NOTE

Matter

Matter is a substance made up of various types of particles that occupies physical space

An atom is the basic building block of chemistry. It is the smallest unit into which matter can be divided without the release of electrically charged particles. It also is the smallest unit of matter that has the characteristic properties of a chemical element.

There are three states of matter: solid; liquid and gas.

Properties of the three states of matter

Solids

1. Solid are characterized by structural rigidity and resistance to changes of shape or volume.
2. Unlike a liquid, a solid object does not flow to take on the shape of its container
3. it does expands to fill the entire volume available to it like a gas

Examples of Solids

1. Gold.
2. Wood.
3. Sand.
4. Steel.
5. Brick.
6. Rock.
7. Copper.
8. Brass.

Liquids

1. Liquids have fixed volume, but not fixed shape. ...
2. Particles of Liquids are closely to each other (but not as close as solids)
3. Liquid does not fill container completely like gases. ...
4. Liquids are able to flow easily as particles are able to slide over each other.

Examples of Liquids

1. Water.
2. Milk.
3. Blood.
4. Urine.
5. Gasoline.
6. Mercury (an element)
7. Bromine (an element)
8. Wine

Gases

Properties of gases

1. they are easy to compress
2. they expand to fill their containers
3. they occupy far more space than the liquids or solids from which they form.

Examples of gases include

1. Hydrogen.
2. Nitrogen.
3. Oxygen.
4. Carbon Dioxide.
5. Carbon Monoxide.
6. Water Vapour.
7. Helium.
8. Neon.

EVALUATION:    1. Explain the meaning of Matter

1. Explain the meaning of atom as it relates to matter
2. Mention the three states of matter
3. Describe two properties each of
4. solids
5. liquids
6. gases
7. Give three examples each of
8. solids
9. liquids
10. gases

CLASSWORK: As in evaluation

CONCLUSION: The teacher commends the pupils positively

PERIOD 2 AND 3: Gymnastics. Writing and sending mails
