natural elementselements 1-92
synthetic elementselements 93-?
metalssubstances which have luster, conduct heat and electricity, ductile, and malleable
nonmetalssubstances which are poor thermal and electrical conductors and are too brittle
metalloidssubstances having properties of both metals and nonmetals
symbolsrepresents not only the element but also stands for one atom of that element
physical propertiesthose which can be determined with causing a change in the identity of a material
extensive propertiesdepend on the amount of material present
intensive propertiesdepends upon the nature of the material itself
chemical propertiesthose which describe the behavior of a material in reactions that alter its identity
physical changethose in which the identifying properties of a material remain unchanged, only physical properties altered
chemical changethose in which different materials with new properties are formed
endothermic reactionheat energy absorbed
exothermic reactionheat energy liberated
potential energyenergy of position
kinetic energyenergy of motion
law of conservation of mattermatter can neither be created nor destroyed
law of conservation of energyenergy can neither be created nor destroyed
definitiona measure of the average kinetic energy of the molecules in a material
