Since we cannot push the particles any closer, the particles must already be as close as they can get Particles must be as close as they can get. We cannot push them any closer SPACING OF PARTICLES So the particles Can be compressed We could squish it and make it smaller Cannot be compressed Water in the syringe could not push it down Cannot be compressed Volume stays the same Observation- compression Particles move to new spots to take the collection takes the shape of the container. Particles must be free to move to a new location . They can move to new spot in new shape. Particles must stay in fixed positions (same place or locked in place) Cannot move to a new spot FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT So the particles Takes shape of container Ex. Balloons gas takes shape of balloon Takes shape of container Ex. Water in fish bowl Round or head-shaped Can put hand through Keep their shape Cannot put hand through Ex. Choc. bunny, ice sculptures, popsicles, fish observation Gas Liquid Solid
