This quiz was made for my 2nd grade son that has a test on 3 states of matter

• 1.

### What is Matter?

• A.

It is nothing

• B.

It is what makes up all things

• C.

It is air

B. It is what makes up all things
Explanation
The correct answer is "it is what makes up all things." This answer accurately defines matter as the substance that comprises everything in the universe. Matter refers to physical substances that occupy space and have mass. It can exist in various forms such as solids, liquids, and gases. This definition aligns with scientific understanding and the basic principles of matter.

### Air takes up   _______

space
Explanation
Air takes up space because it is composed of molecules that have mass and volume. These molecules are constantly moving and colliding with each other and with the walls of their container, exerting pressure. This pressure is a result of the space occupied by the air molecules. Therefore, air takes up space just like any other matter, even though it may not be visible to the naked eye.

### What are 3 types of matter?

• A.

Solid

• B.

Liquid

• C.

Gas

• D.

Solid, liquid and gas

D. Solid, liquid and gas
Explanation
The three types of matter are solid, liquid, and gas. Solids have a definite shape and volume, with tightly packed particles. Liquids have a definite volume but take the shape of their container, with particles that are close together but can move past each other. Gases have neither a definite shape nor volume, with particles that are far apart and move freely.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### Mass is

• A.

How much matter is in a object

• B.

How much air is in a object

• C.

How much space is in a object

A. How much matter is in a object
Explanation
Mass is a measure of the amount of matter in an object. It represents the total number of atoms and molecules present in the object. Mass is independent of the object's location and is typically measured in kilograms. It is different from weight, which is the force exerted on an object due to gravity.

### Properties are how we describe

• A.

Matter

• B.

Space

• C.

A. Matter
Explanation
Properties are characteristics or qualities that help us describe and identify different things. In this case, the answer "matter" is correct because matter is one of the things that can be described and categorized using properties. Matter refers to anything that occupies space and has mass, so it can include a wide range of substances and objects, including basketballs. Therefore, matter is a suitable answer for describing the properties mentioned in the question.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### What can we use to measure matter?

• A.

Hammer

• B.

Ruler measuring cup balance

• C.

Screwdriver

B. Ruler measuring cup balance
Explanation
We can use a ruler to measure the length or size of solid objects. A measuring cup is used to measure the volume of liquids or granular substances. A balance is used to measure the weight or mass of an object. These three tools are commonly used to measure matter in different ways.
