What are the 3 basic forms that matter exist in?
- 1) Solids
- 2) Liquids
- 3) Gases
Matter with definite weight, volume, & shape.
Matter with definite weight & volume, but NO shape.
Matter with definite weight, but indefinite volume & shape.
List the 2 ways that matter can be changed from to another.
- 1) Physical Change:
- Change in the physical characteristics of a substance without creating a new substance.
- 2) Chemical Change:
- Change in a substance that creates a new substance with chemical characteristics different from those of the original substance.
Deals with all matter that is now living or was alive at one time. Has carbone present, such as plants and animals.
Studies all matter that is not alive. Has never been alive & does not contain carbon, such as rocks,water & minerals.

- 2) Oxygen
- 3) Hydrogen
- 4) Nitrogen
- 5) Sulfer
Are smallest comlpete unit of an element.
List & define the 3 main parts of an Atom.
1) Protons- Have positve electrical charge & identify the atom.
2) Neutrons- Have no electrical charge, they are neutral (it determines the weight of the atom).
3) Electrons- Have a negitive electrical charge. They make it possible for atoms to unite with other atoms to form bonds, under sertain circumstances.
When unstable atoms combine chemically by sharing electrons, they form a molecule. A molecule is two or more atoms joined together by a chemical bond.
Define a Compound:
Different atoms joined together as molecules become the smallest part of a compound.
Amino Acids join together in chains to become (a)__
Hair is made of (a)__% Keratin protein & (b)__% trace minerals.
List the 4 side bonds:

- 4) van der Waal's Forces
Which side bond is the most important when perming or chemical relaxing?
List the 6 stages of hair formation:
1) Hair begins with individual atoms, that smallest unit of matter.
2) These atoms unit by sharing electrons to become molecules of amino acids.
3) One end of one amino acid bonds to the opposite end of another to form the peptide or end bond.
4) The amino acids create polypeptide protein chains.
5) The individual protein chains bond side-to-side to other chains by hydrogen, salt, disulfide bonds & van der Waal's Forces.
6) The bonding of protein chains to other protein chains make human hair.
What does pH stand for?
What is pH?
A unit of measurement that indicates whether a substance is acidic, neutral, or alkaline.
