SOLID
In solids the particles attract one and other. There are attractive forces between the particles which hold the close together. The particles have little freedom of movement and can only vibrate about a fixed position.
1 of 5
LIQUID
the particles are still close together but the move around in a random way and off and Collide one another. The forces of attraction between the particles in a liquid are weaker than those in a solid
2 of 5
GAS
particles are relatively far apart they are free to move anywhere within the container which they are held randomly at very high velocity is much more rapidly than those in a liquid collide with each other but less often than in a liquid
3 of 5
EXPANSION
If a solid is heated the particles vibrate faster as the gain energy this makes them ‘push’ their neighbouring particles further away from themselves this causes increase in the volume of the solid , and expands
4 of 5
DIFFUSION
The spreading out of a gas is called diffusion and it takes place in haphazard and random way. All gases diffused to finger space available
