Defined as the science that deals with the
study of the structure and properties of matter
and the principles governing the changes it


1. Organic study of carbon compounds

2. Inorganic study of all the properties and
characteristics of other elements
3. Analytical analysis and identification of
4. Physical concerned with the natural laws and
principles governing both physical and chemical

Elements in the study of

Matter anything that occupies space and

has mass
Mass the amount of matter present in a
Weight is the force needed to pull matter
towards the center of the earth

Properties of Matter

Defined as characteristics that differentiate a

substance from all other substances

Properties of Matter
Intrinsic are properties that are independent of
the size and shape of a substance. Example:
temperature, pressure
Extrinsic are properties that are related to size
and shape. Example: volume, mass
Physical properties that matter can show
without being destroyed
Chemical are properties which matter can show
by losing its identity
Exothermic Changes are physical or chemical
changes that causes the release of energy from
the substance to its surroundings
Endothermic Changes are physical or chemical
changes where energy is absorbed by a

Classification of Matter
Pure Substance a form of matter that cannot be
separated into two or more forms except by
means of a chemical change. It is also
characterized as having definite composition
and a definite boiling point.
a. Elements are pure substances that cannot
be decomposed further into simpler substances
by means of chemical change
b. Compounds a pure substance with
characterized by constant composition that can
be broken down into elements by means of a
chemical process

Classification of Matter
Mixture a form of matter that can be separated
into pure substances by means of physical
change. These substances have no definite
composition nor boiling point.
a. Homogeneous mixtures whose
composition are uniform and are not readily
distinguishable. Solutions are considered as
homogeneous mixtures.
b. Heterogeneous mixtures whose parts are
readily visible and easily identifiable. Colloids
are considered as heterogeneous mixtures.

Laws governing chemical


Law of Conservation of Mass Matter can

neither be created nor destroyed
Law of Conservation of Energy Matter can
neither be created nor destroyed but can be
transformed from one form to another. Proposed
by Antoine Lavoisier.
Law of Definite Composition Atoms combine
in specific ratios when they form compounds. A
pure compound is always made up of the same
constituent elements combined in definite
proportion by weight
Law of Multiple Proportion When two
elements react to form one compound, the
different weights of one that combine with the

Atomic Theory Atomic

Atom the smallest particle of matter; derived
from the greek word atomos, which means
uncut or indivisible
Molecule the smallest particle in a compound
Anode positively-charged electrode
Cathode negatively-charged electrode

Atomic Number
Equal to the number of protons in the nucleus of an

Mass Number / Atomic

Equal to the sum of the number of protons and the
number of neutrons in an atom

Formula Weight
Used for compounds made up of ions and that
primarily have ionic bonds
Example: Formula weight of H20:
O = 1 x 16
= 16
Formula Weight = 18 amu

Molecular Weight
Used for compounds made up of molecules and
that primarily have covalent bonds

A counting number unit that consists of 6.022 x
1023 particles (atoms, molecules or ions). This
number is called Avogadros number

MOLE = (mass) / (molecular

Example: Calculate the number of molecules in
24.5 g of CO2.

Example: Calculate the volume in cubic cm

occupied by 3.5 x 1026 atoms of aluminum if the
density of Al is 2.70 g/cm3.

Methods of expressing solution

Percent by mass
%M = (mass of substance) /
(mass of solution)
Percent by volume
%V = (volume of substance) / (volume
of solution)
Weight volume fraction (W/V)
W/V = (weight of solute, g) / (volume of
solution, ml)
Mole fraction (nf)
nf = (moles of solute) / (moles of

Methods of expressing solution

Molarity (M)
M = (moles of solute) / (volume
of solution)
Molality (m)
m = (moles of solute) / (kilograms of
Normality (N)
N = (equivalent of solute) / (liters of
equivalent of solute = (weight nfe) /
(molecular weight)
nfe = number of free electrons

Balancing Equations

Count the number of atoms of each element on

the reactant side and product side
Find out which atoms are unbalanced
Balance one element at a time by assigning
coefficients to each compound or formula
Verify whether balance has been achieved

Types of chemical reactions
