2 Matter Everything is made of MATTER! Matter is anything that has volume and mass.Volume is the amount of space an object takes up, or occupies.
3 Measuring the volume of liquids Liquids have volume. We measure that volume with a graduated cylinder.Notice the meniscus in the graduated cylinder.Always measure at the bottom of the meniscus!A liquid in any container has a meniscus.Liters (L) and mL (milliliters) are most often used to express the volume of liquids.
4 Solid Volume The volume in a solid is always expressed in cubic units. Cubic means having “three dimensions.”Cubic meters(m3) or cubic centimeters(cm3) are most often used to express the volume of a solid.The 3 in m3 signifies that three quantities were used to get the final result. (That is a derived quantity!)If each side in the cube below is 2m, what is the volume of the cube?__________
5 The Volume of Solids, Liquids, and Gases 1 mL = 1 cm3 REMEMBER THAT!That is why you can compare the volume in liquids to solids.How do you measure the volume of a gas?You can’t see it, so how do you measure it?ex: balloon
6 Matter and Mass What is mass? Mass is the amount of matter that something is made of.Even atoms have mass!Looking at the picture…The mass stays constant in certain forms of matter such as…__________________.The mass changes in certain forms of matter such as…_________________.
7 What is the difference between mass and weight? This is an important concept to understand!Let’s start by understanding gravity.Gravity is the force of attraction between objects that is due to their masses.All matter experiences gravity!The amount of attraction between two objects depends on their weight.There is attraction between all objects with mass, but since they are so small in reference to the earth, the attraction between them is also small.
8 So, what about weight?Weight is the measure of the gravitational force exerted on an object!Look at Spot and the rock…which one is attracted to the earth more through gravitational force? ________________Which one weighs more? ___________So, this means the greater the gravitational force, the greater the weight.Which weighsmore? >
9 Measuring Weight and Mass The SI unit for mass is kilogram (kg).Sometimes we will use milligrams or grams. (mg or g)The SI unit for weight (or gravitational force) is NEWTONS.A Newton is approximately equal to the weight of a 100 gram mass on earth.
10 The major differences between MASSA measure of the amount of matter in object.Always constant, no matter the location.Measured with a balance.Expressed in kilograms, grams, and milligrams.WEIGHTA measure of the gravitational force on an object.Varies depending on where the object is in relation to the earth. Example: ____________Measured with a spring scale.Expressed in Newtons.
11 Describing MatterKnowing the characteristics or properties of an object can help you identify the object.There are:Physical PropertiesChemical Properties
12 Physical PropertiesThings that describe the object are physical properties.Physical properties can also be observed or measured without changing the identity of the matter.Examples of physical properties include: color, odor, size, state, density, solubility, melting point, etc…
13 Chemical PropertiesChemical properties describe a substance based on its ability to change into a new substance with different properties.Ex: wood burns to form ash and smokeChemical properties cannot be observed with your senses.Chemical properties aren’t as easy to observe as physical properties.Examples of chemical properties: flammability and reactivity
14 Characteristic Properties The properties that are most useful in identifying a substance are its characteristic properties.Remember the difference between physical and chemical properties.Physical properties can be observed! (with your eyes!) IDENTITY OF SUBSTANCE DOES NOT CHANGE!You can observe chemical properties only in situations in which the identity of the substance could change.
15 Some Characteristic Properties So which properties allow us the identify unknown substances?DensitypHSolubilityMelting and boiling pointsEtc…
16 Spotlight on Density Density is a very helpful physical property. Density = mass per unit of volume or Density = mass/volumeDensity is an excellent help in identifying substances because each substance has its own density.
17 If Density = mass/volume Then mass = volume x densityorm = v x dAND volume = mass/densityvolume = mV
18 Spotlight on Solubility Solubility is the maximum amount of solute that can be dissolved in a given amount of solventCan be measured in g/LSolubility depends on temperatureSolubility of gas in water
19 Other Characteristic Properties Solids: electrical conductivity & flame testLiquids: reaction to litmus & cobalt chloride paperGases: reaction with glowing splint, burning splint & limewater
21 Physical ChangesA physical change is a change that affects one or more physical properties of a substance.Physical changes do not form new substances! EX: ice melting or sugar dissolvingPhysical changes are easy to undo.
22 Chemical ChangesA chemical change occurs when one or more substances are changed into entirely new substances with different properties.You can observe chemical properties only when a chemical change might occur!Examples of chem. changes:baking a cakerusting
23 Clues to chemical changes Color changeFizzing or bubbling (gas production)Not to be confused with boiling!HeatProduction of light, sound, or odor.Chemical changes are not usually reversible!
