  • Anything that has a mass and a volume

States of Matter





Close up view of atoms and their behavior

Physical vs. Chemical Change

  • Changing from one state to another is a

  • Physical Change.

  • If a new substance is formed it is a

  • Chemical Change.

  • The building blocks of Matter

  • Consists of Protons (+), Electrons (-),

  • and Neutrons (N).


  • Consists of only one kind of atom,

  • Cannot be broken down into a simpler type of matter by either physical or chemical means

  • Can exist as either atoms or molecules.

  • A molecule consists of two or more atoms of the same element, or different elements, that are chemically bound together.

  • In the animation above, two nitrogen atoms

  • (N + N = N2) make one Nitrogen molecule .

Slide7 l.jpg


  • Atoms of two or more different elements bound together.

  • Can be separated into elements chemically, but not physically.

In the animation above, water (H20) is a compound made of Hydrogen and Oxygen.

  • Solutions are groups of molecules that are mixed up in a completely even distribution.


  • Uniform Distribution.

  • Example: Sugar and Water

Slide9 l.jpg


  • The substance to be dissolved.


  • The one doing the dissolving.

Slide11 l.jpg


  • Particle sizes are in between the size of particles found in solutions and suspensions .

  • Can be mixed and remain evenly distributed without settling out.

Slide12 l.jpg


  • They are substances held together by physical forces, not chemical.

  • Can be separated physically.

  • Solutions are also mixtures.


  • The substances are not uniformly mixed.

  • Example: Sand in a glass of water.

Slide13 l.jpg



  • Are heterogeneous mixtures consisting of parts

  • that are visible to the naked eye.

  • Substances will settle over time.

Example: the ingredients in salad dressing
