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

Forces between particles in a solid keep them from changing position?

The forces between particles in a solid that keep them from position is a inter molecular bond, That why it take a fair amount of heat to break the bonds of a solid.

What Forces keep particles in a liquid and solid together?

Solids do not flow. The particles in a solid cannot change places so a solid will keep its shape (unless it is broken).

Do forces between particles in a solid keep them from moving to a new place?

the objects property of having mass give it inertia which means an objects resistance to movement.

What happens to the particles in a solid when it dissolves?

The particles in the solid (solute) break apart and form links with the particles in the liquid (solvent). There are strong forces of attraction between the molecules and particles inside the solute. These forces keep the particles together and make the solute a solid because they attract the solute particles tightly together. There are also strong forces of attraction between the molecules and particles inside the solvent. These forces keep the particles together and make the solvent a liquid because they attract the solvent particles slightly together. There is also an attractive force between the solute and solvent particles. To break these forces and from a bond between the solute and solvent particles energy is needed. This energy is gained from heat (the process of dissolving is speeded up through heat.) In conclusion, the particles in a solute break apart of their attractive forces and form bonds with the solvent particles through the attraction between the solute and solvent particles and through the energy gained by heat.

Why can an ideal gas not be liquefied?

An ideal gas is not a real thing, just an idea. The definition of an ideal gas is one where there are no forces between the particles. If there are no forces, there is nothing to bring the particles together into a liquid. In a real gas of course there are forces of attraction which keep the particles together when they are moving sufficiently slowly.

When the attractive forces holding particles together are strong enough to hold them together as a group but not as a fixed position they form a what?

Liquid. The liquid state lies between the gaseous and the solid state. The cohesive (attractive) forces between the liquid particles are strong enough to keep them together but not to keep them in a fixed position.

Why does a solid keep its shape?

The energy the particles contain is not enough to break the intermolecular or interatomic forces holding the solid in its place. They can vibrate to a certain degree, but cannot move freely like a liquid or gas.

When forces are not balanced an object may keep moving forever true or false?

That's true. Plus ... even if the forces on an object are BALANCED, it can keep moving forever.

Why does a solid have an definite shape?

By definition - that's what makes it a solid.At the atomic or molecular level, the forces between particles (atoms or molecules) are strong enough to keep them in place.

When balanced forces act on an object what happens if the object is not moving?

The object will keep moving at a constant speed if the forces acting on an object is balanced as both forces are balanced

In plumbing what is a basketstrainer used for?

To keep solid particles out of the drainage system

When forces are not balanced can an object keep moving forever?

As long as the forces remain the same or do not change direction

When a solid is heated do the particles move?

Particles Are in constant motion, in a solid they vibrate in place. The only reason the solid and liquid states exist are because of intermolecular forces. These forces are what keep particles together without chemical bonds. When a solid is heated, the particles will vibrate more violently and eventually break apart and become liquid or gas once a high enough temperature is reached. This is because the IM forces are not enough to keep the molecules or atoms together once a certain temperature is reached. The atoms move too fast to stay together once the melting point is reached, causing them to flow, but once the boiling point is reached, atoms move so fast that they break away completely and diffuse freely. So yes the particles will move once a certain temperature is reached, but the particles were already moving in thee first place. Only at absolute zero temperature will the particles be still..at this point scientists have not been able to bring anything to absolute zero, probably because to observe something, you must blast energy, or light, at it. They can get extremely close, within a few or fractions of degrees, but never absolute zero.

How many forces need to be applied to a body in space to keep it moving with a constant velocity?

No force is required to keep a body moving with constant velocity.

What forces enable an object to be in motion?

If an object is moving, no force is required to keep it moving. Forces are required to CHANGE its motion, for example, to speed it up, or to slow it down.

What subatomic particles in an atom attract?

Protons and electrons but strong forces keep them apart

How is force is needed to keep objects moving?

No force is needed to keep an object moving, except to counteract friction forces that would slow the object down.

Do smaller particles of sediment get deposited first or do large particles of sediment?

Large particles generally get deposited first because of their mass. The effect of gravity on the larger particles requires a greater push by moving air, water, or ice to keep them moving.

Why gases does not have high density?

Gas particles (atoms or molecules) have enough kinetic energy to overcome any attractive forces (intermolecular attractions) that will keep them in solid or liquid phases. That KE keeps them moving randomly, bouncing off of each other, with a large space between them. This large space-- volume, makes the density less than the same substance in liquid or solid phases.

What forces keep the Earth moving?

No force makes the Earth move. It has enough momentum to continue moving through space.

Why solid that are tightly linked together in a definite shape OF Particles?

There are forces between the atoms, such that they can't get too close together - or too far apart - from one another. As a result, they keep their relative position to one another (more or less), and the solid remains its shape.

Why don't things keep moving forever?

Things would were it not for opposing forces such as friction.
