Chapter 2: The chemistry of Living things Chemistry o The study of matter and energy o Matter is the physical stuff, anything that has mass and occupies space. Energy is the power to do work. A. All matter consists of Elements made of atoms Element, a fundamental form of matter that cannot be broken down to a simpler form. Atoms, the smallest functional unit, consists of o Protons: Positive charge, have mass o Neutrons: No charge, have mass o Electrons: negative charge, have no discernable mass Isotopes, atoms with either more or fewer neutrons than the usual number for that element. o Same element, same atomic number= same number of protons and electrons o Different number of ne
