States of matter ppt

  1. 1. ark434/jsb154/srsa/july2009
  2. 2. <ul><li>Matter is anything that has mass and occupies space. </li></ul><ul><li>Mass: is an actual measurement of the amount of matter present. </li></ul>ark434/jsb154/srsa/july2009
  3. 3. <ul><li>Physical properties: Properties of matter that can be observed or measured without trying to change the composition of the matter being studied. </li></ul><ul><li>Chemical properties: Properties matter demonstrates when attempts are made to change it into new substances. </li></ul><ul><li>Physical changes: Changes matter undergoes without changing composition. </li></ul><ul><li>Chemical changes: Changes matter undergoes that involves changes in composition. </li></ul>ark434/jsb154/srsa/july2009

  6. 6. ark434/jsb154/srsa/july2009 Matter can be classified:
  7. 7. <ul><li>Elements are substances that cannot be decomposed by chemical means into simpler substances </li></ul><ul><li>Each element is assigned a unique chemical symbol </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Most are one or two letters </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>First letter is always capitalized </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>All remaining letters are lowercase </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Names and chemical symbols of the elements are listed on the inside front cover of the book </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Compounds are substances formed from two or more different elements combined in a fixed proportion by mass </li></ul><ul><li>The physical and chemical properties of a compound are, in general, different than the physical and chemical properties of the elements of which it is comprised </li></ul><ul><li>Elements and compounds are examples of pure substances whose composition is the same, regardless of source </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>A mixture consists of varying amounts of two or more elements or compounds </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Homogeneous mixtures or solutions have the same properties throughout the sample </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Heterogeneous mixtures consist of two or more phases </li></ul></ul>
