# Are the particles in a solid moving or still?

###### Wiki User

Technically, all particles in a Solid, Liquid, or Gas are moving. But a gas moves the fastest, liquid fast, but not as fast as gas, and solid moves the slowest.

yes. gas has the fastest moving particles and a solid has the slowest moving particles and particles in a liquid are moving faster than solid particles but not as fast as gas particles.

If you are asking when particles are "able to move freely" that would be a liquid. If you simply ask about "moving" then that would be a solid, since in a solid the particles are still movings.

the particles in a solid are arranged tightly and not moving the particles in gas are moving fast and sepparted

Ice is the form of water that has particles moving the slowest. This is because the water is solid and the particles are tightly compacted.

no it does not but the particles move slower then it would if it is a liquid, or a gas.

It is a gas when moving and a solid when still.

Solid matter in reality is in motion, the difference between a solid and a liquid is the the solids particles are slower moving and packed tighter together.

a wavelength can be add to a sound particle that couses a high vibration.particles are always moving and this means no matter if it's a solid, liquid, or gas, it will always have particles moving. Particles in a soild only vibrate because they have less kinetic energy.

The solid will melt because the particles are moving apart, therefore, you get a liquid.

Particles inside a solid are packed tightly into neat rows, those that are in a gas are floating around an moving randomly and in a liquid they are not as tightly packed and aren't in rows

It depends on what medium it is in. If it is in a solid medium, the particles will be closely together, or vibrating. If it is in a liquid, the particles will be spreaded out and moving slowly. If it is in a gas, the particles will be in moving rapidly.

It depends if it's a solid, liquid, gas, or plasma. Solid particles will stay still and vibrate.

In a solid, particles are still constantly moving (Look up Kinetic Theory for more information) but are locked into a specific structure. So instead of atoms or molecules moving around and bumping into each other, they vibrate while remaining in the same area. (Electrons, protons and neutrons [sub-particles] can still move around in the atom, but again, the atoms are locked into a structure specific to that substance.

the absence of particles moving. the particles are compacted together on a solid than on a liquid.

In solid state particles are closest and only able to vibrate, not moving around

The particles are moving away from one another during melting.

In a solid, particles are very close together. They are always moving, but in a solid, they merely vibrate because space is so limited. The particles are tightly packed because there is a strong attraction between them. In a liquid, particles are further apart but still interact with each other. These particles move more freely than solids, but not as freely as a gas. In a gas, particles are the furthest apart. They still interact with each other, but interactions are very weak because particles are excited and are moving quickly. Particles can be imagined as whizzing past other particles at a high speed, barely acknowledging the other's presence.

The movement of particles in a hard stick of butter are solid. Their not moving. While the movement of particles in a melted sick of butter are liquid. They are moving.

Particles in a solid are always moving . They vibrate rapidly about their fixed positions . Their vibration speed depends on the temperature of the solid . The higher the temperature , the faster is the vibration ( movement ) .

Particles of a liquid are close together but still moving.

A mug is a solid, so the molecules that make up a mug will be rigid and essentially not moving. For a glass of cold water, since it is a liquid, will have molecules that flow by each other but still keeps a shape. in the end, the molecules of water are moving faster.

Slow moving particles causes an object to stay solid and unable to move. Fast moving particles cause an object to be a liquid or a gas (depending on the amount of heat on the object). If you add heat or freeze the object the particles will change movement. The particles are what makes the object solid/gas/liquid/plasma.

Yes they can vibrate because they can't move freely.yes, particles in a solid vibrate in place so fast they look like they aren't moving.
