Physical Science MCA Review

**RESEARCH: With your partner, do the necessary research to complete the topic you were assigned & fill in your

topic's slide.

**PICTURE: Every topic needs at least ONE picture that explains your topic & any other questions asked for.

**PRESENT: Be ready to do a SHORT presentation of your slide at the end of the class--both partners need to present.


Physical science mca review

6.2.1.1-- Pure substances can be identified by certain properties: explain density, dissolving, compression, diffusion and thermal expansion using particle model.

Topic #1: Pure Substances vs. Mixtures

● Pic of the differences between pure substances and mixtures

● What happens to particles when the following occur:

dissolving, diffusion, compression, and thermal expansion


Physical science mca review

8.2.1.1.1--Use physical properties to distinguish between pure substances and mixtures and use a physical properties

Topic #8--Identify Forces

  • Identify the forces acting on an object and describe how the sum of the forces affects the motion of the object.


Physical science mca review

6.2.2.2.3-- Recognize that some forces between objects act when the objects are in direct contact and others, such as magnetic, electrical, and gravitational forces can act from a distance.

6.2.2.2.4--Distinguish between mass and weight

Topic #9: Direct and Indirect Forces

  • Give 3 examples of each:
