Abdominopelvic Quadrants : right upper, right lower, left upper, right lower Describe background terminology. matter – anything that occupies space and has mass states of matter – solid, liquid, gas o solid – has definite shape and volume o liquid – has no definite shape and definite volume o gas – has no definite shape and no definite volume energy – the capacity to do work or put matter into motion o kinetic energy – energy in action o potential energy – stored energy; has the capability to do work but is not now doing so forms of energy o chemical – stored in the bonds of chemical substances (food molecules, ATP) o electrical – movement of charged particles o mechanical – energy directly involved in moving matter o radiant – energy that travels in waves (electromagnetic spectrum) Describe basic atomic structure. All matter is composed of elements, unique substances that cannot be broken down by ordinary chemical methods. The elements are listed in the periodic table. Each element is known

Unformatted text preview: by an atomic symbol. Each element is composed of particles called atoms that display the characteristic properties of that element. Physical properties are things that can be detected with our senses or measured (color, texture, boiling point). Chemical properties describe how atoms react with other atoms. An atom has three subatomic particles – protons, neutrons, and electrons. The central nucleus of an atom is composed of protons and neutrons. Protons are positively charged; neutrons are neutral (no charge). The nucleus is surrounded by negatively charged electrons orbiting in an electron cloud. An atom has an overall neutral charge because there are equal numbers of protons and electrons. Elements can be identified by their atomic numbers. The atomic number is the number of protons in an element. It is written as a subscript to the left of the atomic symbol....
