Let’s learn about MATTER!
The Wonderful World of SCIENCE brings you--
Danielle and Hannah’s marvelously stupendous webular page.
Today’s topic is classifying matter. We will start with::
>Element:: any substance that cannot be broken down into a simpler one by a chemical reaction.
Example: Copper is an element because it is all the same no matter where you look at it and it cannot be broken down with chemical reaction. J
Danielle’s Dandy Definition-- element is a skateboarding brand…DUH.
>Compound:: a chemical combination of two or more elements. Can be decomposed by chemical reaction.
Hannah’s Helpful Hint--Umm…it can dissolve?
PARTICLES GET BIGGER
>Solution:: its composed of a solute and solvent…
Danielle’s Dandy Definition—What’s a Solute? And what the heck is a Solvent?
Hannah’s Helpful Hints—Solute is SUGAR!!!!! IT DISSOLVES! And Solvent it the one that it dissolves in!
>Colloid:: Particles do not settle out through time. You can’t see the particles with your eye.
Hannah’s Helpful Hints—It’s thick-y and sticky!
PARTICLES GET EVEN MORE BIGGERER
>Suspension: Particles in liquid that settle out due to gravity. You CAN see the particles with your eyes.
Example: Vinegar (with stuff floating in it)
Danielle Dandy Definition— I think that means that you can see little floating things, just like my brothers after they eat crackers and drink water. (Ha.)
>Heterogeneous: Components can’t be distinguished…not uniform in appearance.
Hannah’s Helpful Hints—Classified as um…uhm…wait! I know! Physically bonded…not chemically! Danielle’s Dandy Definitions—Like Dirty Laundry!
