Properties of Matter

Chapter 9, Lesson 1

how can you describe matter
How Can You Describe Matter?
  • Properties are things that can be observed about an object or group of objects.
  • Color, size, shape, mass, weight, volume, density, boiling point, solubility, etc are all properties.
how can you describe matter1
How Can You Describe Matter?

Mass

  • the amount of matter in an object
  • remains the same
  • measured in g or kg

Weight

  • how strongly gravity pulls on the mass of an object
  • changes depending on the gravitational pull
  • measured in Newtons (N)
how can you describe matter2
How Can You Describe Matter?

Volume

  • how much space matter takes up
  • measured in mL or cm3
  • Use the water displacement method for irregularly shaped objects
  • LxWxH for regularly shaped objects
how can you describe matter3
How Can You Describe Matter?

Density

How much “stuff” (mass) is in a given space (volume)

Density = Mass÷Volume

Can be changed by varying the volume of the object

Buoyancy

  • the resistance to sinking
  • depends on mass and volume of the object (density)

Surface tension – the tendency for water particles to pull towards each other

what forms can matter have
What Forms Can Matter Have?

Solid

  • Particles are very closely packed
  • Have definite volume and definite shape

What Forms Can Matter Have?

Liquid

  • Particles move freely
  • Have definite volume but no shape

What Forms Can Matter Have?

Gas

  • Particles move past each other very easily
  • Have no definite volume or shape
