Density, Magnetism, Conductivity, Solubility, Ductility, Malleability, and States of Matter.
Okay class, today we will be speaking about the 7 Physical Properties of matter.
Physial Science G8 I can describe the physical properties of an object
First off, We must know the states of matter. Solids, Liquids, and Gases. Each one has a density. The compactness of a substance.
Magnetism is also a physical phenomenon produced by the motion of electric charge, resulting in attractive and repulsive forces between objects.
Conductivity is what occurs whenever electricity flows through another object. Wires, power lines, and many other things like this have conductivity.
Ductility is whenever a substance or an object is put under stress and stretches.
Malleability is a substance's ability to deform under pressure (compressive stress). If malleable, a material may be flattened into thin sheets. Malleable materials can be flattened into metal leaf. Many metals can someitmes have ductility as well.
Solubility is a chemical property referring to the ability for a given substance, the solute, to dissolve in a solvent.
