51. Essential question: What is matter, how can you describe matter, and what are the ways that matter can be changed?

Matter is anything that has mass and takes us space. We’ve learned that matter can be defined as substances or as mixtures. Substances are either elements (our most basic substance with unique properties) or compounds, which are made up FROM elements. Compounds can be separated into elements ONLY by chemical means. Mixtures can be either homogeneous (also called solutions), which a mixture with only one phase (distinguishable part) or as heterogeneous. A heterogeneous mixture has 2 or more distinct phases, which can be separated by PHYSICAL MEANS.

Matter can be described with extensive properties (which refer to the amount of a substance) or with intensive properties (which refer to characteristics). Physical properties describe things you can OBSERVE about a substance with only physical changes (examples: melting point, boiling point, hardness, color) and chemical properties describe substances ability to do other things (Iron is able to react with oxygen, vinegar has the ability to react with baking soda, sulfuric acid has the ability to melt plastic).

Matter cannot be created or destroyed, but matter can be rearranged. In a chemical reaction, the mass of products and reactants remains the same (Law of conservation of mass) but the reactants are usually rearranged (Example: Water (as a reactant) decomposing into Hydrogen and Oxygen (products).
