Chemical combination III



Chemical combination 3

Performance Objectives

The student should be able to:

  1. Explain the three states of matter
  2. define freezing point, boiling points, and melting points
  3. state the kinetic theory of gases


States of matter

The three states of matter are the three distinct physical forms that matter can take in most environments: solid, liquid, and gas. In extreme environments, other states may be present, such as plasma, Bose-Einstein condensates, and neutron stars. Further states, such as quark-gluon plasmas, are also believed to be possible. Much of the atomic matter of the universe is hot plasma in the form of rarefied interstellar medium and dense stars.


A solid’s particles are packed closely together. The forces between.... View More
