What are the tiny particles called that make up matter?
The Particle Model of Matter is a scientific description of the tiny particles that make up all things. The key elements in this model are: All substances are made of tiny particles too small to be seen The particles are always in motion The particles have spaces between them From what I have learned it tells you that all particles have spaces between them,
What is a basic property of the tiny particles that make up matter. electric charges can be positive or negative?
He asked the question: If you break a piece of matter in half, and then break it in half again, how many breaks will you have to make before you can break it no further? Democritus thought that at some point one would get to a smallest possible bit of matter. He called these basic matter particles, atoms. Atom in Greek means "indivisible".
The particle theory of matter states: All matter is made of tiny particles called atoms Particles are moving all the time, even if you can't see it Particles attract each other The more energy a particle has, the faster it moves and the further it spreads apart All particles have space between them.
