What Is Matter? By: Mackenzie matthews

Matter-physical substance in general, as distinct from mind and spirit; (in physics) that which occupies space and possesses rest mass, especially as distinct from energy.

A basketball is matter.

Here is a chart.


Pure Substance-The pure substance within chemistry is a very simple concept to grasp. Pure substances are defined as substances that are made of only one type of atom or only one type of molecule (a group of atoms bonded together). The measure of whether a substance is pure is known as purity.


Element- a part or aspect of something abstract, especially one that is essential or characteristic.


Compound-a thing that is composed of two or more separate elements; a mixture.

Here is a video of element and compound.


Mixtures-a substance made by mixing other substances together.

M&M are a mixture.

Here is how M&M are a mixture,


Homogeneous-of the same kind; alike.


Heterogeneous-diverse in character or content.

Here is a video of homogeneous and heterogeneous.


Solution-a liquid mixture in which the minor component (the solute) is uniformly distributed within the major component (the solvent).


Suspension-the action of suspending someone or something or the condition of being suspended, in particular.

Apple juice is a example of solution.


Colloid-a homogeneous, noncrystalline substance consisting of large molecules or ultramicroscopic particles of one substance dispersed through a second substance. Colloids include gels, sols, and emulsions; the particles do not settle and cannot be separated out by ordinary filtering or centrifuging like those in a suspension.

Whip cream is a example of colloid.

Here is a video about solution, suspension, and colloid.
