    Definition of Chemistry
  2. A substance which is uniform in composition.

    Homogeneous Mixture
  3. A substance/matter with no difinitive composition.

    Heterogeneos Mixture
  4. Anything that has mass and occupies volume.
    Definition of Matter
  5. A material which can't be broken down or changed by into another substance by chemical means.

    (pure substance)
  6. A pure substance consisting of two or more elements which can be seperated into a simpler substance by chemical reaction.
  7. Mass cannot be created/destroyed, although it may be rearranged in space
    Law of Conservation of Mass
  8. The ability to do work
    Definition of Energy
  9. Energy of Motion
    Kinetic Energy
  10. Energy that is inherent in a system before an act or process occurs.
    Potential Energy
  11. Energy can neither be created or destroyed it can only be transformed from one state to another.
    Law of Conservation of Energy

    Organic Chemistry
  14. The study of compounds produced by living organisms.
  15. The study of those types of matter and changes in matter related to the disinfection and preservation of a human remains.
    Embalming Chemistry
  16. The study of those physical and chemical changes in the human body that are caused by the process of death.

  21. The standard unit of Energy is ..........................
  22. The standard unit of Heat is ..............
  23. Every thing must break down .... systems tend to go from higher order to lower order. " random order" Most important law.
    Law of Entropy
  24. A substance will move from an area of high consentration to a area of lower consentration.
    Law of Diffusion
  25. All elements exept two try to get 8 electrons to there valance shell. Lower energy Level.
    Octet Rule
  26. All matter is made up of Atoms.
    Atomic Theory
  27. Highly Ordered
    Least Energy
    Particles vibrate in place
    Maintain shape and volume
    May melt or Sublimate
    • "States of Matter"
    • Solid
  28. Less ordered than solids, more ordered than gases
    Takes shape of container, maintains volume
    Particles vibrate and flow around each other
    • "States of Matter"
    • Liquids
  29. Least ordered phase
    Expandes to fill a space - volume variable
    Highly energetic
    • "States of Matter"
    • Gases
  30. Matter that skips Liquid phase. Goes from Solid to Gas
  31. How thick a Liquid is .... is called.
  32. Discribes matter but doesn't Identify
    Extensive Properties of matter
  33. Discribes matter and Identifies
    Intensive Properties of matter
  34. Properties of matter that describe, but do not change, a substance.
    Physical Properties
