Atoms the smallest particle of an element that has the properties of the element and can exist either alone or in combination
Element any of more than 100 fundamental substances that consist of atoms of only one kind and that cannot be separated by ordinary chemical means into simpler substances
Compounds a pure chemical substance consisting of two or more different chemical elements that can be separated into simpler substances by chemical reactions
Electrons an elementary particle that has a negative charge of electricity and travels around the nucleus of an atom
neutrons an uncharged atomic particle that has a mass nearly equal to that of the proton and is present in all known atomic nuclei except the hydrogen nucleus
pH Scale a number used in expressing acidity or alkalinity on a scale whose values run from 0 to 14 with 7 representing neutrality, numbers less than 7 increasing acidity, and numbers greater than 7 increasing alkalinity

chemical property a material's properties that becomes evident during a chemical reaction e.g. Zinc reacts with hydrochloric acid to produce hydrogen gas
physical property any property that is measurable
periodic table an arrangement of chemical elements in order of atomic number that groups elements with common characteristics in the same area
mixture two or more substances that are put together but not chemically combined and that may vary in proportion
