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.
In your groups try and list as many forms of energy as you can?
Also, give a list of any sources of energy.
In your groups, discuss any circumstances where one energy form is converted into another.
Atomic Structure, Molecules, and Compounds
H (atom) + H (atom) → H2 (molecule)
4H + C = CH4 (methane)
Compounds always have properties quite different from the atoms making them.
Chemical Bonds and Chemical Reactions
Hydrogen atom + Hydrogen atom → Molecule of Hydrogen gas
A + B → AB
AB → A + B
AB + C → AC + B or AB + CD → AD + CB
