Matter

Matter - What any physical object consists or is composed of.
Mass is the amount of matter in a object, weight is the gravitational pull on the matter

Physical Properties

Physical properties are things you can do to a substance and still not change what the matter is.

Ex. Density or coloring

Physical Changes

Physical changes affects the physical properties or composition of the substance.

Ex. Melting sugar cube (thermal conductivity) or Tearing paper (solid)

Chemical Propeties

Chemical Properties is matter based on its ability to change into a new matter that has different properties
Ex. A bike rusting (reactivity) or Rubber alcohol (flammability)

Chemical Change

Chemical Change is when one or more substances are changed.

Ex. Baking a cake or burning paper

Physical and Chemical properties and changes difference

Physical properties are things you can do to a substance and still not change what the matter is, changes affects the physical properties of the substance.

Chemical properties describes the substances ability to change to have different properties and a new matter, changes when a substances is made to something else but has the same properties.
