What is matter?

Matter is anything that has a mass and takes up space (volume).

-Solids have a definite shape & a definite volume-In a solid, the particles are packed closely together with very slow movement ocurring-Solids have the lowest amount of thermal energy

-Gases have no definite shape & no definite volume-In a gas, the particles widely spread apart filling all available space while moving fast-Solid have the highest amount of thermal energy

This picture shows what the particles look like in a solid, liquid, and gas.
