A material is any substance, which is used to make an object. Materials are made up of different types of matter. Materials can be natural or man-made. Molecules are compactly arranged in solids, loosely packed in liquids and are far apart in gases.
The properties of matter are the characteristics, which help us to identify them. Matter has both chemical and physical properties. Chemical properties describe how a substance reacts chemically with another. They deal with the molecular composition of matter.
In the absence of any electrical or magnetic field, the cathode rays strike the fluorescent screen at point Those, and can be seen as a bright spot there. When a high electric field is applied across the plates P1 and P2 the spot only the screen moves towards the positively charged plate.
Matter can be classified into various groups only the basis of its physical characteristics. Two typical modes of classification are described below:- (a) Solid state (b) Liquid state (c) Gaseous stat.
Matter is the material of which the universe is composed of. Matter may be defined as something that occupies space, possess mass, and offers resistance to any stress (forces applied on it).
