matter

Matter is defined as anything that has mass and occupies space. Common examples of matter include books, water, drugs, plants, chairs, stone, air, palm nut, food, wood, table, pencil, etc.

Properties of Matter:

Two properties of matter are Physical and Chemical Properties.

Physical properties are properties associated with physical changes. For example, colour, density, size, texture, appearance, odour, density, melting point, boiling point, solubility, polarity, freezing point, volume, mass, hardness, malleability, crystalline form, taste, etc.

Chemical properties are those properties which occur when matter undergoes changes and new substances are formed. For example, burning of any substance in the air, rusting of iron, etc.
