Do molecules in a solid move?
They vibrate ever so slightly.
Once a compound reaches Absolute Zero: 0 K, strange things start to happen. -At the molecular level, they vibrate within a very small radii, fixed in a crystalline structure, and with an extremely high frequency, they just can move very far. -if an electric current passes through a thin metal wire, such as on a microchip, the phenomenon known as electromigration occurs, and some atoms of the metal are actually physically pushed by the electrons opposite to the flow of current.
Molecules in a solid move slower than the molecules in a liquid and a gas. Molecules in a gas move faster than the liquid and a solid.
The molecules in a solid move like a rapid vibration. They stay in place, but they are still in motion.
It is the solid. The molecules in solid dont move much but they do move, just a bit.
how does molecules in a solid, liquid and gas compare
In liquid molecules move faster but in solid the molecules would vibrate about its mean position
Solid molecules are rigid and has a shape. Liquid molecules are less rigid than solid and the molecules move. Gases have no shape and its molecules are free floating and move at rapid speeds against each other.
depends on what molecules you are talking about, for example; water molecules move to solid, cool surfaces.
in a liquid the molecules are spread out and can move around a lot and in a solid the molecules are together and can not move in a gas the moleules can move out more than a liquid
the molecules in a solid are closer together which makes it solid and the molecules in a liquid arent as close together which means they have more room to move around.
Molecules actually move faster in liquid because they have more space between them to move about. That's why liquid can flow, and a solid cannot. =)
No molecules of solids DO NOT move from place to place because in a solid, the molecules of that solid are so tightly packed together, that they can only vibrate in one place.
The molecules of a solid state are tightly packed together. Movement of molecules is restricted to vibrating in their equilibrium position.
They spread out and move around more than molecules in a solid would.
they move more freely then molecules in a solid, but not as freely as molecules in a gas.
melting. Yep, it sure is melting. But also, when a solid becomes a liquid, it basically is heat being applied to the solid, and causing the molecules of the solid to move around, and when the molecules move around, it is not called a solid anymore, but called a liquid, because the molecules are not compact. :D -Dain
molecules move faster in a state of gas and they move so fast that they broke the gravity force and attractions of each other. Molecules in a state of solid just viberate. so gas would be faster.
In a solid the molecules are tightly packed together all touching one another and vibrate; in a liquid the molecules are more loosely packed and more free to move around but they are still touching; in a gas the molecules are free to move where they please
Molecules vibrate in a solid but they do not move from one place to another. Although these vibrations are small yet they result in a change in the position of molecules. So, we can say that molecules change position in a solid.
Its easy,,, because the molecules of the solid is close together, while the molecules of the gas are separated from each other..... I hope you understand this -_- ^__^
a solid is a solid because the molecules that are in the object are closely compact with each other. they do not move but the do vibrate.
No, molecules or particles in a solid are tightly packed together so that they can not move they can only vibrate.
Fast. they move slow in a solid
In which material do molecules have a greater attractions for each other solid butter or liquid butter?
In solids, molecules have the greatest attractions for one another. That is why molecules in a solid barely move around or switch positions. In gases, the molecules move around quickly and freely, so their attractions are weak. Liquids are in between. So, to answer: solid.
Hot Cocoa, because in matter, molecules move fastest in gas, fast in water, and slow in solid. Cold Skate Blades move slower because they are solid and and molecules move slow in solid, so the answer is Hot Cocoa.
It depends on the type of solid. All molecules in solid form have what is called vibrational movement, meaning the move in fixed positions. In some solids the forces of attraction between the molecules are strong enough to keep the molecules in a relatively fixed position but allow some moment of molecules past one another. If the forces between molecules weaken enough to allow more fluid movement, then the solid becomes a liquid.
If it is meant that solid water, ice, since it is crystallized there is no translational degrees of freedom. in solid water, ice, there can be talked only about lattice vibrations of water molecules from their equilibrium positions. me:NO molecules move!!
Yes They Do...In A Solid Molecules Have No Energy And Are Blocked Together...In A Liquid They Have Some Energy So They Move Abit Free-er And In A Gas They Have Loads Of Energy So They Fly About Really Free. yes. molecules can move in any substance, solid, liquid, or gas.
Molecules in solid matter/material move through heat. Example: Through an experiment you ca determine how molecules of solid material move. Use the science tools: alcohol lamp, ball, and ring.(note: the ring should fit on the ring not too tight nor too loose) Insert the ball on the ring. Does it fit? Now heat the ball for about 1-2 minutes. Insert again the ball on the ring. What do you observe? Try this experiment and see… Read More
Iron is a solid at room temperature because its molecules are stationary, and are only vibrating. In a liquid the molecules can move about freely, and in a gas they can move even more.
when the water molecules are of a liquid, they are farther apart and able to move around the space of the liquid as apposed to a solid where the molecules are closely packed together and cannot move much. i hope that answers your question.
Matter's property depends on how it's molecules are interacting(if they move,or not).The four properties of matter are solid,liquid,gas,and plasma.A solid matter's molecules don't move apart,yet the other three do.Liquid molecules do move apart ,but not by much.Gas molecules will move apart as far as they can.Plasma takes it even farther,the electrons in it even move apart from the rest of the molecule.
In a solid, the molecules are very close and compact with very no space to move around. In a liquid the molecules have little space to move around, and in a gas, the molecules are very spaced out. The gas molecules move around a lot because they have so much space between and around them. Hope this helped..
they vibrate around fixed points
Gas...The molecules are less tightly packed together like in a solid and liquid so they're free to move. They seem more energized, they're faster.
Gas molecules are spread apart farther than solid molecules. They also have more energy, making them move faster
The molecules move faster
They are the three states of matter for all substances. A solid has molecules packed tightly together; a liquid has molecules that have some room to move; gases have molecules that can move freely. eg for water the solid state is ice, the liquid state water and the gas state water vapour (steam)
Molecules in the ice cream move slower, transforming it into a solid.
Playdough is a solid. The molecules move more freely and quickly in a liquid substance.
Yes. The molecules of ice move very little to not at all, thus making it a solid.
When you add kinetic energy to a solid the molecules won't move
Solid. The molecules are compacted together and vibrate at high speeds. Liquid. The molecules are still close together but are not fixed and can roll around each other. they spread to take the shape of the container. the molecules move at even higher speeds than solid. Gas. The molecules are far away from each other and move even faster than water Molecules. the spread out or shrink inward to meet the shape of the container.
All matter has 3 forms or states, depending on the amount of energy effecting the substance. The molecules in a solid have less kinetic energy than molecules in a liquid. The molecules can't move as far away from each other as the molecules in a liquid are able to move. Therefore, solid molecules are closer to each other than the molecules of the same substance in a liquid form.
Gases gas molecules are far apart gas molecules move in a rapid, random manner gas particles touch only when they rebound and collide gas is a lighter version of liquid gas particles move everywhere gases cannot be seen by the naked human eye most gases are evaporated liquids gases do not keep their volume Liquids many liquid molecules touch each other many liquid molecules would have one particle on the right but none on the… Read More
they move but there are very tightly packed together.
When a substance undergoes a phase change the molecules either order themselves or disperse themselves randomly. In a solid the molecules are unable to freely move in space. In liquid form they are able to move around in the space they occupy and in gas form they can move freely in any open area. In gas state the molecules will have more kinetic energy than liquid or solid, and liquid more than solid.
No in a solid the molecules are fixed in position while in a liquid they can move around - that is why a liquid is 'liquid'.
The molecules of a substance move closer to each other when the substance changes its state from solid to liquid.
When they get cold and solid the molecules move together and get tightly packed and move very slowly. When very hot they spread out (gas) and move very fast.
The bindings between the molecules get stronger and the molecules move closer to each other.
