Chemistry is the branch of science that deals with the identification of the substances of which matter is composed. Also the investigation of their properties and the ways in which they interact, combine and change. Matter is based on the physical and the chemical structure and matter is made up of atoms. There are three states of matter and they are solid, liquid, and gas. The properties of a solid, liquid, and gas all depend on how the particles are packed. There are three states of matter and they are solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. The properties of solids depend on how the particles are packed and they are strong forces. The particles are closely packed in fixed positions and can not move anywhere. The solids are rigid, can’t be squashed or compressed, they have fixed shape, fixed volume and they can’t flow. The properties of liquids depend on how the particles are packed. The particles are closely packed but not as closely as in the solids. The particles move around each other and they flow. It is not rigid, they can’t be squashed, no fixed shape, and no fixed volume. The properties of gases depend on how the particles are packed, they are not packed, they are apart, and not rigid. They have no fixed shape and no fixed volume. There are two types of properties and they are physical property and chemical property. Physical properties are properties that describe the physical characteristics of a substance and not how the substance behaves chemically and it goes to
