    The fundamental properties that we use to measure matter in are; Inertia, Mass, Weight, Volume, Density and Specific Gravity. The Periodic table is a visual method of interpreting the chemical properties of elements which effect the measurements below.

    These measurements can be classified into two categories, intrinsic and extrinsic.

    the overall weight is equal to to another extrinsic properties

    Extrinsic properties (also called extensive), such as volume, mass, force and weight, are directly related to the amount of material being measured.

    Inertia – the resistance of an object to changes in motion (Newton’s first law).

    Mass -a) the amount of matter in an object; b) a measure of resistance to acceleration that an object has.

    Weight- Mass times the acceleration of gravity.

    Volume- the amount of space that an object occupies.

    Intrinsic properties (also called intensive) are those which are independent of the quantity of matter present. For example, the density of gold is the same no matter how much gold you have to measure. Common intrinsic properties are density and specific gravity.

    Density-units of mass per unit of volume.

    Specific Gravity-ratio of a substance’s density relative to the density of water.

    Specific heat-the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one gram of a pure substance by one degree Kelvin.
