What is the smallest unit of matter?
Properties of Matter
Matter is made of tiny particles called atoms and molecules. Matter can be solid, liquid, gas, or plasma. Matter can change states from one form to another and be recycled.
What are properties of matter?
Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. Mass is a measure of how much matter is in an object, and volume is a measure of how much space it takes up.
Physical Properties – these are properties that can be observed without changing the identity of the substance. Examples include color, density, hardness, and boiling point.
Chemical Properties – these are properties that can only be observed when a substance undergoes a chemical reaction. Examples include flammability, reactivity with acids, and reactivity with other substances.
