STATES OF MATTER
- The state of matter in which materials have a definite shape and definite volume.
- Changing the container does not change the shape or volume of a solid.
- Most solid atoms are packed closely together.
- Almost all solids have some type of orderly arrangement of particles at the atomic level.
- Copper Wire
- The state of matter in which material has a definite volume but not a definite shape.
- A liquid always has the same shape as its container.
- Liquid can be poured into and take the shape of different containers.
- Liquid atoms are close together but their arrangement is more random than the arrangement of atoms in a solid.
- The state of matter in which a material has neither a definite shape nor a definite volume.
- A gas takes the shape and volume of its container.
- Gas atoms are not arranged in a regular pattern
- There is more space between gas atoms than there is in solid and liquid atoms
- A state of matter in which atoms have been stripped of their electrons.
- Plasma only exists at extremely high temperatures.
- Ninety-nine percent of all matter observed in the universe exists in this state.
- You can think of plasma as a gas containing two kinds of particles- nuclei and electrons.
- A state of matter that forms below a critical temperature in which all bosons in the matter fall into the same quantum state.
- When you hear the word condensate think about condensation and the way gas molecules come together and condense and to a liquid.
- Bose-Einstein occurs at extremely low temperatures.
- It also has a low energy level.
- Cold liquid helium
