Title: States of Matter


1
States of Matter
  • There are four states of matter
  • Solid
  • Liquid
  • Gas
  • Plasma

2
Classification of the stages of matter
  • Based upon particle arrangement (how atoms attach
    to each other)
  • Based upon energy of particles
  • Based upon distance between particles (how close
    the atoms are to one another)

3
Solids
  • Particles of solids are tightly packed together
    and vibrate about a fixed position.
  • Solids have definite shape and a definite volume.

4
Liquids
  • Particles of liquids are tightly packed, but are
    far enough apart to slide over one another.
  • Liquids have an indefinite shape and a definite
    volume.

5
Gases
  • Particles of gases are very far apart and move
    freely
  • Gases have an indefinite shape and an indefinite
    volume.

6
Plasma
  • Plasma is an ionized gas.
  • Plasma is a very good conductor of electricity
    and is affected by magnetic fields.
  • Plasma have an indefinite shape and an indefinite
    volume.
