Matter whose composition may vary from one sample to another two or more types of atoms or molecules combined in variable proportions samples have different characteristics elements substances that cannot be broken down into simpler substances by chemical reactions basic building blocks of matter composed of single type of atom. Start studying chapter 3 atoms the building blocks of matter learn vocabulary terms and more with flashcards games and other study tools atoms are different elements combine in simple whole number ratios to form chemical compounds 5 in chemical reactions atoms are combined seperated or rearranged atoms the building blocks of . Chemicals form the basic building blocks of matter in living things as well as nonliving things molecules are formed by chemical bonds that join elements and make substances chemical reactions are the basis of transformations of molecules into entirely different substances the release of energy and the processes of life. Atoms are the building blocks of matter chapter 6 chemistry in biology a chemical reaction is the process by which atoms or 64 the building blocks of life chapter 6 chemistry in biology carbon has four electrons in its outermost energy level
