Chemical properties

  1. 1. Chemical Properties
  2. 2. Goals: <ul><li>To describe chemical properties of matter. </li></ul><ul><li>To learn the clues that indicate that a chemical change has taken place. </li></ul><ul><li>To distinguish between chemical and physical changes. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Access Prior Knowledge: <ul><li>What caused the car in the first slide to rust? </li></ul>
  4. 4. What is a chemical property? <ul><li>The ability to produce a change in the composition of matter. </li></ul><ul><li>They can be observed only when one substance in a sample of matter is changed into another substance. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex.-whenever something is burned, that substance becomes something completely different. The ability to burn is a chemical property. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Flammability <ul><li>The ability to burn in the presence of oxygen. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Reactivity <ul><li>How easily a substance combines chemically with another substance. </li></ul>Oxygen easily reacts with many other elements. What other element is oxygen reacting with in this photo?
  7. 7. How Can You Recognize Chemical Changes? <ul><li>A change in color – Ex. The green patina on an old copper roof. </li></ul><ul><li>Production of a Gas – Ex. Using baking powder and water in a cake mix. CO 2 is produced which helps the cake rise. </li></ul><ul><li>Formation of a Precipitate – (any solid that forms and separates from a liquid). Ex. Adding vinegar to milk causes the proteins to clump together. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Can you think of physical changes that exhibit these clues also?
  9. 10. Is a change in color always an indicator of a chemical change?
  10. 11. Is the formation of a gas always an indicator of a chemical change?
  11. 12. Physical v. Chemical Changes <ul><li>Before you decide whether a chemical change has actually taken place, ask yourself this question: Are different substances present after the change takes place? If not, it is a physical change (the composition of the matter stays the same). </li></ul>
