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

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

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

  • the particles will gain energy and eventually escape from the container
  • 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
  • they will move more slowly. This means the particles will collide with the walls less frequently

3. What process is this when a liquid changes to a gas?

  • freezing
  • condensing
  • boiling
  • melting

4. What is meant by the term 'pressure'?

  • the amount of energy needed to move a material
  • the amount of energy needed to heat a material
  • a force exerted over an area.
  • the amount of space which a substance occupies

5. Why can gases be compressed or squashed?

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