Chemistry - States of Matter

HideShow resource information
  • There are three states of matter:- solid, liquids and gas
  • All matter is made up of tiny particles
  • The particles of each state are arranged dirrently and also have different moving patterns
  • Solids, liquids and gases can be changed into one another by changing the amount of energy that the particles have

Solids - close and touching one another in a regular, repeating pattern. The particles vibrate about a fixed position but do not move apart. The forces between the particles is much stronger than gas and still stronger than a liquid

Liquid - close together and touching one another but in an irregular pattern. The movement is very free as particles move…
