Let us learn about the Classification of Matter in this science tuition lesson.

There are different types of matter in the world. What we drink, what we eat is matter. Even we are a matter. But what exactly is matter?

Anything which occupies space and has its own mass is matter. Matter can be felt by us. Some examples of matter are air, water, food, table, pen, gold, sand, fruits, plants, trees, bottle, plastic, stones, oil, fan, chair etc. These things occupy space and have their own masses.

Matter can be classified into two groups, living things and non-living things. Living things can be further classified into two groups namely plants or animals. While on the other hand, non-living things can be classified into three groups: elements, compounds and mixtures. These matters are sorted into groups according to their characteristic properties. Some examples of physical properties include strength, elasticity, hardness and solubility.

Strength refers to an object’s ability to withstand a heavy load without breaking. For example, steel can be described as strong while chalk is described as weak. Elasticity refers to an object’s ability to return to its original shape after stretching. For example, rubber is elastic while plasticine is non-elastic. Solubility refers to the maximum quantity of a substance which can dissolve in a given quantity of a liquid. For example, sugar is soluble in water but sand is insoluble.
