Intro to physical properties of matter

  1. 1. Physical Properties Does it Matter?
  2. 2. Magnetism • Matter that contains iron, iron alloys, or nickel will be attracted to a magnet • Not all metals are attracted to a magnet
  3. 3. Physical State • 3 forms: liquid, solid, or gas • Can change from one form to another by the processes of melting, freezing, evaporation, and condensation • Temperature changes are involved with changes in state
  4. 4. Mass • Mass is the amount of matter in an object. Mass is measured with a balance. • Mass is not the same as weight. • Weight is a result of the pull of gravity on an object and is measured with a scale.
  5. 5. Relative Density Sinking & Floating • Weight doesn’t determine if an object will sink or float. • How much space an object takes up and how much matter the object contains determines density.
  6. 6. Solubility in Water • Ability of a substance to dissolve when added to water • A liquid (ie: lemon juice), a solid (ie: powdered drink mix), or a gas (ie: carbon dioxide) can be dissolved in water.
  7. 7. Conduction • Some materials allow thermal (heat) energy or electrical energy to flow through them easily. • Such materials are called conductors.
  8. 8. Insulation • Some materials do not allow thermal (heat) energy or electrical energy to flow through them easily. • Such materials are called insulators.
  9. 9. Does it Matter? • Matter has… …measurable physical properties • Those properties determine… …how matter is classified, changed or used
