Physical Properties Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

Those characteristics that can be observed without changing the identity of the substance such as size, shape, luster, conductivity, malleabilty, and magnetic attraction. Physical Property
Likely to break, snap, or crack when subjected to pressure. Brittle
The amount of matter in a given space or volume, a relationship between mass and volume. Density
A property that describes if heat or electrical charges pass through material easily. Its also one of the most reliable test in sorting materials. Conductivity
The way the surface of a mineral reflects light; either metallic or non-metallic such as silky, dull, glassy, or resinous. Luster
A property that describes the ability of the material to be rolled or hammered into thin sheets. Malleabilty
A property that describes if the material is magnetic. Magnetism
A property that describes if the material has the ability to be pulled into thin wire without breaking. Ductility
The physical forms that matter can take; solid, liquid, gas, or plasma. Phase of Matter
The ability of one substance to be dissolved into another. Solubility
These elements are Poor Conductors of heat and electricity, dull, Brittle solids, Most are gases at room temperature, Low density, Low melting point, Not malleable, and Not ductile. Nonmetal
These elements are Malleable, Ductile, Luster, High Density, Good Conductors of heat and electricity, High melting point, and hardness. Metals
These elements can be shiny or dull, conductivity of heat and electricity are better than nonmetals but not as good as metals. Solid at room temperature. Ductile, and Malleable. Metalloids
