Even many things that you cannot see, smell, or touch are matter. Describing Matter Matter is anything that takes up space and has mass. The amount of matter in an object is its mass. The more mass an object has, the heavier it is. Living and nonliving things are made of matter, including our clothing, the food we eat, and even the air that we breathe. Air is matter that you can’t see, yet it still takes up space. You can observe this as you blow up a balloon; the air takes up space making the balloon bigger. HELIUM What is Matter?

A property is a feature, trait or characteristic and is used to describe an object. Matter can have several different properties. For example, two properties that describe a marshmallow are that it’s soft and white. Characteristics of Matter What characteristics can you use to describe matter? How are objects similar or different? These objects can be sorted by shape, color, size, texture, and living and nonliving. shape color size texture living

Use Your Senses A property is a feature, trait or characteristic and is used to describe an object. Physical properties that can be identified with your senses include color, odor, shape, hardness and texture. For example, you can smell the odor of a rose, see its color and shape, and feel its texture.

Measuring Mass & Volume © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 94-4368 Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. Measuring Mass Mass is the amount of matter in an object. A balance is used to measure mass in metric units of grams or kilograms. For example, to find the mass of a rock, you place it on one side of the balance and gram cubes on the other side. When the two sides balance each other, the mass of the rock equals the mass of the number of gram cubes on the balance. Measuring Volume of a Liquid Volume is the amount of space an object takes up. There are several tools that can be used to measure volume, such as measuring cups, graduated cylinders, and beakers. The units of measure are milliliters or liters. For example, to measure 50 mL of water, we pour it into a cylinder, until it reaches the 50 mL point marked on the side. Finding the Volume of a Solid Object A graduated cylinder can also be used to measure the volume of solid objects, such as a rock. Fill a cylinder to about the half-way mark with water and read the number on the side. Place the rock in the cylinder and read the water level again. Now, subtract the old reading from the new reading and you have just measured the volume of the rock. 1 gram 1 gram 1 gram 1 gram mass = 7 grams 1 gram 1 gram 1 gram 250 ml measuring cup graduated cylinder beaker 90 100 80 70 60 10 20 30 40 50 50 mL 90 100 80 70 60 10 20 30 40 50 250 ml measuring cup cylinder beaker 90 100 80 70 60 10 20 30 40 50 measuring cup beaker graduated cylinder 50 mL 90 100 80 70 60 10 20 30 40 50 90 mL 90 100 80 70 60 10 20 30 40 50 90 100 80 70 60 30 40 50 40 mL 50 mL 90 100 80 70 60 10 20 30 40 50 90 mL 90 100 80 70 60 10 20 30 40 50 90 100 80 70 60 30 40 50 40 mL 50 mL 90 100 80 70 60 10 20 30 40 50 90 mL 90 100 80 70 60 10 20 30 40 50 90 100 80 70 60 30 40 50 40 mL rock water initial volume volume with object 90 mL - 50 mL 40 mL

Did you ever wonder why some small objects weigh more than larger objects? It depends on their density. Density is a measure of how much matter fits into a certain amount of space. Density & Buoy ancy Measuring Density To find out the density of an object divide its mass by its volume. Which do you think has a greater density - a bowling ball or a basketball? If you guessed the bowling ball, you’re correct! Buoyancy and Density Buoyancy is a property that demonstrates whether an object is more or less dense than water. Density and buoyancy are closely related. An object will float in water (have buoyancy) if it’s less dense than water and sink if it’s more dense. density = mass volume density = mass volume solid filled with air more dense than water - sinks less dense than water - floats

Measuring Temperature Temperature is a measure of the hotness or coldness of an object. A thermometer is used to measure temperature in the metric unit degree Celsius (ºC). A thermometer shows the temperature by the up or down movement of a colored liquid inside the thermometer. Temperature & Magnetism metal objects As an object heats up, the liquid inside the thermometer moves up showing a higher temperature. As an object cools, the liquid inside the thermometer moves down showing a lower temperature. Attraction to Magnets Attraction to magnets is also a physical property of matter. Certain objects that contain the metal iron are attracted to magnets. Such objects are magnetic. They include keys, metal paper clips, and iron nails. Magnets do not attract non-magnetic objects made of plastic, wood, or paper.

States of Matter © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 94-4371 Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. The three states of matter are liquid, solid, and gas. Matter can change from one state to another through a change in temperature. Solids, Liquids & Gases Solids keep their shape and always take up the same amount of space. Liquids can flow and change their shape depending on the container they are in. Gases, on the other hand, are often invisible and change their volume and shape to fill up the container they are in. State Changes in Water Liquid to Ice When liquid water cools to 0ºC, it changes to solid water, called ice. Condensation - Gas to Liquid Condensation is the opposite of evaporation. It takes place when water vapor (gas) cools and changes from vapor to liquid. If you’ve ever left a cold drink outside on a hot summer day, then you’ve already seen condensation. As the water vapor in the warm air touches the cold surface of the glass, it cools forming water droplets (liquid) on the glass. Liquid to Water Vapor When liquid water heats to 100ºC, it boils and changes to water vapor. This process is called evaporation. Regardless of its state, it is still water.

Changes in Matter © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 94-4372 Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. Physical Changes to Matter A physical change to matter happens when matter changes size, shape, or form, but does not change the type of matter it is. For example, let’s say you cut a piece of paper into smaller pieces. The original piece of paper has undergone a physical change; it has changed both shape and size, yet, it is still paper. Chemical Changes to Matter Chemical changes to matter happen when one type of matter changes into another type of matter. For example, the matter that you start with in a campfire is wood. As the wood burns, it undergoes a chemical change turning into gases and ashes. wood paper paper smoke (gases) ashes Metal rusting is another example of a chemical change.

Mixtures & Solutions © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 94-4373 Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. Mixtures A mixture is a combination of two or more kinds of matter. Each kind of matter doesn’t change in the mixture and keeps its own properties. An example of a mixture is a fruit salad with berries, watermelon pieces, and banana slices. The fruit is mixed together, but the berries, watermelon, and banana haven’t changed into new kinds of fruit. Mixtures can be separated. Solutions A solution is a type of mixture in which matter is evenly mixed or combined. Lemonade is an example of a solution. It is a mixture of water, lemon juice, and sugar combined evenly into a drink. Once the parts of lemonade are combined together, they cannot be easily separated. This is one main difference between a mixture and a solution. Pure Cane SUGAR SUGAR fruit mixture fruit separated
