States Of Matter PowerpointPresentation Transcript
States Of Matter!
Matter is anything that takes up space and weight! The states of matter include; solid,liquid, gas, plasma and Bose-Einstein Condensates. All states of matter are made up of atoms. An atom is like a building block. It makes up everything you see! Each state of matter has a different patterns of atoms. The different patterns of atoms are what make the states of matter so much different than each other. What is Matter?
Solids are usually hard because of their atomic structure.
Solids have tightly packed molecules. The closer the molecules, the harder the solid.
Solids always hold their own shape.
What is a liquid?
Liquid is the middle man of the states of matter, it's molecules aren't as tightly packed as solids, but not as spread out as gas and have no particular pattern.
Liquid always takes the shape of it's container from the bottom up.
What is a Gas?
Gases are random groups of atoms that are really spread out.
Gases are full of energy.
Gases can fill any container regardless of size or shape.
What in the World is Plasma?
Plasma isn't found very often.
Plasma's are a lot like gases but plasmas are made up of free electrons and ions of the element.
Plasmas are mostly found in the atmosphere.
