  • Property: A characteristic of a substance.
  • Physical Properties: color, hardness, size, weight
  • Chemical Properties: how a substance reacts
discussion notes cont
Discussion Notes (cont.)

  • What is chemistry?
    • Chemistry is the study of what substances are made of, how they behave, and how they can be transformed. It is the study of matter and how matter can be changed.
    • A hypothesis is a testable explanation for an observation.
    • Scientists use a systematic approach to solving problems in science.

  • Modern chemistry is defined as the study of matter.
    • What do you think matter is?
    • Name two things that are matter and two things that are not matter.
key question23
Key Question
  • What is matter?
you will be able to24
You will be able to:
  • define matter
  • classify an item as matter or not matter
discussion notes26
Discussion Notes
  • The items that are clearly matter are all objects, or things, that are tangible.
  • Energy and ideas are not matter, but they involve matter.
  • Matter has some sort of dimension and substance to it.
discussion notes cont27
Discussion Notes (cont.)
  • A good definition should work 100% of the time.
  • Here are some textbook definitions of matter:
  • Matter: Anything that has substance and takes up space.
  • Matter:Anything that has mass and volume.
discussion notes cont28
Discussion Notes (cont.)
  • Energy is the ability to do work or make reactions happen.
wrap up29
Wrap Up
  • What is matter?
  • • Matter is everything that has substance and takes up space, or that has mass and volume.
  • • Ideas and energy are examples of things that are not matter.
  • • Chemists study all kinds of matter.

  • Which has more mass and weighs more, 5 kilograms of bricks or 5 kilograms of feathers? Explain your thinking.
  • 2. Would it hurt more to be hit with 5 pounds of feathers or 5 pounds of bricks? Explain your thinking.
key question33
Key Question
  • How do you determine the masses and volumes of different substances?
you will be able to34
You will be able to:
  • measure mass using a balance
  • measure the volume of regularly and irregularly shaped objects
prepare for the lab
Prepare for the Lab

Work in groups of four.

Prepare for the Lab (cont.)
  • In this lab, you will be measuring volume with a graduated cylinder.

To the nearest hundredth of a milliliter, the volume of liquid is 5.52 mL.

discussion notes37
Discussion Notes
  • Mass is commonly measured in units of grams (g) or kilograms (kg).
  • 1 kg = 1000 g
discussion notes cont38
Discussion Notes (cont.)
  • Volume is a measure of the amount of space occupied by something.
  • 1000 mL = 1 L
  • Mass: A measure of the quantity of matter in an object.
  • Volume: The amount of space a sample of matter occupies.

1 mL = 1 cm3

wrap up39
Wrap Up
  • How do you determine the masses and volumes of substances?
    • Mass is a measure of the amount of substance. Mass can be measured using an electronic or triple beam balance.
    • Volume is the amount of space occupied by an object. The volume of a liquid can be measured in a graduated cylinder.
    • Objects with similar volumes can have different masses, and vice versa.

  • A penny has a mass of 2.498 g.
  • a. What is the mass to the nearest tenth of a gram?
  • b. How would you determine the volume of a penny?
  • c. What is the difference between mass and volume?
  • d. Suppose you find that the golden penny has a mass of 2.6 g. If you compare it with the mass of this penny, what can you conclude?

  • In the year 250 B.C.E., King Hiero commissioned a goldsmith to make him a crown out of pure gold. However, when he received the crown, he suspected that the goldsmith had taken some of the gold and replaced it with a cheaper metal, even though it still weighed the same. He asked Archimedes to determine whether the crown was solid gold.
  • How do you think Archimedes determined whether the crown was solid gold?
key question43
Key Question
  • How can you use mass and volume to determine the identity of a substance?
you will be able to44
You will be able to:
  • define density as the amount of mass in a certain space, or mass per unit volume
  • solve problems for density, mass, or volume using the equation D = m/V
  • explain how and why density can be used to identify a substance.
prepare for the lab45
Prepare for the Lab
  • Work in pairs.
discussion notes46
Discussion Notes
  • Extensive property:A characteristic that is specific to the amount of matter.
  • Intensive property:A characteristic that does not depend on the size or the amount of matter.
  • Density: The mass of a substance per unit volume. D = m/V, where D is density, m is mass, and V is volume. Density is usually reported in g/cm3 or g/mL.
discussion notes cont47
Discussion Notes (cont.)
  • Common materials and their densities.
wrap up48
Wrap Up
  • How can you use mass and volume to determine the identity of a substance?
    • One substance can be distinguished from another by examining its intensive physical properties, such as density.
    • Density is a measure of the mass per unit volume of a substance.
    • The density of any given substance is always the same (as long as the temperature remains constant).
check in49
Check-in
  • In 1999, the United States Mint produced a coin called the Golden Dollar. It features an image of Sacagawea, the famous Native American guide for Lewis and Clark. It has a mass of 9.8 g and volume of 1.1 mL.
  • Is this coin truly gold? Explain. (The density of gold is 19.3 g/mL.)
