate at which a substance transfers
thermal energy.
is the ability of a substance
to be rolled or pounded into
thin sheets.
EX: Aluminum can be
rolled into sheets
to make foil.
EX: Plastic foam is a poor
conductor. Hot chocolate
will not feel as hot
through a plastic foam cup.
I heart density!
the amount of matter or "stuff" an object is made of.
Constant no matter the location.
Measured using a triple beam balance.
Units: mg, g, kg
Mass / Volume
Units: g/cm3 (solids)
g/mL (liquids)
the amount of space that
an object occupies or takes up.
Measured 3 ways:
graduate cylinder/beaker
L x W x H
water displacement
Units:mL, L or cm3
is the ability of a substance to dissolve in another substance.
EX: A flavored drink mix
dissolves in water.
is the ability of a
substance to be pulled
into a wire.
EX: Copper is often
used to make wiring
because it is ductile.
things that can be measured
and/or observed without
changing the identity of
the substance
State of Matter
the physical form in which
a substance exists, such as a solid,
liquid, or gas.
EX: Ice is water in its solid state.
Other Things to Consider:
Chemical Properties
There are 2 types of chemical properties
that we deal with in science class:

Flammability & Reactivity
The ability of a substance to burn and catch fire.

For Example: Wood has the ability to burn and create smoke, ash and heat.

the ability of a substance to interact with another substance usually resulting in a new substance.

For Example: Baking soda has the ability to react with vinegar and create fizzing, bubbles and thermal energy.
