Chapter 2 opening demonstration
Chapter 2 Opening Demonstration

  • How are these two cans alike and different?

  • If we put these two drinks in water would they float or sink???

  • Let’s Try!

Who is right
Who is Right??

  • This will work for any regular and diet drink!


  • Describe physical & chemical properties.

  • Give examples of physical changes.

  • Explain that chemical changes form new substances.

  • Observe signs of chemical changes in an experiment.

Physical properties
Physical Properties

  • We use physical properties to describe an object or a person!

  • How would you describe these objects?

Matter has observable properties
Matter has observable properties

  • Physical Properties the characteristics of a substance that can be observed without changing the identity of the substance.

  • Your senses can be used to detect physical properties.

  • Examples: Color, shape, size, texture, volume, mass.

How do you know which characteristics are physical properties
How do you know which characteristics are physical properties?

  • Just ask yourself whether observing the property involves changing the substance to a different substance.

Density properties?

  • Mass & Volume are two physical properties

  • Densityis a measure of the amount of matter present in a given volume of a substance.

    Density= Mass D= m

    Volume V

Can you determine
Can you Determine??? properties?

  • How would you find the density of 200 g of clay with a volume of 100 cm3.

  • Density is a property of a substance that remains the same no matter how much of a substance you have!

Density properties?

  • A glass marble has a volume of 5 cm3 and a mass of 13 g. What is the density of glass?

  • Answer: D= 2.6 g/cm3

Physical changes
Physical Changes properties?

  • A change in any physical property of a substance, not in the substance itself.\

  • Examples:

    • Stretching a Rubber Band

    • Ice melting

Chemical properties

Why is Lady Liberty’s nose so shiny? properties?

  • It needs to be powdered?

  • NO! When Tori and Alex rub her nose, the oils on their skin remove the tarnish (a chemical reaction); revealing the untarnished alloy. Olis from their hands also protect the alloy from reacting with the air and forming more tarnish.

  • Do you think they pulled out an alloy booger?

Chemical properties1
Chemical Properties properties?

  • Chemical Properties describe how substances can form new substances.

  • Examples:

    • Combustibility

    • Iron Rusting

    • Silver Tarnishing

    • Cooking (boiling Eggs)

      The only true indication of a chemical

      change is that a new substance has been


Signs of a chemical change
Signs of a Chemical Change properties?

  • You may or may not be able to observe many chemical changes.

  • If you observe 2 or more of these signs during a change, you are most likely observing a chemical change.

    • Production of an Odor

    • Change in Temperature

    • Change in Color

    • Formation of Bubbles

    • Formation of a Solid

Formation of an odor
Formation of an Odor properties?

  • Some chemical changes produce smells.

  • The chemical change that occurs when an egg is rotting produces the smell of sulfur.

  • Thunderstorms also produce an odor. The odor is an indication that lightning has caused a chemical change in the air.

Change in temperature
Change in Temperature Jason deFoor

  • Chemical changes often are accompanied by a change in temperature.

  • Example: Logs burning in a campfire

Change in color
Change in Color Jason deFoor

  • A change in color is often an indicator of a chemical change.

  • Example: Fruit may change color when it ripens.

Formation of bubbles
Formation of Bubbles Jason deFoor

  • The formation of gas bubbles is another indicator that a chemical change may have occurred.

  • Example: Antacid tablet in water

Formation of a solid
Formation of a Solid Jason deFoor

  • When two liquids combine, a solid called a precipitate can form.

  • Examples: Shells of animals such as clams and mussels are precipitates. They are the result of a chemical change involving substances combining with substances from the creatures.

Review Jason deFoor

  • What is a Physical Change?

  • Give an example.

  • What is a Chemical Change?

  • Give an example.

  • What is density? What is the formula?

  • What are the signs of a Chemical Change?
