Even many things that you cannot see, smell, or touch are matter. Describing Matter Matter is anything that takes up space and has mass. The amount of matter in an object is its mass. The more mass an object has, the heavier it is. Living and nonliving things are made of matter, including our clothing, the food we eat, and even the air that we breathe. Air is matter that you can’t see, yet it still takes up space. You can observe this as you blow up a balloon; the air takes up space making the balloon bigger. HELIUM What is Matter?
