# What happens to the particles in a solid as they are heated?

###### Wiki User

The particles in a solid start to move faster and faster as they are heated. Eventually they may move fast and freely enough to reach the liquid state, and if they continue to be heated, the particles could obtain enough energy to leave the liquid state and go into the gaseous state.

what happen to the particles of solid that is heated until it melts

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

The solid will melt because the particles are moving apart, therefore, you get a liquid.

The particles in a liguid are bonded (not as strongly as a solid which is why it flows.) when it is heated the particles vibrate and eventually the bonds break and the particles break away. This is evaporation.

if they are heated then they turn to a liquid, if that are a soled well they are hard like ice

When a solid is heated the particles vibrate more and they break free of the mold they are in. This makes the solid a liquid. if you continue to heat it, the vibrations will get stronger and the particles will start to evaporate. When the particles evaporate, then it would be a gas.

when a solid is heated the particles in it gain energy (heat energy) and vibrate more. The particles bump into each other and pass the energy on. The speed all depends on whether the solid is a conductor of heat or electricity.

When a particle is heated, it gains energy and starts to vibrate more quickly. When this happens to them, they go through a state change from solid to liquid and then to gas.

The particles in a solid are very tightly packed together and rigid. The particles in a liquid are less tightly packed together. When a solid like lead is heated, the particles spread out and can move more, making a liquid.

Well what happens to particles in a solid is they slowly vibrate and get further and further apart until they turn into a gas. I had exactly the same question for my homework Thank youNo. your saying that if you put say a pan on a stove it will suddenly turn into a gas?? don't think so pal!The real answer is the particles in a solid vibrate faster when heated this is why metal expands when heated, to accommodate for all of the moving particlesBut if you do heat it up enough, for certain materials, the particles will separate and turn into a gas, or in some cases turn into a liquid.

Particles move faster when heated. When cold, they move slower.

when the solid is heated, the water particles move faster, so the water changes from solid to liquid. more heating makes the particles move even faster and farther apart, so the liquid water changes to a gas. The particles of a gas are much farther apart than the particles of a solid or a liquid. When a solid is heated, energy is supplied to the particles, which makes the particles vibrate faster. They will vibrate faster and faster until they are vibrating fast enough to break free and move around randomly. This is melting and a liquid is formed.

When a solid is heated the energy rises then after that the solid becomes less dense and the solid eventually expands.

They vibrate. And if heated enough, most connections will be broken and the object will be melted.

The particles in a solid are very tightly packed together and rigid, that's why it doesn't do much moving about. The particles in a liquid are less tightly packed together so they can move around more. When a meltable solid is heated, the particles in that solid spread out and can move more, thus, you have a liquid. I hope that answers your question... :P

When a solid is heated at it's melting point it turns into a liquid

The particles "Move" faster. i.e. when you melt butter, the "butter particles" which were originally moving slowly, have been sped up which causes it to lose its form and liquidate.

The speed of the gas particles will increase as they are heated. That is why the pressure in a container increases. The particles are hitting the walls of the container with more force as they are heated.

When a solid is heated its particles melts and change into liquid
