How does matter behave?
first lets clarify what is matter. in its general use, matter is everything that is not virtual. example of virtual things : mathematics, ideas, philosophy...
Even "light" is matter as it can be attracted by gravity.
So, this is what matter is, its made of something.
lets go with the other part of your question.
Matter can be found basically in 3 phases (lets put aside the 4th phase: plasma)
solid, liquid, gases.
in a solid, molecules can only vibrate.
in a liquid, molecules can vibrate and rotate on each other
in a gas, molecules can vibrate, rotate and slide
this is how matter behave.
If you want to know what happen when you mix stuff like salt in water, then this has to do with solubility, size of particle and interstice. see link for in depth explanation on "solubility".
Liquid is a state of matter so all liquid is matter. For loose meaning, if the matter mean solid or particles with exact shape then The question may ask about Fluidized bed when in presence of gas flow through bed of sand (matter), the sand behave like liquid. It may referred to some substance in liquid state but so viscous and behave like a solid e.g. glass (SiO2) that took hundred of year to flow.
Chemistry is the branch of science which deals with the properties, composition and the structure of matter. It also deals with chemical reactions, changes in matter, and the principles which govern these changes. In more simple terms it is about substances, how they behave and how we can make new substances.
Perhaps you care to elaborate...if not, then ask yourself: Why do Frenchmen behave like Frenchmen Why do Germans behave like Germans Why do Gambians behave like Gambians Why do Norwegians behave like Norwegians Why do Nepalese behave like Nepalese Why do Venezuelans behave like Venezuelans. Get the point?
No. Black holes exist where gravity is so powerful that nothing can get out, not even light. "Dark Matter" is a vague hypothesis about the need for some additional mass that needs to exist in the galaxy in order to explain the way the galaxy does behave. We're not sure that "dark matter" exists at all.
Metals have many properties like conductivity of heat and electricity, ductility, malleability etcetera. There is no chemical bonding between the same molecules of the metal elements or the alloys. But there is physical type of bonding between the molecules of the elements. You have those extra electrons present in the metal blocks. They form the cloud of electrons, which move freely across the total quantity of the metal blocks. That forms the physical bonding between…
It is not a form of matter since it does not take up space. _________ On the other hand, as electromagnetic radiation it has some curious properties that are understood only within Quantum Theory. Light consists of photons which are massless particles [some speculate that they have a very, very tiny amount of mass]. Light appears sometimes to behave like particles, and it appears sometimes to behave like waves. You cannot call it exclusively one…
Fermionic condensate. It is when fermions (matter particles) at an extremely low temperature stop behaving as independent particles. The Pauli exclusion principle prevents fermions from entering this quantum state, but two paired fermions can behave as a boson (a particle that carries energy) which can.
