Many educators consider 9th grade as an important phase of school education. This is when

and mathematics get really difficult. Having a vast syllabus and difficult to understand topics, students begin to lose concentration. Students need to be introduced to new learning habits at this stage that will keep them engaged and glued to their reading material.

Matter in Our Surrounding

everything in this universe is made up of material which scientists have named matter. The air we breathe, the food we eat, stars, plants, and animals even a small drop of water or a particle of sand is made up of matter. Only one thing common to all above is they all have mass and volume that is they occupy space.
Matter exists in three common states solid, liquid and gaseous. Solids tend to have a constant shape and a constant volume, liquids tend to take the shape of the container, but the volume remains constant, gases, on the other hand, tend to take the shape of the container and the volume of the container. The states of matter are inter-convertible, this conversion is possible either by changing the temperature or operation or both.
Some common terms to describe the change from one state to another are fusion.
  • Fusion is the change from solid to liquid for example solid wax.
  • Solidification is the change of state from liquid to solid.
  • Vaporization is the change of state from liquid to gas and
  • Condensation is the change of state from gas to liquid
  • Sublimation is the change of state from gas to solid or vice-versa without going into the liquid state, for example, the burning of camphor.

Is matter around us pure?

An unadulterated substance is the one that comprises of a solitary sort of particles i.e. every single constituent molecule of the substance has a similar concoction nature. An unadulterated substance can be delegated components or mixes

Atoms and Molecules

Atoms are the building blocks of all material. Atoms are made up of three types of particles called protons, neutrons, and electrons. An atom has a central nucleus with protons and neutrons in it. Protons are positively charged, and neutrons have no charge. So, the nucleus is positively charged. Protons and neutrons are collectively called nucleons. Electrons are negatively charged and are located in the nucleus. An atom has the same number of negatively charged electrons as it has positively charged protons in the nucleus. Therefore, atoms are electrically neutral. Electrons are distributed in a definite path around the nucleus and are called shells or orbits.  The electrons present in the outermost shell of an atom are called valence electrons and the shell which valence electrons occupy is called the valence shell.
A molecule is, in general, a group of two or more atoms that are chemically bonded together. Atoms combine chemically by external factors such as heat and light. This leads to the formation of molecules. During the formation of a molecule, atoms lose their valence electrons or gain electrons from other atoms. For instance, if two pieces of wax are to be joined, they are heated. After heating, the two pieces are pressed together to form a single structure. Here, heat is the chemical factor which is responsible for joining the molecules of the wax pieces.

The Fundamental Unit of Life

The body of every organism is made of small units that are called cells, now we can say that cell is the fundamental and structural unit of life. The cell was first discovered by Robert in 1665, we observed that just like the honeycomb, organisms also have small compartments and he named these compartments as cells.
Now let’s see the structure of a cell, cells are highly organized and have some specialized cell organelles, these organelles are as you know:
  • Ribosomes
  • Nucleus
  • Mitochondria
  • Cytoskeleton
  • Golgi apparatus
  • Rough endoplasmic reticulum
  • Smooth endoplasmic reticulum
  • Plasma membrane
  • Paroxysm and
  • Sensuous
The cells are broadly classified into two types first is the probiotic cell and the second is a eukaryotic cell. Pro means before and Eukaryotic means nucleus. Prokaryotic cells do not have the well-defined nucleus and well-defined cell organelles, but on the other hand, eukaryotic cells are well-defined nucleus and well-defined cell organelles.

Tissue

There are groups of cells which carry out different functions, for example, all cells of type A will carry out the function of respiration and cells of type B will carry out the process of digestion. Each cluster of cells is called a tissue and each tissue carries out a specific function, such organisms with many tissues are called multicellular organisms. Multicellular organisms have tissues in their bodies which are placed at specific places to carry out specific functions this is called the division of labor in the organism’s body. The muscles are the example of the human tissue that helps movement by contraction and relaxation. Do you know that blood is a tissue? Yes! blood helps transport nutrients, hormones and waste materials as well blood is the connective tissue of the human body.
Let us look at plants now, Plants do not have the same tissues as humans do but they do have tissues. Let us see what the considerable differences between the two are:
Plants are stationary, and their movement is restricted so a closer look at a plant tissue will make you realize that most of them have dead tissues. Yes! dead tissues and why do you think plants need dead tissues? The answer is quite simple, Plants only need mechanical support hence they do not need living tissues, dead tissues serve the purpose of giving support to plants and they need very little maintenance.

Motion

Motion is changing position if something’s position or location is staying the same. Well, it’s not moving so the position is an important concept, it’s not just position that’s important, it’s this idea of changing position which actually leads us to the next concept velocity or speed which measures how quickly an object’s position changes over. There are several types of motion
  1. Linear Motion: The linear or Translatory motion is that motion in which body moves in straight lines or any curved path. Example a man running on the straight road.
  2. Rotatory Motion: Rotatory motion, also referred to as rotational motion or circular motion, is the physical motion that happens when an object rotates or spins on an axis. For example, the rotatory motion of planets on its axis.
  3. Oscillatory Motion: Any particle that undergoes to and fro motion in the small interval of time and vibration is said to be in vibratory motion. For example, a tuning fork set to vibrate is a classic example of this.

Law of motion

Physics is about how things move and why things move, it was Sir Isaac Newton who discovered the three laws of motion
  1. The first law of motion is also called the law of inertia: It states that objects will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an external unbalanced force
  2. Newton’s second law states acceleration of an object depends on the mass of the object and the amount of force applied in mathematical terms Newton’s second law states that force is the product of mass and acceleration To cause an object to accelerate or speed up, a force must be applied, the more force you apply the quicker you accelerate.
Force = Mass x Acceleration
  1. Newton’s third law says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. To understand this, see what happens when you drop a tennis ball as the tennis ball hits the floor it causes a downward force on the floor. This is the action; the floor reacts by pushing on the ball the same force but in the opposite direction. Action-Reaction together, the floor and the ball form what’s called the action-reaction pair.
