Properties of Matter

Matter Anything that has mass and takes up space
Volume The amount of space taken up by an object.
Miniscus The curve at the surface of a liquid (the level of liquid you measure in a graduated cylinder).
Cubic Centimeters How volume of a solid object is measured.
Mass The amount of matter in an object
Weight The measure of gravitational force exerted on an object.
Inertia The tendency of an object to resist change in motion.
Physical Property A property of matter that can be observed or measured without changing the matter's identity (thermal conductivity, state, density, solubility, ductility and malleability.
Physical Change A change that affects one or more physical properties of a substance (ie: melting, freezing, condensation)(making a lump of silver into a silver bracelet).
Density The amount of matter in a given space (Mass/Volume).
Chemical Properties Property of matter that is based on the ability to change into a new substance that has different properties (flammability).
Reactivity The ability of two or more substances to combine and form one or more new substances.
Chemical Change When one or more substances are changed into new substances that have new and different properties (ie: rusting, change of color, change of odor, production of heat, fizzing and foaming, making sounds or light).
