Physical Change When a substance undergoes a change in form, but the substance itself remains unchanged.
Endothermic reaction When molecules interact to form new molecules, and in the process, energy is absorbed from the environment.
Chemical reaction The process of rearranging atoms of original molecules into new substances with different properties
Exothermic reaction When substances interact in a chemical reaction and energy is released in the process.
Mass The amount of matter that makes up a substance, measured in grams.
Matter Anything that takes up space and has mass.
Reactants Atoms or molecules of substances that interact to cause a chemical reaction.
Products New, different molecules that are formed when different molecules interact.
Phases of matter When substances can exist in different forms, like ice, water and water vapor, these forms are known as:
