Properties of matter

Properties of Matter

Chapter 18 Section 2


Physical properties

Physical Properties

  • Physical Property – any characteristic of a material that you can observe without changing the identity of a substance

    • Examples: color, shape, size, density, melting and boiling points


Physical properties1

Physical Properties

  • Appearance

    • Shape

    • Color

    • State of matter

  • Behavior

    • Magnetism

    • Viscosity

    • Malleability


Physical properties2

Physical Properties

  • Using Physical Properties to separate

    • Filter

    • Distillation

    • Use a magnet

    • Chromatography

    • Centrifuge


Physical changes

Physical Changes

  • Physical Change – change is size, shape or state of matter

    • The identity of the element or compound does not change (new substance DOES NOT form)

    • Examples: Freeze, boil, evaporate, break, bend,


Chemical properties and changes

Chemical Properties and Changes

  • Chemical Property – characteristic of a substance that indicates whether it can through a chemical change

    • Flammability

    • Combustibility

    • pH


Chemical changes

Chemical Changes

  • Chemical change – a change from one substance to another, a change in chemical identity

    • Rusting, burning, digesting food, baking soda and vinegar

  • Clues to chemical changes:

    • Heating, cooling, formation of bubbles or solids


Weathering chemical of physical

Weathering – chemical of physical

  • Physical

    • Large rocks split when water seeps in the cracks and then freezes

    • Streams cut through softer rocks and form canyons


Weathering physical or chemical

Weathering – physical or chemical

  • Chemical

    • Limestone undergoes a chemical change when slightly acidic rainfall hits it.

    • Formation of stalactites in caves


The conservation of mass

The Conservation of Mass

  • The mass of all the substances that are present before a chemical change has to equal the mass of the substances after the change.
