Matter:States, Properties + Changes
By Krish.T 5F2
Matter: How can we explain it? What to do with it?
There are 3 basic states of matter: solids, liquids and solids. You can weigh matter by weight, capacity or volume. Matter has many different properties, which we shall talk about later. Matter can be any shape, size or colour matter is anything 3-D you can think of. Airplanes, paper, air. Even the smallest of bugs are matter. You can measure matter in density and mass.

Physical and chemical changes in matter
Properties Of Matter
A solid cannot 'flow' because its particles cannot move/slide against each other. Liquids take the space of the container it occupies. Liquids can flow easily since the particles move against each other. Gases takes up the shape and size of the container it is in. Gases can flow because the particles have so much space between each other.
