1.2 Investigating Matter

Matter is made up of everything and anything, your made up of matter, an apple is made up of matter, it is made up of anything with mass or takes up space. Matter is made up of atoms and molecules. The terms of changes of state are evaporation, sublimation, condensation, and solidification. Easy ways to remember these are evaporation: liquid to gas so remember evaporation by water evaporating into the air. Condensation: a gas to liquid so remember from the water on the window when it’s foggy outside. Solidification: liquid to a solid just think of ice cubes in the freezer. Sublimation: solid to a gas and I just remember this one I don’t have any examples. The Kinetic Molecule theory is when a gas with a lot of atoms or molecules are constant moving in a random direction.
