States of Matter
Transcript of States of Matter
By: Miriam Rodriguez
*Everything around us is made up of matter.
*We are made of matter, juice is made of matter, walls are made of matter, steam is made of matter
*Matter comes in 3 ways & can change its form.
Liquids have no shape.
When poured into a container it will take the containers shape.
All liquids can be poured.
Some liquids are thick and some are thin.
Particles in a liquid are tight but can move around.
Stay in shape unless you do something to change them.
Solids can be hard or soft.
Particles are tightly packed.
Solids vibrate but stay in place.
Not easy compressible.
Particles move freely past each other.
Space between makes compressible.
Assumes shape and volume of container.
Most gases are invisible.

New State of Matter found in a Chicken's Eye
Disorder Hyperuniformity : Arrangement of particles allowing to be both crystal and liquid.
May eventually include optics to transmit light with flexibility of a liquid and efficiency of crystal.
Researchers where studying minute light sensitive cells.
Inspired engineers to create detectors sensitive or resistant to certain light wavelengths.
