Chapter 1: Kinetic Particle Theory

This is just a demo map that you can delete right away, if you feel like it...

Matter

Solid

Fixed shape and volume.

Particles, Closely packed and orderly., Strong attractive forces between each other., Low kinetic energy between each other., Vibrate & rotate about fixed positions

Uncompressed.

Liquid

Particles:, Disorderly, Strong attractive forces, Low KE., Slide over each other.

No fixed shape.

Fixed volume.

Uncompressed.

Gas

No fixed shape and volume.

Compress-able.

Particles, Disorderly and far apart., Weak attractive force., High KE., Move about at great speeds.

Changes of State

Melting

From solid to liquid.

High temp, attractive forces bet. particles broken, no longer in fixed positions, now a liquid.

Freezing

Liquid to solid.

Particles begin to lose kinetic energy, move more slowly, start to settle into fixed positions, now a liquid.

Boiling

Liquid to gas

Overcame the attractive forces holding them together, spread far apart and now a gas.

Evaporation

Some particles have enough energy to escape as a gas from the surface of the liquid.

Condensation

When a gas is cooled sufficiently, it changes into a liquid.

Sublimation

Solid directly change into a gas without going through the liquid state.

Diffusion

Moves from region of higher concentration to lower concentration.

Rate of diffusion depends on the molecular mass.
