Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space (even if you can’t see it)
Characteristics you observe about matter are often related to how that matter was formed
These are all physical properties.
Most physical properties you can detect with your senses.
Physical properties are characteristics you can observe without changing the makeup of the material
Density is an INTRINSIC physical property that relates mass to volume.
D= mass (g, mg or kg)) without changing the makeup of the material
volume (L, ml, cc)
An astronomer found a small meteorite. The astronomer knew that Nickel and Iron are often found in meteorites. The meteorite has a mass of 185g and a volume of 21 ml. What is the Density of the meteorite? Is the meteorite mostly made of Nickel or Iron? (The density of Iron is 7.87g/ml. The density of Nickel is 8.9 g/ml)
