Matter: Physical and Chemical Properties

1. Matter: Physical and Chemical Properties

How are substances identified? There are two major ways we can describe a substance: physical properties and chemical properties. Learn about how chemists use properties to classify matter as either a mixture or a pure substance.

Examples of Intensive & Extensive Properties of Matter

2. Examples of Intensive & Extensive Properties of Matter

This lesson will explore some examples of intensive and extensive properties to help you identify them more easily in the future. At the end of this lesson, you should be able to define intensive and extensive properties and provide examples.

States of Matter and Chemical Versus Physical Changes to Matter

3. States of Matter and Chemical Versus Physical Changes to Matter

The world around us is constantly changing. Chemists put those changes into two main categories: physical changes and chemical changes. This lesson will define and provide examples of each.

Chromatography, Distillation and Filtration: Methods of Separating Mixtures

4. Chromatography, Distillation and Filtration: Methods of Separating Mixtures

What are some ways that mixtures can be separated? Watch this video to explore several examples of ways you can separate a mixture into its individual components.

Beer's Law: Absorbance & Concentration

5. Beer's Law: Absorbance & Concentration

Beer's Law relates the absorbency of a substance to its chemical concentration. In this lesson, we'll review light transmittance and absorbance and how Beer's Law is used to determine chemical concentrations.
