Vocabulary for Unit 1 and 2 (Matter and Mixtures/Solutions)

  • Conductor – a substance or object that allows energy to flow through it easily

  • Dissolving – the process by which substances break down into small pieces and spread evenly throughout a liquid (water)

  • Electrical energy – energy that is absorbed or delivered by an electric circuit

  • Gas – a state of matter in which the substance expands to take both the shape and the volume of its container

  • Insulator – a substance or object that does not allow energy to flow through it easily

  • Liquid – take the shape of their container, filling the bottom of the container first; has the ability to flow

  • Magnetism – a force of attraction that causes a magnetic material to move

  • Mass – the amount of matter in something

  • Matter – anything that has mass and takes up space

  • Melting / freezing point – the temperature at which a substance changes from a liquid to a solid or a solid to a liquid by the loss or addition of heat;  

  • for water this temperature is 0°C

  • Metric system – the decimal measuring system based on the meter, liter, and gram as units of length, volume (capacity), and weight or mass

  • Mixture – a combination of two or more substances that can be easily separated in some physical way

  • Physical properties – properties of matter that can be observed, measured, or changed without changing the matter itself

  • Relative density – floating or sinking when compared to water

  • Solid – definite shape and size

  • Solubility – the ability of a substance to dissolve in another substance, such as sugar dissolving in water

  • Solution – a type of mixture in which the particles of one or more substances are dissolved (uniformly dispersed throughout) in another substance

  • States of matter – the forms matter can take, such as solid, liquid, and gas; sometimes called phases of matter
