The 3 States



Phase Changes

These science teachers made up a song to help explain the movement, arrangement, and motion of particles in the different states of matter.

Solid: When particles are in a solid state, they are closely packed together. They do not have a lot of room to move. They usualy just have enough room to vibrate. They have a fixed shape and volume.Liquid: In a liquid, particles are less closely packed. They are able to move a bit more freely, but not much. They do not have a fixed shape but have a fixed volume.Gas: If particles are in the gas state, they can wildly move in the space they are in. They usualy bounce off the walls of the container they are in. They do not have a fixed shape or volume.

In order for the states of matter to change, they have to change through phase changes. The phases changes are melting, freezing, boiling, condensation, sublimation, and deposition. Matter goes through phases when heatedor cooled. They require an energy change becauseof the making of Intermoleculas Forces (IMF) betweenmolecules.To the left, there is a chart that helps explain what each phase change means.

Opening Paragraph

The states of matter consist of 3 major states : solid, liquid, gas. These states have different movements within the particles. Whether it is slow movment or fast movment... the particles will always be moving. The states go through phases changes. The changes will allow each state to transition to another. They might freeze, melt, boil, evaporate etc.
