Study Notes

Matter and Its Properties

  • Matter is anything that has mass and occupies space.
  • The state and properties of matter are influenced by temperature, pressure, and the presence of other substances.

Particles of Matter

  • The particles of matter are tiny, indivisible, and indestructible units that make up matter.
  • These particles are in constant motion, and their movement increases with an increase in temperature.

Forces Between Particles

  • The force that acts between the particles of matter is the intermolecular force.
  • This force is responsible for holding particles together and giving matter its shape and structure.

Breaking a Substance

  • To break a substance, we need to overcome the intermolecular forces holding its particles together.
  • This requires energy, which can be provided through heat, light, or other forms of external energy.
