measure of the amount of matter in an object mass
used to measure the mass of an object triple beam balance
used to measure the volume of a liquid graduated cylinder
particles in atoms have a negative electric charge electrons
number of protons equals the number of electrons
only particles found in the nucleus of an atom protons and neutrons
have no charge; they are considered neutral neutrons
located outside of the nucleus, orbiting around it electrons
positively charged particles in the nucleus of an atom protons
Neutrons are located in the nucleus
atomic number number of protons
most reactive metals group 1

material used to increase the rate of a chemical reaction catalyst
how to supply activation energy to begin a reaction heat it up
minimum amount of energy that has to be added to start a reaction activation energy
increase in temperature affects the rate of a chemical reaction gives particles more energy
increase in surface area affects the rate of a chemical reaction speeds up the reaction
increase in concentration of reactants affects the rate of a chemical reaction supplies more particles to react
