What is Matter?
Matter can change between the 3 states: solidto liquid (melting), liquid to gas (evaporation),gas to liquid (condensation), liquid to sold(freezing), solid to gas (sublimation), and gas tosolid (deposition)
Particle theory of matter: matter is composedof tiny objects called particles, particles havespace between them, particles are always inmotion, and particles in a substance attracteach other.
Classifies as a pure substance or a mixture
Pure substances are either elements orcompounds.
Mixtures can be heterogenous or homogenous.
Can be easily reversed
Colour and lustre
Results in the formation of a new substace
cannot be reversed easily
formed when nonmetals combine
can be any of the 3 states at room temperature
good insulators, poor conductors
Low boiling points
Naming molecular compounds
First element always stays the same
second element changes to end in "ide"

Quantum Mechanical Model: electrons exist inspecific energy levels as a cloud
Alloys are a mixture of two or more metals
Metals: shiny, silver or grey in colour, greatconductors, and malleable.
Nonmetals: there are only 17 elements
