The rate at which a substance transfers heat.
The physical form in which a substance exists, such as solid, liquid or gas.
The mass per unit volume of a substance. D=m/v
The ability of a substance to dissolve in another substance.
The ability of a substance to be pulled into a wire.
The ability of a substance to be rolled or pounded into thin sheets
A characteristic of a substance that does not involve a chemical change, such as density, color, or hardness.
A change of matter from one form to another without a change in chemical properties.
A property of matter that describes a substance's ability to participate in a chemical reaction. Examples are: flammability, reactivity.
When one or more substances are changed into new substances that have new and different properties. examples of chemical change are: soured milk, effervescent tablets.
A quality of a substance that never changes and can be used to identify a substance. characteristic properties can be physical: density and solubility; or chemical: flammability and re-activity.
states of matter
the physical form of matter: solid, liquid, and gas.
has a definite shape and volume.
has a definite volume but does not have a definite shape.
a form of matter that does not have a definite volume or shape.
The ability of s substance to burn.
The ability of two or more substances to combine and form one or more new substances.
Physical vs. Chemical properties
You can observe physical properties (density, shape, volume) without changing the substance. Chemical properties (flammability, reactivity) are not easy to observe.
