Flashcards in Property Of Matter Deck (28):
1

What is an element

Made up of only one type of atom cannot be broken in to similar particles

2

Compounds

Made up of two or more different atoms
Can be broken down chemically (h2O)

3

Solutions

A substance that is the same throughout
Has the same appearance (salt and water)

4

Suspension

A mixture with distinct sedimentation
U can see particles in the water (sand and water )

5

Mechanical mixture

Can be separated easily ( trail mix )

6

Heterogeneous

Does not look the same throughout

7

Homogeneous

Has the same appearance throughout

8

What things are homogeneous

Solution compound element

9

What things are under heterogeneous

Mechanical mixture and suspension

10

Pure substance

Something that is the same throughout

11

Mixture

Things that were not chemically together , being mixed

12

What is under mixture

Mechanical mixture and suspension

13

What is under pure substances

Solution compound and element

14

What is at the top of the chart

Kinetic molecular theory

They use this to explain what happens to matter when the kinetic energy of particles changes
