definite volume and a definite shape

A solid is a state of matter that has a

viscosity

The resistance of a liquid to flowing is its

free to move in a container but remain in close contact with one another

Particles of a liquid are

gas

In which state of matter do the particles spread apart and fill all the spae available to them

a solid turns directly into a gas

During the process of sublimation

surface tension

The surface of water can act like a sort of skin due to a property of liquids called

melting point

The freezing point of water is the same as its

a liquid becoming a gas

What is vaporization

vaporization, then condensation

An uncovered pot of soup is simmering on a stove, and there are water droplets on the wall above the back of the stove. What sequence can you infer has occured

the pressure of the air above the substance

The boiling point of a substance is affected by

sublimation

In cold climates, the amount of snow on the ground may decrease even if the temperature stays below zero degrees Celsius. The process that best explains this event is.

a fluid is

thermal

when a substance cools, it loses_____ energy to its surroundings

condensation

occurs when particles in a gas lose enough thermal energy to form a liquid

boiling

occurs when a liquid changes to a gas below its surface as well as at the surface

thermal

gas

Sublimation is the change of a solid directly into

crystalline

solids that have particles arranged in a regular, repeating pattern are know as
