6.2: Physical Science

6.2.1: Matter

6.2.1.2: Substances can undergo physical changes which do not change the composition or the total mass of the substance in a closed system.

6.2.1.2.2: Describe how mass is conserved during a physical change in a closed system.

 Chemical Changes
 Chemical Equations

6.2.1.2.3: Use the relationship between heat and the motion and arrangement of particles in solids, liquids and gases to explain melting, freezing, condensation and evaporation.
