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.

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

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, they do that is why we smell farts so fast

How much pressure a gas exerts depends on the number of gas particles in a given space and how fast they are moving. The more gas particles there are and the faster they are moving, the greater the pressure they create.

exerting lots of kinetic energy into gas particles speeds up the collision theory

Temperature is the measure of how fast particles are moving in an object.

A plasma has fast moving particles. Remember also, that the velocity of a particle is a token for the temperature.

Yes, light bulbs have the fastest moving particles.

hot water has fast moving particles, and cold water has slow moving particles

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.

Because hot gas particles have greater kinetic energy than cold gas particles

I think you mean, how do particles move in gas. But we all make mistakes. A most thought provoking question sir. The movement of particles in gas is the exact opposite to the movement of particles in a solid. When particles are in a solid state they are very slow, and clumped together. When particles take the gas form, they are completely spread out, have many fluctuations, moving fast. Excited particles if you like.

becausse the particles in gas are far apart.

Yes, there is an attractive force between gas molecules, but the molecules are moving too fast for these forces to have a significant effect.

- How fast the particles are moving - The number of particles in a substance VJ

Alpha particles ARE and fast moving helium nucleus.

Gas particles are fast because they have a higher amount of kinetic energy than those found in the liquid or solid state.

The extra Kinetic energy (heat) that has the particles moving so fast that they overcome attractions is being removed. The intermolecular attractions cause the gas particles to 'clump' together into larger and larger droplets until they are large enough to settle out as liquid. The particles (atoms or molecules) do not change, just their internal energy wich kept them moving so forcefully that they were separated into individual particles in the gas form.

All atoms have fast moving electrons. The warmer it is the faster the electrons is moving. But at -273,15 Celsius, no movement can exist.

Gas particles move very fast because the particles are separated and have enough space to move around.

Air particles: Nitrogen, Oxygen, Carbon dioxide, etc...

- How fast the particles are moving - The number of particles in a substance

Gas particles, like the particles in all states of matter (solid, liquid, gas) are always moving apart and colloding with other particles. Gas particles have more space in between and tend to move faster than the particles in a solid or liquid state. Temperature only affects how fast a particle moves, therefore warm air makes gas particles move faster and cold air makes gas particles move slower.
