Do gas particles ever touch each other?

No, gas particles can touch each other when they collide.

What happens to particles of matter when a liquid changes to a gas?

well, in a gas, there is pressure and temperature. the particles move farther apartThe move faster and get further apart from each other.

Why can the particles of gas change and the particles of solids not?

Particles of a solid are attached to each other, by chemical bonds. Particles of a gas are not.

Particles separate completely from each other in a?


What happens to particles when it turns to gas?

States of matter are determined by the amount of Kinetic Energy they have. When a gas becomes a liquid, it loses energy, and the particles slow down enough to affect each other. This is why liquids have a volume.

What particles move independently of each other?

Gas particles move very fast because the particles are separated and have enough space to move around.

A state of matter where the particles do not touch each other?


What particles move or slide past each other?

Particles in a liquid can slide past each other but are still packed together.

In what particles are far away from each other and move quickly?


Why does a gas have no definite?

Because its particles have very very light bonding with each other and there particles are free in the air.................

Explain why the volume of a gas can change?

because the particles are away from each other so, the particles are spreading in an object

What happens to an ideal gas in a closed container when temperature rises?

In a container of constant volume, when the gas is heated, thermal energy is converted to kinetic energy. This increase in kinetic energy causes the gas particles to accelerate. This acceleration of particles causes the particles to crash into each other, increasing pressure. Because it is a closed container, the number of particles and the volume the particles take up remain the same.
