Properties of Matter

Lesson Summary

  • Matter is anything that has mass and volume. Mass is the amount of matter in a substance. Volume is the amount of space matter takes up.
  • Matter has both physical and chemical properties. Physical properties can be measured or observed without matter changing to a different substance.
  • Chemical properties of matter can be measured or observed only when matter undergoes a change to become an entirely different substance.
