Elem. Chem/Phys 1&2

Chem / Physics - First 2 Module Vocab.

Matter Anything that takes up space (Volume and Mass)
Energy What makes everything in the world move, work and do things.
Properties Special features, traits, or attributes of materials found in the universe.
Words to Describe Matter Mass, volume, density, buoyancy, luster, color, shape, harness, smell and magnetism.
Mass How much stuff inside it (Not by weight.)
Volume The amount of space that something takes up
Density How much mass is in a certain volume of matter.
Bouyancy Ability of something to float.
Magnetism Objects that stick to a magnet are made up of iron.
Archimedes What scientist discovered watching water displace by an object was the way to measure volume?
Displace Replace matter with another kind of matter – or material
Atoms Particles that make up everything around you.
Plasticity A material can be changed into a different shape without breaking.
Ductility Whether or not the object can be made into a wire.
Malleable Bendable Materials.
Freezing Point The temperature that makes a liquid turn into a solid.
Melting Point The temperature that makes a solid turn into a liquid.
Liquids Substances that are free to flow, with no particular shape.
Amorphous Solid A solid without a shape (a=without;morph=shape)
Non-Newtonian Liquid A solid without a shape.
Surface Tension Molecules on the surface of the water stick together, they form an invisible 'skin'.
Viscosity The thickness or resistance to flow in a fluid.
Solid Anything that has a specific shape and size.
Freezing Point of Water 32 degrees Fahrenheit
Melting Point of Water Above 32 degrees Fahrenheit
Boiling Water atoms with all kinds of energy.
Steam Boiling water becoming a vapor.
Boiling Point The temperature that makes something change from a liquid to a gas.
Gas A state of matter with particles that do't have a specific volume or shape; the particles take on the volume and shape of the container.
Compressed Gas Gas energy that wants to take up a lot of volume and squeezed it into a tiny space.
Condensation Point When a gas becomes a liquid.
