Basic Chemistry. What is matter?. Matter is anything that takes up space and has mass. Solid Liquid Gas. What is Energy?. Energy is the ability to do work or to put matter into motion. Kinetic energy- Movement Potential energy- Stored energy
All living things are built of matter. Therefore in order to grow and function, they need a continuous supply of energy.
Also, give a list of any sources of energy.
In your groups, discuss any circumstances where one energy form is converted into another.
H (atom) + H (atom) → H2 (molecule)
4H + C = CH4 (methane)
Compounds always have properties quite different from the atoms making them.
Hydrogen atom + Hydrogen atom → Molecule of Hydrogen gas
A + B → AB
AB → A + B
AB + C → AC + B or AB + CD → AD + CB
