define the term element.
an element the basic unit of matter and cannot be broken down into simpler substances.
a substance is a type of matter where every particle (piece) is the same as every other particle (piece). subsances have chemicle formulas. substances are NOT mixtures.
what are 3 ways to name or describe a substance.
Chemical name, chemical formula, and common name.
know what scientist put elements with similar characteristics in columns (up and down rows) on the periodic table.
what is a chemical reaction?
a chemical reaction occurs when the starting substance change into a new sustance.
what observations might you be able to see or feel in a chemical reaction.
