2 Anything that has mass and takes up space. MatterAnything that has mass and takes up space.
3 Pure SubstanceA substance is a type of matter that has a fixed or definite composition (makeup). All substances are made of atoms.
4 ElementWhen a substance is made up of just one type of atom it is called an element. Ex. Gold, Copper, Helium, Oxygen
5 CompoundWhen a substance is made of two or more elements it is called a compound. Ex. Water, Table Salt, Carbon Dioxide
6 MixtureMatter with a variable composition (makeup). It is made of two or more substances and can easily be separated.
7 Heterogeneous Mixture A mixture that contains different materials that are unevenly distributed and can be easily identified.*How is this different from a compound?
8 Homogeneous MixturesA mixture of solid, liquid or gas that contains two or more substances blended evenly throughout.Also known as a solution. A solution is a homogeneous mixture of particles so small that they cannot be seen with a microscope and would never settle.
9 *Colloid is often a mixture of things that don’t A type of mixture with particles that are larger than those in solutions but not heavy enough to settle to the bottom of the container.*Colloid is often a mixture of things that don’tmix.
10 A mixture containing a liquid in which visible particles settle. SuspensionA mixture containing a liquid in which visible particles settle.
