Kinetic Theory

HideShow resource information
Solids
Strong forces of attraction hold the particles together in a fixed, regular pattern.
1 of 6
Liquids
There are weaker forces of attraction between particles. They are close together but can still move past each other to form arrangements.
2 of 6
Gases
There are almost no forces of attraction between the particles. The particles have more energy.
3 of 6
Solids
The particles don't have much energy, so they can only vibrate about their fixed positions.
4 of 6
Liquids
They have more energy than the particles in a solid. They move in random directions at slow speeds.
5 of 6
Gases
They are free to move and travel in random directions are high speeds.
