    (p. 321)
  12. Which of these is true of an ice cube?
    It is made of moving, closely-packed, tiny particles.
  13. What can you tell about matter from how its particles move?
    If it is a solid, liquid or gas.
  14. Which would cause the mass of an object to change?
    Subtracting matter from the object.
  15. Which can you use to compare and measure the mass of two objects?
    a balance
  16. Which of these is a chemical change?
    a nail rusts
  17. Explain what you can tell about two objects if one floats in water and the other sinks.
    Well, the one that sinks has more density than the one that floats.
  18. Explain what is alike and what is different about mixtures and solutions.
    Mixtures and solutions are alike because substaqnces are combined.

    They are different because in a solution, one is dissolved by the other and in a mixture, the substances keep their individual properties.
