Concept of Matter
Explain concept of matter
Matter is anything that has mass and occupies space. Therefore, anything around us provided it has mass and can occupy the space, is termed as matter. There are many kinds of matter. Can you mention some? The word matter is used to cover all the substances and materials from which the earth and universe is composed of. These include all materials around us such as water, soil, plants, animals, air, clothes, etc.
Any particular kind of matter is called a substance. Substances include elements and compounds. An element is a substance which is the limit of chemical analysis. When two or more elements are combined chemically, a compound is formed. Matter is made up of atoms, ions or molecules. You will learn more about this later.
