106 Three States of Matter solid liquid gas

107 Physical or Chemical? A physical change does not alter the composition or identity of a substance. A chemical change alters the composition or identity of the substance(s) involved. ice melting sugar dissolving in water hydrogen burns in air to form water Phase Change

108 An extensive property of a material depends upon how much matter is is being considered. An intensive property of a material does not depend upon how much matter is being considered. mass length volume density temperature color Extensive and Intensive Properties

109 Matter - anything that occupies space and has mass. mass – measure of the quantity of matter SI unit of mass is the kilogram (kg) 1 kg = 1000 g = 1 x 10 3 g weight – force that gravity exerts on an object weight = c x mass on earth, c = 1.0 on moon, c ~ 0.1 A 1 kg bar will weigh 1 kg on earth 0.1 kg on moon
