A property that defines matter and how it interacts with other substances in the world.
The phase change that occurs when vapor or gas cools and changes to liquid. Heat must be removed from the substance.
Substances that can't be separated into simpler substances and still act like the substance.
Phase/state of matter where molecules move very fast, bounce off of each other. Indefinite shape and volume. Occurs after enough heat is added to a liquid.
Phase/state of matter where molecules slide past each other and are not bonded to each other. Indefinite shape and definite volume. Occurs after enough heat is added to a solid to break the bonds. Takes the shape of the container.
The smallest part of a substance formed by chemical bonding. Water is and example of a molecule.
The part of an object that can be experienced by using one of the 5 human senses (hear, see, smell, taste or feel)
Phase/state of matter that has more energy than a gas. Plasma is different from a gas because it is made up of groups of positively (nucleus) and negatively charged particles (electrons) instead of atoms.
One state, or phase, of matter that is hard to compress and holds it's shape and has a definite volume. The atoms/molecules are bonded together in a set format where they vibrate in place.
Phase change from Gas to Liquid. Water on the bathroom mirror or a ice water glass is an example. Gas loses energy.
Phase change that occurs when a liquid atoms or molecules gain enough energy to change to gas.
At super low temperatures (near absolute zero) atoms become super unexcited and super cold and clump together forming a super atom!
