Solution: This image represents a particulate view of a sample of matter.Classify the sample according to its composition.

Problem

This image represents a particulate view of a sample of matter.
A sample of blue and gray spheres combined in pairs consisting of one blue sphere combined with one gray sphere.

Classify the sample according to its composition.

Solution

Matter is anything that has mass and volume. Matter can be

• a pure substance which is made up of a single composition

• a mixture which has a variable composition


From the image, we can see that the matter is made up of single composition of blue and gray spheres combined in pairs. Therefore, this matter is a pure substance. Pure substances can be further classified.
