Mixture a substance made by mixing other substances together
Solution a means of solving a problem or dealing with a difficult situation
Solute the minor component in a solution, dissolved in the solvent
Solvent able to dissolve other substance
Physical properties any property that is measurable whose value describes a state of a physical system
Chemical properties a property or characteristic of a substance that is observed during a reaction in which the chemical composition
Energy levels the fixed amount of energy that a system described by quantum mechanics, such as a molecule, atom, electron, or nucleus, can have
Ionic formed by the electrostatic attraction of oppositely charged ions.
Covalent of, relating to, or denoting chemical bonds formed by the sharing of electrons between atoms.
Ions an atom or molecule with a net electric charge due to the loss or gain of one or more electrons
Cation positively charged ion
Anion a negatively charged ion
Metallic attraction between the positively charged atomic nuclei of metal atoms
Dot Diagrams A structural formula in which electrons are represented by dots; two dots between atoms represent a covalent bond
Chemical Reactions a process that involves changes in the structure and energy content of atoms, molecules, or ions but not their nuclei
Reactants A substance participating in a chemical reaction, especially a directly reacting substance present at the start of the reaction
Products A product is a substance that is formed as the result of a chemical reaction.
Synthesis the composition or combination of parts or elements so as to form a whole
Decomposition A decomposition reaction is a type of chemical reaction where one reactant yields two or more products.
Single Replacement one element is replaced by another in a compound.
Double Replacement type of reaction that occurs when the cations and anions switch between two reactants to form new products
Chemical Formula A chemical formula tells us the number of atoms of each element in a compound
Law of Conservation the mass is constant irrespective of its changes in form; the principle that matter cannot be created or destroyed
Endothermic chemical change that is accompanied by an absorption of heat
Exothermic process or chemical reaction characterized by or causing the liberation or release of heat

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
