Transcript of Particle Theory of Matter

For: Ms. Torrance & Ms. Manoukas
By: Kelly Lee The Particle Theory of Matter What is the Particle Theory of Matter? All About the Particle Theory of Matter The Six Key Points of the Particle Theory of Matter 1. All Matter is made up of particles.
2. All particles of one substance are identical.
3. The particles of matter are in constant motion.
4. Temperature affects the speed at which particles move.
5. Particles have forces of attraction between them.
6. There are spaces between particles. Matters Solids: have particles that are close together and barely move. For example, paper, eraser, or a pen.

Liquids: have particles that have more space between them compared to a solid and the particles can pass through each other. Juice, coffee, and milk are all liquids.

Gases: have particles that have the most space and can move in all directions. For example, helium or oxygen. Pure Substances & Mixtures: Pure Substances: A substance made up of only one thing. Salt, sugar and distilled water are all examples of pure substances.

Mixtures: A mixture is a substance made up of more than two things. For example, tea, pop and chocolate milk are mixtures. All matters are made up of small particles. The particles are always in constant motion. Each particle has a different amount of space between them. Solids have a closer force so the particles are closer together, liquids have weaker forces so it is farther apart, and gases have very weak forces which make the particles far apart. The particles in a matter can change themselves to different matters. Changes in Matter
