states of matter
- they have a definite shape
- different solids have particular properties such as stretch, strength, or hardness
- an example of a solid is an empty gatorade bottle
- another example is a metal chair
- a pencil is a solid

- liquids do not have a definite shape
- they take shape of whatever container they are in

- Like liquids, gases can flow but, unlike solids or liquids, gases will not stay where they are put.
- oxygen is a gas

DEFINITION- plasma is an ionized gas, a gas into which sufficient energy is provided to free electrons from atoms or molecules and to allow both species, ions an electrons, to coexist
- most common form of matter
- makes up over 99% of the visible universe and perhaps most of that which is not visible
Bose Einstein Condensate
- is a state of matter of a dilute gas of bosons cooled to temperatures very close to absolute zero
