1 Properties of Matter

2 Composition and Properties of Matter
Composition of Matter what matter is made of Ex: Center of the Earth Properties of Matter what the matter is like; how matter behaves. Ex: Earthquakes

3 Matter: The Substance of the Known Universe
anything that has mass and volume Examples of matter: solids, liquids, gases NOT examples of matter: ideas (truth, love, loyalty), heat, energy Mass: the amount of matter in an object Mass is related to weight, but it is NOT the same thing.

4 Mass Vs. Weight What does an object’s weight depend on?
how hard gravity pulls on it this will vary, depending on location An object’s mass does NOT change, no matter where it is.

5 Volume Volume the amount of space an object occupies Is air matter?
Air takes up space; has mass

6 Simplest form of matter
The most basic unit of matter is the atom. There are 109 different varieties of atom. they are listed on the Periodic Table Ex: oxygen (O), carbon (C), hydrogen (H) Often, atoms combine together to form a molecule a neutral group of atoms held together by chemical bonds Ex; Carbon dioxide, water, hydrogen molecule

7 How Do We Classify Matter?
At the smallest level, all matter is composed of atoms. All matter can be classified as either a pure substance or a mixture. Ex: Pure Substance; pure gold (24 karat) Ex: Mixture; gold alloy (14 karat)

8 Pure Substance a type of matter for which all samples have the same properties; they behave exactly the same way There are 2 types of pure substances, elements and compounds

9 Elements and Compounds
samples of a substance that contain only one type of atom. An element CAN’T be broken down into simpler substances by chemical means. the Periodic Table has 109 different elements. Examples of elements: aluminum (Al), nickel (Ni), nitrogen (N)

10 Elements and Compounds Cont.
Allotropes: different forms of an element in the same physical state Ex: oxygen atom, oxygen gas, ozone O O O3 Compounds: a substance made up of 2 or more different elements that are chemically combined Methane (CH4), Water (H2O)

11 Compounds Cont. Properties of Compounds: Sample problem:
every sample of a particular compound has the same properties as every other sample Sample problem: In every 100 g sample of pure water, there are 11.2 g of hydrogen and 88.8 g of oxygen. How many grams of hydrogen are in a 120 g sample of pure water?

12 Mixtures Mixtures: a combo of 2 or more substances; each retains its individual properties In a mixture, there are no chemical bonds between the different substances. There are two types of mixtures homogeneous mixture heterogeneous mixture

13 Homogeneous mixture all regions of a homogeneous mixture are identical in composition and properties Homogeneous mixtures are evenly-mixed, or uniformly distributed, at the particle level, and are also referred to as solutions. Ex: soda pop, salt water, sugar water, Kool-Aid alloy = a homogeneous mixture of 2 or more metals Ex: brass = copper + zinc,

14 Heterogeneous mixture
some regions have different composition and properties than other regions In heterogeneous mixtures, the particles may appear to be evenly mixed at the macroscopic level, they are NOT uniformly-distributed at the microscopic (particle) level. Ex: Examples: tossed salad, concrete, raisin-nut bread, oil-vinegar dressing, taco

15 Heterogeneous mixture
Other types of Heterogeneous Mixtures suspension = appears uniform while stirred; settles when agitation stops Examples: Quick milk, muddy water, OJ with pulp, oil & vinegar dressing colloid = contains tiny particles that never settle out Examples: gelatin, milk, smoke, fog

16 Characteristics that Distinguish Pure Substances from Mixtures
1. A pure substance has only one set of properties, but a mixture retains the properties of each of its constituents. 2. The composition of a pure substance is fixed, but the composition of a mixture can vary widely.

17 Physical and Chemical properties and changes
All matter exhibits physical and chemical properties Physical properties: color, odor, density, hardness, solubility, melting point & boiling point. Chemical properties: are those exhibited when a substance reacts w/ other substances. Ex: reactions with acids and bases and other chemicals

18 Physical Change The altering of shape, size, or physical state but chemical composition stays the same. Solid  Liquid Melting Gas  Liquid Condensation Solid  Gas Sublimation Liquid  Solid Freezing or Crystallizing Gas  Solid Reverse Sublimation Liquid  Gas Boiling or Evaporation

19 Chemical Change The atoms of a substance are rearranged
A new substance(s) formed has a chemical composition that is different than the original substance(s)
