Chapter 1

  1. 1. CHEMISTRY Chemistry is the science that deals with the specific properties, especially the composition and structure, of matter and its transformations. It isn't a chem-mystery! Chemistry is a physical science because it deals with "physical quantities" - things that can be expressed by a number followed by a unit.
  2. 2. Properties of Matter Matter is anything that has mass & occupies a volume. We also describe matter by itsphysical and chemical properties.
  3. 3. Physical Properties For a substance like gasoline its physical properties are: · odor · colour · density
  4. 4. Chemical Properties For a substance like gasoline one of its chemical properties is: · flammability This is true because it involves interactions with other substances.
  5. 5. Chemical Change (Reaction) When gasoline ignites, it reacts with oxygen to form new substances including carbon dioxide and water. This is an example of a chemical change or a chemical reaction.
