Anything that has mass and takes up space and basically makes up the universe.
has definite shape and volume
has definite volume, changeable shape
has changeable shape and volume
The capacity to do work (put matter into motion)
energy in action
Potential –
energy of position; stored (inactive)
– stored in the bonds of chemical substances
– results from the movement of charged particles
– directly involved in moving matter
Radiant or electromagnetic –
energy traveling in waves (i.e., visible light, ultraviolet light, and X rays)
Energy is easily converted from one form to another
Ture or false?
During conversion, some energy is “lost” as sound.
true or false
False- energy is lost through Heat
The composition of matter is comes in what two basic properity?
Atoms and elements
– unique substances that cannot be broken down by ordinary chemical means
Atoms –
more-or-less identical building blocks for each element
Atomic symbol
– one- or two-letter chemical shorthand for each element
elements as a whole have similar physical and chemical properties
True or false?
False: Each element has unique physical and chemical properties
Physical properties
– those detected with our senses
Chemical properties
– pertain to the way atoms interact with one another

What elements make up 3.9% True or False?
Lesser elements
Lesser elements make up 3.9% of the body and include:
Calcium (Ca), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), sulfur (S), sodium (Na), chlorine (Cl), magnesium (Mg), iodine (I), and iron (Fe)
what elements make up less than 0.01% of the body and are required in minute amounts, and are found as part of enzymes
Trace elements
Atomic Structure:
The nucleus consists of
neutrons and protons
Atomic Structure: These have no charge and a mass of one atomic mass unit (amu)
Atomic Structure: these have a positive charge and a mass of 1 amu
Electrons are found orbiting the nucleus. true or false?
These have a negative charge and 1/2000 the mass of a proton (0 amu)
Electrons –
Name 2 Models of the Atom
Planetary Model and
Orbital Model –
what atom model shows that electrons move around the nucleus in fixed, circular orbits
Planetary Model –
What atom model shows regions around the nucleus in which electrons are most likely to be found
Orbital Model –
Molecule –
two or more atoms held together by chemical bonds
Compound –
two or more different kinds of atoms chemically bonded together
two or more components physically intermixed (not chemically bonded)
Mixtures –

hellum (He)
what's this element?
lithium (Li)
what's this element?
what is this element?
What is this element?
– substance present in greatest amount
substance(s) present in smaller amounts
Solute –
homogeneous mixtures of components
Solutions –
Concentration of Solutions is measured by?
1. Percent, or parts per 100 parts
2. Molarity, or moles per liter (M)
A mole of an element or compound is equal to its atomic or molecular weight (sum of atomic weights) in liters
true or false?
False, its measured in grams
name 2 heterogeneous mixtures whose solutes do not settle out
Suspensions and
Colloids, or emulsions,
Colloids, or emulsions, and Suspensions are heterogeneous mixtures with visible solutes that tend to settle out

True or false?
True or false:
Only chemical bonding takes place in mixtures
False NO chemical bonding takes place in mixtures
T or F: Most mixtures can be separated by physical means
True All compounds are homogeneous
T or F: Mixtures are heterogeneous but not homogeneous
False: Mixtures can be BOTH heterogeneous or homogeneous
T o F: Compounds cannot be separated by physical means
T or F: All compounds are homogeneous
T or F: Bonds surround the nucleus of an atom
false: Electron shells, or energy levels, surround the nucleus of an atom
T or F: Electron shells, or energy levels are formed using the electrons in the outermost energy level
false: Bonds are formed using the electrons in the outermost energy level
what is the outermost energy level containing chemically active electrons
a Valence shell –
a single Covalent bond
what kind of bond is this?
a double Covalent bond
what kind of bond is this?
a triple Covalent bond
what kind of bond is this?
formation of an ionic bond
what does this picture represent?
Valence shell –
outermost energy level containing chemically active electrons
except for the first shell which is full with two electrons, atoms interact in a manner to have eight electrons in their valence shell
