### List the six steps of the scientific method in order.

1. Define the problem 2.Research the data 3.Form the hypothesis 4.experment to test the hypothesis 5.record results 6.draw conclusion
Explanation
The scientific method is a systematic approach used to investigate and understand phenomena in the natural world. The six steps of the scientific method in order are as follows: 1. Define the problem, which involves identifying and clearly stating the question or issue to be investigated. 2. Research the data, which involves gathering information and existing knowledge related to the problem. 3. Form the hypothesis, which is a proposed explanation or prediction based on the available data. 4. Experiment to test the hypothesis, which involves designing and conducting experiments to gather new data and evidence. 5. Record results, which involves collecting and analyzing the data obtained from the experiments. 6. Draw conclusions, which involves interpreting the results and determining whether the hypothesis is supported or rejected based on the evidence gathered.

• D.

Mass, weight

• E.

Solids,liquids,plasma

C. Solids , liquids , plasma, gasses
Explanation
The four phases of matter are solids, liquids, plasma, and gases. Solids have a definite shape and volume, while liquids have a definite volume but take the shape of their container. Plasma is a highly ionized gas that conducts electricity, and gases have neither a definite shape nor volume and can expand to fill their container.

### Words associated with a chemical change include

• A.

Reacts with, burns

• B.

Melting, boiling

• C.

• E.

Freezing

A. Reacts with, burns
Explanation
The words "reacts with" and "burns" are associated with a chemical change because they indicate a reaction or combustion process where a substance interacts with another substance, resulting in a chemical transformation and the release of energy. These words imply that a chemical reaction is occurring, leading to a change in the composition and properties of the substances involved.

### Words associated with physical change include

• A.

Freezing, boiling, melting, reacts with

• B.

Vaporizing and dissolving, burns

• C.

Reacts with burns

• D.

Meliting , boling and freezing, sublimating.

• E.

Burns, condensating.

D. Meliting , boling and freezing, sublimating.
Explanation
The words associated with physical change include melting, boiling, freezing, and sublimating. These words describe the different processes in which a substance changes its physical state. Melting refers to the change from a solid to a liquid, boiling is the change from a liquid to a gas, freezing is the change from a liquid to a solid, and sublimating is the change from a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state. These processes do not involve any chemical reactions and only affect the physical properties of the substance.

### Define Accuracey

refers to how close,comes to its accepted value
Explanation
The definition provided accurately explains accuracy. Accuracy is the measure of how close a value or measurement is to its accepted or true value. It indicates the level of precision and correctness in a measurement or calculation.

### Define precision

refers to how often the same measurements, etc can be repeated.
Explanation
The given answer is incorrect. Precision refers to the degree of agreement or consistency between repeated measurements or observations of the same quantity. It is not about how often the measurements can be repeated, but rather about the consistency of the results when the measurements are repeated. A high precision means that repeated measurements will closely agree with each other, while a low precision means that repeated measurements will vary widely.
