In solids there are...
Strong forces of attraction between particles (the particles don't move from their positions)
1 of 9
In liquid there is...
Some force of attraction between particles (move past eachother but tend to stick together)
2 of 9
In gases the particles...
Are free to move (travel in straight lines and only interact when they collide)
3 of 9
The hotter the solid, liquid or gas becomes...
The more it moves/vibrates.
4 of 9
If you heat the solid eventually the solid will ___ and become ___.
Melt, liquid.
5 of 9
If you hear the liquid, eventually it will ___ and become ___.
Boil, gas.
6 of 9
Explain evaporation...
Fast moving particles at the surface will overcome the forces of attraction from the other particles and escape.
7 of 9
What is volatility?
How easily a liquid evaporates.
8 of 9
How do you smell stuff?
The EVAPORATED PARTICLES drift in the AIR, the SMELL RECEPTORS in your nose pick up the smell.
