Anything that takes up space or has mass is matter. Under certain conditions matter can be a solid, liquid, gas or plasma. Different states of matter can be combined in suspensions, and solutions and mixtures can be taken apart. Exploring the physical and chemical properties of matter provides insight into nature and a glimpse at how scientists and engineers use this knowledge to shape our world.
