Transcript of States of Matter

States of Matter Solid Liquid Gas Plasma Kinetic Theory of Matter The theory stating that all matter is made of particles in motion. Movement of Particles Particle Arrangement -Fixed volume and shape

-Close packed particles


-Fixed in one place -Fixed volume but does not have a fixed shape

-Take on shape of container

-Particles are close together

-Not fixed in one place -No fixed volume or shape

-Take on shape and volume of container

-Not close to other particles

-Move freely in any direction Plasmas are a lot like gases, but the atoms are different, because they are made up of free electrons and ions of an element such as neon (Ne). You don't find naturally occurring plasmas too often when you walk around. They aren't things that happen regularly on Earth. If you have ever heard of the Northern Lights or ball lightning, you might know that those are types of plasmas. It takes a very special environment to keep plasmas going. They are different and unique from the other states of matter.

How about when we heated them?
2. How did the liquid particles move regularly?
How about when we heated them?
3. How did the gas particles move regularly?
How about when we heated them?

"A day in the life of the water particle"

In Microsoft Word create a Table to make your comic strip.

You must include all six vocabulary words to the left in the proper context

You may create your whole comic strip on the computer or print your template and create it by hand. Your choice!
