Chemistry the study of matter and the changes it undegoes.
Compound substance made of atoms of 2/more elements united in fixed proportions.
Density mass of an object divided by it's volume (d=m/v)
Element substance that can't be separated into simpler substs by chemical means.
Extensive Property depends on how much matter you considered (mass/volume).
Heterogeneous mixture comp of the mixture is not uniform(sand and iron fillings)
Homogeneous mixture composition of the mixture is uniform thruout(h2o and sugar)
Hypothesis a tentative explanation for a set of observations
