DE.2. Materials and Their Properties
2.1. Properties and Structure of Materials
Enduring Understanding: The structures of materials determine their properties.
2.1.C. Some physical properties, such as mass and volume, depend upon the amount of material. Other physical properties, such as density and melting point, are independent of the quantity of material. Density and melting point are unique physical properties for a material. Tools such as microscopes, scales, beakers, graduated cylinders, Celsius thermometers, and metric rulers are used to measure physical properties. (Level: Essential)
