Chemistry Exam


Study of the composition of materials and the changes that materials undergo best describes the science of chemistry
the branch of chemistry that includes the study of materials and processes that occur in living things is biochemistry
the branch of chemistry that is concerned with the indentification and composition of materials is analytical chemistry
the study of chemistry containing carbon is organic chemistry
technology is the application of scientific knowledge to solve problems
applied research carried out to solve a problem
a physical property may be investigated by melting ice
chemical properties include changes that alter the identity of a substance
two features that distinguish matter are mass and volume
the particles in a solid are packed and close together
qualitive observations are recorded using non-numerical information
the si standard units for length and mass are meter and kilogram
the metric unit for length that is closest to the thickness of a dime is the millimeter
the symbol for the metric unit used to measure mass is g (grams)
