Chemical combination 3
The student should be able to:
- Explain the three states of matter
- define freezing point, boiling points, and melting points
- 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
