No. Changes of state are physical changes in science. According to the law of conservation of mass, mass is neither created nor destroyed during physical or chemical changes (because atoms are not lost or gained.) Therefore, the solid form of one substance does not have more mass than the same substance in liquid or gas form.

What are the traits of a gas?

The traits of gas are no definite volume, shape and mass. Gases are also easy to compress and can occupy far more spaces than solids and liquids from which they form.

Hows the energy differs between a solid liquid and gas?

In three equal masses of the same pure substance, the solid, the liquid and the gas would all have the same amount of total energy. The solid will have less kinetic but more potential, the gas will have more kinetic but lesl potential energy.

Which physical state of nitrogen has the highest entropy?

The gas phase. That is true of any substance. Gases, because they are free to move about the entire volume of any container have much more entropy than either liquid or solids (and liquids have more than solids). The more ways the atoms are free to move around, the more entropy they have.

Why would SO2 go down in solubility when temperature increases?

Gases in general are less soluble in liquids as the temperature increases (unlike solids, for which the opposite is true). This makes sense if you think about it: increased temperature means increased molecular motion, so a gas molecule is more likely to get kicked out of the solution and escape.

Can you list 2 properties of a liquid?

A liquid has a definite volume but no definite shape. If you pour 2 ounces of water into a container, it will still be 2 ounces, but the shape will change to fill the container. Solids have definite volume and shape, and gases have neither definite volume nor definite shape.

Why are solids USUALLY more dense liquids and gases?

Solids are usually more dense because solids have a smaller volume than liquids or gases, so the same amount of mass is in a smaller volume, making the density greater.

What makes up solids liquids and gases?

Molecules - They are more tightly packed in solids than liquids and gases

What happens to solid liquids and gases when they are heated?

Solids ---heat---> Liquids ---more heat---> gases

Sound travels slower through gases than through liquids and solids because the molecules in gases are?

farther apart, resulting in fewer collisions between molecules. This allows sound waves to move with less resistance and at a slower pace compared to the more densely packed molecules in liquids and solids.

Why is it easier to find solids and liquids than gases?

Humans are more use to engaging and thinking about solids than liquids or gases. They are easier to find because they are what we are looking for.

Is molecule movement greater in liquids or gases?

molecules move more in gasses gasses>liquids>solids

How the motion of particles differ in gases liquids and solids.?

The motion of particles in gasses, liquids, and solids are all different. Gas particles can move much more quickly than solids.

How does these three terms density rigidity and fluidity apply to particles in the solid gas and liquid phase?

Solids and liquids are denser than gases. That is has more tightly packed molecules. Solids are more rigid than liquids and gases. That is they retain their shape when force is applied(with exceptions) When too much force is applied they break rather than changing shape Liquids and gases are more fluid than solids.

Do solids liquids and gases have a definite volume?

Solids have a set volume. Liquids have a set volume. Gases do not have a set volume. Why? Solids are solids. They don't move. They're in a 'frozen state' as is. Liquids 'mold' to the shape of their container and they stay there. Gases are free to go anywhere. Always moving and 'flying.'

Why solids do not mix well but gases and liquids mix easily in most cases?

Solids have tightly packed atoms so there is no space for the atoms to mingle. But in liquids/ gases, the atoms are more spread out and more free to move hence allowing the atoms to mingle.

Which has more elasticity solid or liquid?

Solids typically have more elasticity than liquids. This is because solids have a more ordered arrangement of particles, allowing them to deform under stress and return to their original shape when the stress is removed. Liquids, on the other hand, have a more disordered arrangement of particles and tend to flow and change shape easily when subjected to stress.
