Step 1 of 3

Key: Light Blue = main idea Purple = important parts of the main idea Green = examples Orange = key terms Pink = the definition of the key term Red = especially important Bio 101: Fundamental Building Blocks: Chemistry, Water, and pH  Chemistry’s building block: the atom  Everything that exists falls into one of two categories: matter or energy  Matter and its transformations is the subject of chemistry  Matter: anything that takes up space and has mass  Mass: a measure of the quantity of matter in any given object  Things that define mass:  How much space does an object occupy (volume)  How dense is the matter within the space  In biology think of mass as equivalent to weight  What is matter  Plato said all matter is made up of 4 primary substances: earth, air, fire, and water (I remember this part as the Avatar haha)  Democritus believed that those substances were made of smaller units that were invisible and indivisible – atoms  Matter is composed of atoms that are “invisible” to the human eye but can be divided  Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons  The 3 parts of an atom are protons, neutrons, and electrons  These 3 parts exist in a special assignment that is always the same  Protons and neutrons are packed tightly around the atom’s nucleus and electrons move around it at a certain distance proton (positive charge) -e neutron (no charge) electron shell electron (negati
