Generally, when substances are heated, their particles begin to move faster. In solids, molecules vibrate together; heat makes them vibrate harder, and when the particles get hot enough, they vibrate together hard enough to break away from the molecule structure -- this is called melting, like when ice melts into water.
In liquids, molecules tend to slide around each other; when they are heated, they start to bounce off of each other, and the liquid mass expands. If they bump off of each other hard enough, they too can break away from their molecule structure, and float about independently as a gas molecule -- that's called evaporation, like when you heat water and steam is produced.
Gas molecules tend to bounce off of each other; when they are heated, the gas mass expands because they bounce off of each other harder.
Solids ---heat---> Liquids ---more heat---> gases
Gases are made when you heat up solids or liquids. Liquids are made when you cool down gases or heat up solids. Solids are made when you cool down gases or solids. When you heat up solids they make liquids and when you heat up liquids it makes gases. When you heat up gases it makes plasma (plas-mu) but that is very very very very very very hard to make.
It changes the original state of the matter, ie from solids to liquids or liquids to gases and vice versa.
Five facts: 1. When liquids cool down, they become solids. 2. When gases cool down, they become liquids. 3. When solids heat up, they become liquids. 4. When liquids heat up, they become gases. 5. Some liquids will only freeze in temperatures that can never be recreated by humans.
Solids, by conduction. Fluids, by convection.
False. Solids retain heat better, but take longer to heat up than liquids/gases. That means they are poor heat conductors.
transfer heat by fluid motion
Because they conduct heat less efficiently than do liquids or solids.
Conduction is useful because it allows you to heat solids. FACT: Solids heat faster than liquids and gases.
It does occur in gases but not solids, because the molecules in a solid are not free to move and transfer heat by moving.
The particles of solids have almost negligible space between them therefore they conduct heat and energy faster than liquids and gases as their particles have some space between them.
not liquids or solids?
Heat can travel in 3 ways by conduction in solids, convection of fluids (liquids or gases), and radiation.
If you mean, to transfer heat by convection, that is only possible in liquids or gases. Conduction occurs in solids, liquids and gases.
Solids do conduct heat better than gases, although not necessarily better than liquids. Some solids are actually composite materials, because they can have a porous structure which contains gas within the solid, and this results in solids that do not conduct heat very well. But it is the gas component which has this insulating property.
Heat transfer by convection occurs in liquids and gases. It does not occur in solids.
With rare exceptions, if pressure is held constant, solids, liquids, and gases will expand as heat is added and contract when heat is extracted. A notable exception is water near its normal freezing point. If heat is added at the saturation point, a phase transition will occur - solids will melt or sublime and liquids will evaporate. When heat is removed at the saturation point a phase transition will occur - gases will condense (either to liquid or solid depending on the type of phase boundary) and liquids will freeze.
Conduction is the transfer of heat particles from a high concentration to a low concentration in solids, liquids and gases.
Nope, its a type of energy transfer. The states of matter are Gases,Solids and Liquids.
Because solids don't flow much.
it causes all to under go a phase change. solids change into liquids by melting, liquids turn into gas by evaporation and......well, i have no freakin idea how gas changes actually
Yes, liquids heat up faster than solids.
There is no specific heat trend on the periodic table because the gases on the periodic table are solids, liquids, and gases, and these all have different specific heats.
Liquids usually conduct heat better than solids because liquids can transport heat via convection.
It occurs in gases & liquids, never solids.
