### Do particles in Mercury collide with one another?

All particles of all things are in constant motion. Particles in a liquid collide, but the rate is subdued by the viscosity of the liquid.

Collide

By the sun

### Are the particles in steam close together?

steam is a gas so the particles are far apart

### What will happen when the particles collide in the Hardon collider?

Since they collide at very high energies, it is expected that they will produce some new particles, that were not yet observed previously.

### Think of a metal spoon in a pot of hot water. How do the particles of the water affect the particles of the spoon?

Conduction is what transfers the heat in this process. The fast moving particles in the hot electric coil collide with the slow-moving particles in the cool pot. The transfer of the heat causes the pot's particles to move faster. Then the pot's particles collide with the water's particles, which in turn collide with the particles of the spoon. As the particles move faster, the metal spoon becomes hotter.

### Which has the most energy particles in steam particles in liquid water particles in ice or particles in freezing water?

The particles have most energy in particles in steam. In a gas. the particles move more freely, Therefore, there is more energy in the steam. :D LOL

### When do gas particles change direction?

When they collide with other particles or a surface (wall of a tank).

solids

Pressure.

### If the motion of 1 particle of a gas is unaffected by the motion of other particles of the gas unless the particles what?

Unless the particles collide
