1. MA1Matter&GasLaws

properties, gas laws

physical property characteristic or property that describes matter; does not change or affect the identity of the matter when it is described or observed
chemical property property or characteristic of matter that describes its ability to change into something new; something happens- bubbles, smell, blows up...
physical change when a change occurs in one of its physical properties but does not affect the identity of the substance- it stays the same
chemical change when a change occurs and the substance changes into something totally new
density mass compared to volume
reactivity when 2+ substances are combined and something happens (ex- bubbles, catches fire, changes color...)
malleability ability to be pounded into thin sheets; pliable
ductililty ability to be rolled into coils
conductivity ability to transfer heat (or electricity) through it
viscosity resistance to flow (how thick or thin it is and how easy it is to pour); affected by temperature
flammability ability to catch fire and burn
kinetic theory 3 faceted theory that describes matter and its behavior
Boyles Law gas law- says that as a gas's volume increases, pressure decreases; inverse relationship "Boyle wants to be VP"
Charles Law gas law- says that a gas's temperature and volume are directly related- that as temperature increases, so does volume "Charles likes to watch TV"
pressure the number of times and strength of an atom (or substance) colliding with (or pushing against) the outer edge of a container
intermolecular force force that holds atoms together with each other
