Explaining Matter with Elements, Atoms, and Molecules (Student Edition)

The Explaining Matter With Elements, Atoms, and Molecules Interactive E-book explores the properties of substances and elements and examines the investigative evidence for the atoms and molecules that make up all matter. Certain properties can be used to distinguish substances and changes in substances. Building on this idea, patterns of properties of elements and substances led scientists to the development of the periodic table of elements. These properties and the way different atoms and molecules behave can help predict how molecules will arrange themselves in different states and if and how they will react with other molecules.
