Transcript of Matter
Anything that has mass and takes up space (volume).
small particles that make up matter
Properties that can be observed without changing the identity of the substance
conductivity - the ability of a material to transfer heat and electricity
Almost everything around you is matter
Can you name something that is considered matter? What about something that is NOT matter?
What is matter made up of?
molecule - 2 or more atoms joined together
Ex. H O, CO , C H O
How big is an atom?
Cut a piece of paper in half
Place one half on the table
Cut the remaining piece in half
Continue cutting (each cut should be
parallel to the first
) and count the number of cuts you are able to make
Ex: color, hardness, magnetism, conductivity, odor, state
mass - the amount of matter in an object
volume - the amount of SPACE an object takes up (LxWxH)
weight - a measure of the pull of gravity on an object
malleability - the ability to be bent, hammered, or flattened without breaking
ductility - ability to be pulled into thin wires without breaking
hardness - a material's ability to scratch another material
Triple Beam Balance
metric unit - Newtons (N)
metric unit - liter (liquid)
cubic centimeter - solid
metric unit - gram
