These patterns create crystals.
Solids that are made up of crystals are called crystalline solids.
*E.g., Salt, sugar, diamond, quartz, snow, ruby
Crystalline Solids:
Amorphous Solids:
In amorphous solids, the particles are NOT arranged in a repeating pattern.
*E.g., Plastics, rubber, butter, wax, and glass.
Crystalline and Amorphous
Solids, liquids, and gases may be elements, compounds, or mixtures.
Air is a mixture of gases (e.g., Oxygen and Nitrogen).
Water is a compound you’ve seen as both a solid and a liquid.
Surface Tension
Surface tension is caused by the attraction of the molecules in the surface of a liquid.
Movement: The particles in a solid
can only vibrate.
Arrangement: The particles in a solid are very closely packed together.
Movement: The particles can collide with and move past each other.
Arrangement: The particles in a liquid are packed loosely together.
Arrangement: The particles in a gas are spread apart.
