5-PS1-4. Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.

MS-PS1-1. Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules
and extended structures.

And the Utah SEEd 6.2 Density describes how closely matter is packed together. Substances with a higher density have more matter in a given space than substances with a lower density. Changes in heat energy can alter the density of a material.
