States of Matter
Transcript of States of Matter
How many states of Matter are there?
What exactly is matter?
What is a Solid?
Solid is one of the states of matter characterized by structural rigidity and resistance changes of shape or volume.
Examples of Solids
What is a Liquid?
A liquid is defined as a form of matter with a definite volume but no fixed shape. It is made up of tiny vibrating particles of matter, such as atoms and molecules.
Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. If you are new to the idea of mass, it is the amount of stuff in an object.
In a solid, the particles of matter are tightly packed together.
Solids have a definite,
Solids molecules have the least amount of energy of all 3 states of matter.
Solids cannot be compressed.
In a liquid, particles of matter are loosely packed and are free to move past one another
Liquids are not compressible but do have a definite volume
Liquid's molecules have less energy to move around than gas molecules do but more energy than solids.
Characteristics of a Solid
A liquid is a sample of matter that conforms to the shape of a container in which it is held, and which acquires a defined surface in the presence of gravity
Characteristics of a Liquid
What is a Gas?
an air like fluid substance
which expands freely to
fill any space available
irrespective of its quantity.
Characteristics of Gases
The particles of matter are far apart and are uniformly distributed throughout the container
Gas have indefinite shape and assume the shape of their container.
Gases cannot be compressed and have an indefinite volume.
Gas's molecules have the most energy of all of the three states of matter.
Examples of Liquids
