Chemical composition refers to the elements and their proportions in that mineral. For instance, table salt has equal parts sodium and chlorine. Its chemical composition is NaCl. Or, quartz is one part silicon and two parts oxygen. Its chemical composition is SiO2.
The chemical composition of a mineral is important because it tells what the mineral is.
it means that the chemical build up of the mineral never changes
The color of a mineral sample is determined by its chemical composition
Each known mineral has a specific chemical composition.
ALL of the properties of a mineral depend on it's chemical composition.
it means a naturally-occaring, inorganic solid that has a crystal structure and a definite chemical composition
Yes. Every mineral has a chemical composition.
Minerals are basically chemicals in a solid form.A2. Part of the definition of a mineral is that it has a known chemical composition. If its composition were variable, it would not qualify under the definition.
Magma is not a mineral becauseIt is liquid.It does not have a definite chemical composition.
A mineral is a naturally occuring chemical compound. A mineral is different from a rock/boulder which can be an aggregate of minerals, or non minerals and does not have a specific chemical composition as a mineral does
by its texture, shape, color and chemical composition
It is simple: each mineral has different chemical and physical properties; also the chemical composition is different.
Mineral grains are crystals or pieces of crystals that vary widely in chemicalcomposition
No. a mineral is a compound of fixed chemical composition and of fixed crystal structure.
In mineralogy, definite chemical composition refers to a characteristic that a substance must possess to meet the definition of a mineral. It is the narrow parameter of chemical compositions that a substance must have to be described as a particular mineral separate from other minerals.
chemical composition mean it is made of body fluid.
The chemical composition must be determined by analytical methods.
Quartz is silicon dioxide (SiO2).
a mineral is defined as any inorganic substance that occurs in nature and has a definite chemical composition.
The mineral is carbon: allotropes include diamond, graphite and coal.
