What is Matter ? by: wilzayvian

What is matter ? Matter is anything that takes up space. There are to things that make up matter pure substance and mixture.

Ex.This stuff takes up space so that means it's matter.

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).

This is a example of pure substance this is gold.

Element is if all atoms in a substance have the same identity that substance is an element.

This is a example of elements.

A compound is a thing that is composed of two or more separate elements.

This is a example of a compound.

A mixture is a material system made up of two or more different substances which are mixed but are not combined chemically. A mixture refers to the physical combination of two or more substances in which the identities are retained and are mixed in the form of solutions, suspensions, and colloids.

This is a example of mixture

This is a homogeneous: They are part of the same kind; alike.

This is a example

A solution is a homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances. In such a mixture, a solute is a substance dissolved in another substance, known as a solvent.

This is an example of a solution.

Heterogeneous Mixtures. A mixture is a combination of two or more pure substances in which the original substances retain their chemical properties. In some mixtures, the initial substances cannot be detected after they have been mixed.

This is a example of Heterogeneous.

A suspension is a heterogeneous mixture in which solute-like particles settle out of a solvent-like phase some time after their introduction. We apply the word 'suspension' when particles are big enough to eventually settle. If the particles are too small to ever settle, they are said to form a colloid.

This is example of a suspension.

This is the meaning of 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.

This is a example of a colloid.
