# Quest: 5th Grade, Matter Science

Here are some science questions to help you test your knowledge of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.

The questions are chosen randomly, so this quest will be different each time you reload the page.

1. ### It increases.

No. When water freezes, it takes up more space, but the mass stays the same.
2. ### It stays the same.

Yes. When water freezes, it expands to take up more space, but its mass stays the same. Mass is the measure of how much "stuff" is there. Freezing water does not create new water or add more "stuff". It just makes the water take up more space.
3. ### It decreases.

No. The mass stays the same, even when the water freezes.
4. ### Water does not have mass.

No. Everything that is made out of matter has mass.

### Florida

SC.4.P.8.3 Explore the Law of Conservation of Mass by demonstrating that the mass of a whole object is always the same as the sum of the masses of its parts.

When you mix cornstarch and water, you get something that many science sites call Oobleck. Under pressure, it feels like a solid, but when the pressure is removed, it flows like a liquid. What state of matter is it?

This is a mixture, made up of particles of solid matter surrounded by a liquid. The mixture is not a single state of matter.

This is an important concept to understand, and it is seen in many things we use every day. A good example is the Egg States video, showing how a mixture of liquid and gas can seem to be a solid.

Before you try to decide if something is solid, liquid, gas, plasma, or some other state of matter, first make sure that it is a pure substance, and not a mixture of different states.

### Florida

SC.2.P.8.2 Identify objects and materials as solid, liquid, or gas.

### NGSS

Baking a cake is an example of:

1. ### A physical change

Partly right. Some of the changes involved in baking a cake are physical changes.
2. ### A chemical change

Partly right. Some of the changes involved in baking a cake are chemical changes.
3. ### Both

Yes! The process of baking a cake involves many changes. Some, such as water evaporating and sugar melting are physical changes. Others, such as baking powder reacting cause a change in the chemical formulas, indicating a chemical change. For more on this, read Changing How We Look at Changing
4. ### Neither

No. There are many changes involved in baking a cake.

### Florida

SC.5.P.9.1 Investigate and describe that many physical and chemical changes are affected by temperature.
