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.

no but the particles in a solid vibrate

Particles in a solid vibrate in place.

The particles in a solid vibrate in place.

When solids are heated the particles in the solid vibrate faster. Usually solid vibrate on a fixed spot but it vibrates faster when heated.

No, the vibrations depend on how much energy the particles have. If a solid is heated from the left side, the particles on the left will vibrate more than the particles on the right. Solid particles vibrate as each individual particle, not as a group or around a fixed point.

A solid's particles already vibrate in relatively fixed positions. However, when the solid is cooled enough, the particles will likely vibrate even less.

The particles in a solid are closely locked in position and can only vibrate.

the particles in a solid are closely locked in position and can only vibrate

The particles are tightly packed so they vibrate.

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

The particles of a solid can only vibrate about their fixed positions while the particles of a liquid can vibrate, rotate and translate (move from 1 place to another) within the liquid.

When energy is transfered to something which conducts heat, the particles in the solid object start to vibrate. As more energy is transfered to the particles, it spreads across the solid objects particles. The hotter the solid, the more it's particles vibrate.

The solid state of matter is the phase in which particles vibrate in space. Because particles in a solid are so tightly packed together, they can vibrate but not move to any significant extent. However, in liquids and gases, the molecules are free to vibrate was well as move around.

They vibrate, but only ever so slightly. Remember that solid particles can only vibrate in a fixed position and cannot float about like fluids.

The force of attraction between particles in a solid is very strong hence, the particles vibrate on the spot.

In a solid, the particles are locked together, but they vibrate in place.

No, particles in a solid only vibrate, whereas particles in a liquid are free to move within the liquid.

They are close together and vibrate

The particles vibrate in a fixed position

They are locked together for which they vibrate

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

the particles of solid are closely locked to each other in position and can only vibrate. :) by americhims :)

All particles move solid particles vibrate gas moves fast.

The particles in a solid are fixed,so they vibrate only.Due to their rigidity they are not able break free the intermolecular force of attraction and remain at a fixed point and vibrate continuously.
