The particles in solids do not move fast enough to overcome the strong attraction between them. So, they vibrate in place. Particles of a liquid move fast enough to overcome some of the attraction between them. The particles are close together but can slide past one another. The particles in a gas move fast enough to overcome almost all of the attraction between them. The particles are far apart and move independently of one another.

The motion of particles in gasses, liquids, and solids are all different. Gas particles can move much more quickly than solids.


The particles(atoms or molecules solids don't move to much and the particles in liquids always move


Particles within are limited to vibrational motion, unlike the particles which make up liquids which can have vibrational & translational motion, and gaseous particles which have vibrational, translational and rotational motion.



No, they are not packed tightly together. The particles in solids are. In gas, they move in random motion and are the furthest apart, compared to solids and liquids. Hope this helps :)


No attractions in particles are not in liquid it's stronger in solids


solids are compact, liquids are a little more spread out, and gases are the most spaced. Solids have rarely any motion, liquids a little more, and gas the most. Forces are strongest in solids, then liquids, then gases.


the kinetic theory of matter says that all matter is made of particles that are in constant motion. Matter is made of constantly moving particles, which tells us how the matter in solids, liquids, and gases behaves.


Solids become liquids when the temperature reaches melting point, groups of particles start to brake away from each other. This is when the solid starts becoming a liquid. Liquids become solids on cooling, the particles move slower and become a solid.


Yes. Liquids are liquid because the particles are moving fast and bumping into each other so you get the sliding motion of liquid. Solids have the slowest particle movement of any form of matter. For the longest time it was believed that the particles in solids do not even move, however, scientists have found that the particles do move as they simply vibrate in place.




When a solid, liquid or gas is heated the particles in the substance speed up and gets less dense. The particles also spreads out.


In solids, the particles are packed closely together and only vibrate. In liquids, the particles are more loose, flow, and can move around more. In gases, the particles are free to move around.


As opposed to liquids, whose particles are packed loosely, and gases, whose particles are barely hanging together, solids' particles are packed very tightly. Other solids whose particles are packed more loosely and liquids/gasses cannot break through the particles of the tighter-packed particles.

they are both made of particles



because there particles are close together and then there is no space to compress the particles


Particles of gas have the largest space out of solids and liquids


In the liquid, the particles are not compact but in a solid, the particles are compact.


Solids - the particles are close together Liquids - In a non-uniform and non-static, close-packed manner. Gases - they float around the space they are in


The common denominator would be the kinetic energy of the particles making up the solids, liquids, and gases.


Particles can move or slide past one another in liquids. In solids, particles can barely move due to constricted space.


Matter is of three forms. In case of solids, the particles would vibrate and hence vibrational energy But in case of fluids, ie liquids and gases, the particles would have kinetic energy due to random motion.
