liquid particles are not as close together and can flow over and under other particles
gas particles are further apart, bounce off each other, and move very fast

Mitochondria Powerhouse of the cell; releases energy the cell needs to work
Nucleus brain of the cell; directs the cell's activities
Vacuole stores water, nutrients, and wastes
mass amount of matter in an object
volume amount of space an object takes up
microscope helps us see VERY small objects
stopwatch helps us measure elapsed time in minutes and seconds
ruler helps us measure length in cm and mm
temperature measures the energy of motion of the particles in matter
Boiling Point 100 degrees Celsius and 212 degrees Fahrenheit
Freezing Point 0 degrees Celsius and 32 degrees Fahrenheit
Dmitri Mendeleev person who arranged the periodic table by atomic weight and similar properties
element a pure substance that cannot be broken down into any other substance; recognized by a symbol on the periodic table
