Properties of Matter Chemistry
Properties of Matter Chemistry: The chemical property of a substance refers to its property that shows its effect at the time of chemical reaction or later. For example, iron reacting with oxygen to make it rust is a chemical property of iron.
All the properties of matter are either physical or chemical and either extensive or intensive. Extensive properties based on volume and measurement, such as mass and volume, other dark properties, such as color and density, do not depend on the amount of matter.
Both broad and deep qualities are physical properties, Which means – they can be measure without chemical identification of the substance. For example, the freezing point of a substance is a physical property: when water freezes, it is still water (H2O) but is in a different physical state.
A chemical property is one of the properties of any material that becomes apparent during a chemical reaction; That is, any property that can establish by changing the chemical identity of a substance.
Chemical properties cannot determine only by the sighting or touching of a substance. The internal structure of a substance must affect to examine its chemical properties.
The chemical properties of a substance describe its “ability” to undergo chemical changes based on composition. Which elements, electrons, exist for the ability of chemical change.
For example, hydrogen has the ability to ignite and explode under the right conditions. It is a chemical property. Zinc reacts with hydrochloric acid to produce hydrogen gas. It is a chemical property.
Some examples of chemical properties:
- Reacting with one or more chemicals
- Coordination number
- Chemical stability
- Heat of combustion
