# How do particles move in a solid liquid and gas?

## How do particles move in a solid liquid and gas?

gas vibrate and move freely at high speeds. liquid vibrate, move about, and slide past each other. solid vibrate (jiggle) but generally do not move from place to place.

## How do particles move from solid to liquid?

Melting occurs when a solid is heated and turns to liquid. The particles in a solid gain enough energy to overcome the bonding forces holding them firmly in place. Typically, during melting, the particles start to move about, staying close to their neighbouring particles, then move more freely.

How do the particles move in a gas?

Gas In a gas, particles are in continual straight-line motion. The kinetic energy of the molecule is greater than the attractive force between them, thus they are much farther apart and move freely of each other. In most cases, there are essentially no attractive forces between particles.

How do particles of solid liquid and gas differ?

Solids have a definite shape and volume. Liquids have a definite volume, but take the shape of the container. Gases have no definite shape or volume.

### How do particles move in a gas?

In gases the particles move rapidly in all directions, frequently colliding with each other and the side of the container. With an increase in temperature, the particles gain kinetic energy and move faster.

### How are particles in gases?

How are particles in a liquid?

They are close together and vibrate in position but don’t move past one another. In a liquid, the particles are attracted to each other but not as much as they are in a solid. The particles of a liquid are close together, always moving, and can slide past one another.

How are the particles of solid liquid and gas differ from each other?

solid: Has a definite shape and volume. liquid: Has a definite volume, but take the shape of the container. gas: Has no definite shape or volume.

#### How is the motion of particles in a gas different from the motion of particles in a liquid?

– The particles of a gas move quickly and are able to spread apart from one another. – The particles of a liquid are able to move past each other.

#### How are the particles of a liquid different from the particles of a gas?

In a liquid, the particles are attracted to each other but not as much as they are in a solid. The particles of a liquid are close together, always moving, and can slide past one another. In a gas, the particles have very little attraction to each other.

What holds particles together in liquids and solids?

Intermolecular forces are weaker attractions that hold molecules or noble gas particles close together when they are in a liquid or solid form. Gas particles have broken away from the intermolecular forces that hold liquids and solids together. An alternative name for intermolecular forces is the van der Waals forces.
