>>12939386>what is matter?
matter is composed of "atoms"
we assume "atoms" to be....
the smallest divisible units of elements....
breaking down beyond this "atom" unit will result in losing that elements chemical properties.
so, matter is what we term "the elements" and are composed of "atoms" that will lose their unique chemical properties if broken down any further.
NB: all other mass, etc is classified as a particles under "particle-physics".
