physical change is any change that alters the form or appearance of a substance but does make the substance into another substance

reactant the substances that undergo change in a chemical reaction
product the substances formed by the reaction
precipitate is a solid that forms from solutin during a chemical reaction
endothermic reaction the total making and breaking of bonds results in a net absorption of energy. the energy is absorbed as heat from nearby matter, which cools
exothermic reaction the total making breaking of bonds results in a net release of energy The energy is released as heat into nearby matter
chemical equation is a short, easy way to show a chemical reaction using symbols instead of words
conservation of matter during a chemical reaction, matter is neither created nor destroyed. the total mass of the reactants must equal the total mass of the products
open system matter can enter from or escape to the surroundings.
