physical properties properties of a material that can be determined without chemically altering the substance such as mass, density, melting and boiling points
chemical properties properties of a material that cannot be determined without chemcially altering the subtance such as flamibility, oxidation, response to acids
chemistry the study of matter - what substances are made of, how they behave, and how they can be transformed
matter any substance that has mass and volume
mass the amount of material in a given sample
volume the amount of space a given sample occupies

precision how close each measurement is to repeated measurements
significant figures rules in measurement that allow you to indicate the degree of certainty in measurements
density mass divided by volume. The amount of material packed into a given space.
intensive properties properties that do not change if the quantity of the substance changes, they can be used to idenify an unknown substance. Example: density
extensive properties properties that change based on the quantity of the substance, they cannot be used to identify an unknown substance. Examples: mass and volume
meniscus the point at which you read the volume of a liquid in a graduated cylinder - the bottom of the curve at the surface of the liquid
