Physics P1 1.3 States of matter.

HideShow resource information
What are the properties used to describe each state of matter?
Flow, shape, volume and density.
1 of 9
What is the arrangement of particles in a solid?
The particles in a solid are held next to each other, vibrating in their fixed positions, so they have a fixed shape.
2 of 9
What is the arrangement of particles in a liquid?
The particles in a liquid move about at random and are in contact with each other but can move about at random, so a liquid doesn't have a fixed shape and can flow.
3 of 9
What is the arrangement of particles in a gas?
The particles in a gas move about randomly, are much faster and are much farther apart than particles in a solid or liquid. A gas doesn't have a fixed shape and can flow and the density of a gas is much less than that of a solid or liquid.
4 of 9
What are the three states of matter?
Solid, liquid and gas.
5 of 9
How can we make a substance change between these states?
By heating or cooling.
6 of 9
How is the arrangement of the particles in a liquid different from that in a solid?
The particles in a liquid are in contact with each other but are not held in fixed positions like those in a solid.
7 of 9
How is the arrangement of the particles in a gas different from that in a liquid?
The particles in a gas are ,such farther apart and move around much faster than those in a liquid.
