Kinetic Theory AQA 2012 P1

  1. 1. Kinetic Theory There are three states of matter: Solid Liquid Gas vSolid Liquid Gas
  2. 2. Solidsv In solids, strong forces of attraction hold the particles together in fixed regular positions. The particles don’t have much energy so they can only vibrate about their fixed positions.
  3. 3. Liquids In liquids there are weaker forces ofattraction between the particles. Although the particles are close together, they can move past each other to form irregulararrangements. The particles in a liquid havemore energy than those in a solid thereforethey can move in random directions at low speeds.
  4. 4. gases In gases there are almost no forces of attraction between the particles. Theparticles have more energy than in solids and liquids. They can move in random directions at high speeds. Some info from: CGP GCSE Core Science The Revision Guide.
