151) Corrosive

Corrosive is substances and preparations that may on contact destroy living
tissues.
152) Density
The density of a material is defined as the mass of one cubic meter of material
DENSITY = MASS/VOLUME
153) Specific Gravity
We can therefore say that any liquid that will not dissolve (not miscible) in water,
with a specific gravity higher than 1, will sink, whilst those with a specific
gravity lower than 1 will float on top. For example:
1m3 of water (1000 liters) weights 1000kg
1m3 of aviation gasoline (1000 liters) weight 720 kgs
154) Heat
Heat is a form of energy. Heat can be produced by chemical means, e.g., by
burning aviation fuel or by mechanical means, by fiction. Passing electric current
through a resistor also produces heat as in an electric fire.
155) Element
Substances that consist of only one type of atom are known as elements. EX.
CARBON
156) Molecules
If an element consists of more than one of the same type of atom, chemically
bound together, it is known as a molecule. EX. OXYGEN, The term molecule can
also be used to describe a substance that is made up of more than one type of
atom, water is example.
157) Compound
A mixture is a term used to describe a substance that is made up of more than
one type of molecule. EX. WATER
158) Combustion
Combustion is a chemical process. For it to occur, oxygen, usually from the air,
must combine with a fuel. A fuel is any substance that will burn and may be in
any one of the three states, solid, liquid or gas. EX. SMOLDING OR FLAMING
