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.

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

The particles get faster and the particles will be turned into liquid particles instead of solid particles

When a solid is in a solid state of matter the particles are tight and compact. When the solid melts it turns into a liquid state of matter so the particles aren't as tight together and loosen a bit.

When a solid melts, it becomes a liquid that can flow.

adding energy to a solid increases the temperature of the solid. As the temperature increases, the particles of the solid move faster.

The particles of the solid water gain or absorb kinetic energy. This causes the ice to melt because the particles move faster and cause heat.

the particles in the solid vibrate so fast that they break free from their fixed positions

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

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.

The particles are farther apart from each other, and the pull on each atom loosens.

once the solid is hot enough it melts into a liquid.

"absorb" When ice melts the particles of water -absorb- energy.

In a solid, like ice, the particles are tightly packed. This is why ice doesn't move too much. When the ice melts, it's partcles spread farther apart, transfering into the state of a liquid- also known to most people as water. (:

A solid melts when heated. aaliquid becomes more fluid or evaporates

It will turn into a liquid.

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

Warm it enough and it melts.

There is a chemical and physical. physical :

The molecules of water from ice (solid water) are transformed in a liquid and this liquid is transformed in a gas (vapors).

It melts. Because it is a solid when it is heated up it melts.

The particles move more quickly and begin to move from place to place

when u melt ice the hot particles transfer heat to the cold particles (ice) and the hot particles lose kinetic energy and the cold particles gain kinetic energy till the bonds relax and reaches the same temp
