Synthetic materials are formed when humans deliberately mix substances together for the express purpose of creating new materials with desirable properties. Most synthetic materials are the result of chemical reactions during which the atomic structures of the original substances are rearranged to form the new material. Common examples of synthetic materials are plastics and fabrics such as nylon.
To better understand synthetic materials…
LET’S BREAK IT DOWN!
Natural resources are useful raw materials that we get from the Earth. They occur naturally, which means that humans did not make them using a mixture or chemical reaction. Humans use natural resources to form new substances that will be beneficial to us.
