2. Describe the movement of particles in a gas.

  • move around each other
  • none
  • move quickly in any direction
  • vibrate about in a fixed position

3. When a gas is heated, what will happen to the particles?

  • they will gain kinetic energy which will make them move faster. This means the particles will collide with the walls more frequently
  • The particles will expand and take up more space so they are harder to compress
  • the particles will gain energy and eventually escape from the container
  • they will move more slowly. This means the particles will collide with the walls less frequently

4. Describe the arrangement of particles in a solid.

  • far apart: regular pattern
  • close together: regular pattern
  • close together: random
  • far apart: random

5. Why do liquids flow and take up the shape of their container?

  • the particles are far apart and have space to move into
  • the particles can move around each other
  • the particles are close together and have no space to move into
  • the particles can move quickly in all directions
