What are Physical Properties of Matter

Physical properties of matter are categorized as Intensive:

Intensive: Properties that do not rely on the amount of the matter present.
Color Odor Malleability: The capability of a substance to be beaten into thin sheets.
Luster: How shiny a substance is.
Conductivity: The ability of a substance to permit the flow of energy or electricity.
Ductility: The ability of a substance to be drawn into thin wires.


Melting/Freezing Point: The temperature where the solid and liquid phases of a substance are in equilibrium at atmospheric pressure.

Hardness: How effortlessly a substance can be scratched.

Density: The mass of a substance divided by its volume.

Boiling Point: The temperature where the vapor pressure of a liquid is the same to the pressure on the liquid (generally atmospheric pressure).

5 Physical Properties of Matter

Matter has numerous physical properties and can exist in any of five states. The five physical properties of matter contain liquid, solid, plasma, gas and Bose condensation. The first four properties include the majority of substances seen in the world, however Bose condensation was added as the opposite of plasma.The very first state of matter contains solids. 

This group embodies four various types of solids, such as covalent, ionic, metallic solids and molecular. In general, solids have a defined shape and volume. Because the atoms in a solid stay compressed together, the solid can sustain its shape. The 2nd state of matter contains liquids.
