Energy and States of Matter Unit 1 Physical Science HS Credit Mrs. Rubel
The States of Matter States of matter are the physical forms in which a substance can exist: Solid (crystalline and amorphous) Liquids (with surface tension and viscosity) Gas (pressure, Boyle’s Law and Charles's Law) Plasma (conductivity)
Solids When matter has a definite shape and volume. The particles are so close together that the atoms or molecules move, but not fast enough to overcome the gravitational attraction between them. Each particle is locked into place by the particles around it.
2 Types of Solids Crystalline solids – atoms/molecules are arranged in repeating pattern of rows. Ex: diamonds, ice and iron. Amorphous solids –atoms/molecules are not in a particular order or organized pattern. Ex: wax, rubber.
Liquids Liquids take the shape of the container they are in. The atoms can move fast enough to overcome the attraction between them. The volume remains the same, regardless of the container.
The ability of a fluid to exert an upward force on an object immersed in it. If the buoyant force is equal to the object’s weight, then the object will float. If the buoyant force is less than the object’s weight, then the object will sink.
Archimedes and the Volume of Gold Object will sink until the weight of the water displaced equals the weight of the object.
Bottom portion of the ship will sink until the weight of the ship and the buoyancy of the water are balanced. This is possible because of the compartments of air. Titanic vs. iceberg (guess who wins?)
Pressure = force per unit area Pascal’s Principle states that pressure applied to a fluid is transmitted throughout the fluid (ex: hydraulics) Hydraulics: when liquids in a container are pressed, the liquids move outward, causing pressure. This pressure can be a force that can do work. Examples: dentist chair, car brakes. F P A
Bernoulli realized that, as the velocity of a fluid increases, the pressure exerted by the fluid decreases. Examples: chemical sprayers (see page 488), airplane wings
The momentum the plane is building as it moves down a runway allows the air above the curve of a wing to move faster than the air below the wing. Since there is less pressure above the wing, the air below the wings lift upward. So what determines how quickly and how much lift a plane can get? The thrust and wing size determine lift of a plane.
Lift of the plane is determined by the plane’s thrust and wing size. Thrust is the forward force produced by the plane’s engine. When the plane travels forward with more thrust, the air above the wings moves quickly, reducing more pressure. Planes with larger thrust force can use smaller wings, which keeps the plane’s weight low.
Planes that cannot build up great speed because they don’t have the engines for great thrust make up for it in wing size. Large planes like gliders don’t need to build up great speed, but there is more moving air above the larger wings that allow them to lift off. The larger the wings, the smaller the engine that is needed. (What type of runway might you need for this?)
Race cars travel very fast, so the air above them moves very fast. So why don’t they take off? That is what spoilers are for. The spoiler on the back of a race car is an upside down wing. It allows the air below the spoiler to have less pressure, so that the air above the spoiler pushes down on the car and prevents it from “taking off”!
While moving air creates an area of low pressure, it also creates a force that opposes motion. The force that opposes or restricts motion in a fluid is called drag. Example: Trying to walk down the street during a strong hurricane. Why is it difficult? Planes and birds can adjust their wings to over come the drag of turbulence (unpredictable flow of air). Planes have flaps that move up and down to control drag during turbulence.
Sometimes, when cold and warm air meet in the upper atmosphere, it creates “pockets” of different air pressure. When you are flying through these pockets, the plane experiences turbulence. Sometimes it is a small amount, but sometimes it can be very rough. Planes are equipped to adapt to turbulence by changing wing flaps, but it still can be uncomfortable! pq6I&feature=related&safety_mode=true&per sist_safety_mode=1&safe=active pq6I&feature=related&safety_mode=true&per sist_safety_mode=1&safe=active
Liquid Properties Surface tension – the force that acts upon the particles at the surface of a liquid, causing the liquid to form spherical drops. ◦ When the attraction is between dissimilar molecules (i.e., hydrogen and oxygen), then it is adhesive force. -When the attraction is between similar molecules (i.e., hydrogen and hydrogen), then it is a cohesive force. Viscosity – A liquid’s resistance to flow. The stronger the attraction between a liquid’s particles, the more viscous the liquid is. Example: Honey and motor oil (yum!)
Liquid Crystals have characteristics of both solids and liquids. They will begin to melt at melting point, but they do not lose their arrangements – they retain their geometric order in specific directions. Because they respond to electromagnetic fields, they can be used in the displays of watches, calculators, etc.
Gases Gas – the matter can change both shape and volume. The atoms/molecules move so fast they can break away from the attraction from each other. As gases expand, there is actually empty space between particles. Pressure – The amount of force exerted on a given area. The more gas you have in a given area, the more the crowded particles collide with each other at a faster rate.
When the attractive forces between particles is overcome, then the movement/collision between particles will cause diffusion. Diffusion is the spreading of particles throughout a given volume until they are uniformly distributed. Diffusion can occur in solids and liquids, but most rapidly in gases.
Boyle’s Law – For a fixed amount of gas at a constant temperature, the volume of this gas increases as it’s pressure decreases. Example: Balloons. If you squeeze a balloon, you are applying pressure to the gas inside. The particles of gas are forced to move close together. If you let go and release pressure, than the gas expands in volume.
When meteorologists release weather balloons, they only put a small volume of gas in each balloon. The balloon will travel to the upper layers of our atmosphere to get the information, where the air is thin. Partner share: How does this apply to Boyle’s Law?
A balloon has a volume of 8.0 L at a pressure of 90 kPa. What will be the new volume is the pressure drops to 40.0 kPa? Boyle’s Formula = P 1 V 1 = P 2 V 2 P 1 = 90.0 kPAV 1 = 8.0 P 2 = 40.0 kPAV 2 = ? So… P 1 V 1 (90.0 kPa) (8.0 L) V 2 = P 2 V 2 = 40.0 kPa = 18 L
For a fixed amount of gas at a constant pressure, the volume of the gas increases as its temperature increases. The volume of gas will decrease as the temperature decreases. Why? When the temperature increases, the particles of gas move faster and expand as much as they can (increase volume). If it is cooler, the particles slow down and do not expand (decrease volume).
V 1 V 2 T 1 = T 2 (Pressure must remain constant) A 3.0 L balloon at 10.0 o C was placed in a container of ice water (2.0 o C). What is the resulting volume? V 1 = 3.0L T 1 = 10 0 o C V 2 = ? T 2 = 2.0 o C
Absolute Zero - Temp at which... ◦ the volume of a gas would equal zero. ◦ all particle motion would stop. -273°C or 0 K

Plasma doesn’t have a definite shape or volume, and the particles have broken apart. However, plasma has conductivity, which means that an electric current can go through it. Electric and magnetic fields can affect plasmas, but not gases. Natural plasmas are found in lightning, fire and in the aurora borealis (Northern Lights). The artificial plasmas created in fluorescent lights are created by passing electrical currents through the gasses.
All changes of state are physical changes. The change requires a change in energy. If energy is removed, then the particles move slower (water to ice). If energy is added, then the particles move faster (raising the temperature). Heat, which is a transfer of energy, causes temperature changes, which causes a change in state.
1)Melting Solids to Liquids – the melting point is the temperature when a solid becomes a liquid. Melting point is a characteristic property of a substance. Melting is an endothermic change, because energy is absorbed by the substance as it changes state. This energy increases the motion of the molecules until they can overcome their attractions to each other.
2) Freezing Liquids to Solids- This is at the substance’s freezing point. Remember, you don’t loose energy (it changes form) Proof that freezing and melting points are the same……
When thermal energy (heat) is added, the liquid begins to change state. The freezing/melting points are equal, as are the points for boiling/vaporization. At 0oC, all energy is put into the ice to overcome attractive forces of particles. At 100oC, the water is using all energy for boiling or vaporization. See the graph on page 480.
3) Vaporization: Liquids to Gases - boiling is vaporization that occurs when a substance reaches its boiling point, which then leads to evaporation. - Evaporation – vaporization that occurs at the surface of a liquid below it’s boiling point. The particles at the surface move fast enough to break away from the surrounding particles, and thus become a gas.
Thermal expansion is an increase in the size of a substance when the temperature is increased. When the temperature of an object is lowered, particles slow down. The attraction between the particles increases, so they move closer together.
When heat is added and particles begin to expand, then there is a increased distance between the particles. This expansion means a decrease in density. This is why air is heated in a hot air balloon. The air inside the balloon is less dense than the outside air, so the balloon will rise.
Question: You visit a friend in Denver, Colorado. You are cooking pasta, and you notice that it takes very little time for the water to boil. It appears to boil much faster than it did in Atlanta. There must be some relationship between the higher altitude and the boiling point of water. What is it?
4) Condensation – Gases to Liquids The condensation point of a substance is the temperature at which the gas becomes a liquid and the same temperature as the boiling point at a given pressure. Example: at sea level the same temperature that causes evaporation creates steam (condensation). The energy is removed (exothermic change) so that the molecules of the evaporated gas cool enough to slow down and clump together.
Sublimation - when solids go directly into a gas. This can only occur when the atoms or molecules must move from being very tightly packed to being very spread apart (completely overcoming the attraction). This also requires energy (endothermic change). Example: dry ice. Once heat energy is added, it goes from a solid to a gas.
The opposite of sublimation – energy is taken away so quickly that the gas turns immediately into a solid (no liquid state.) Freezing a gas (i.e., nitrogen or carbon dioxide) into a solid.
An endothermic change occurs when an object is receiving thermal energy. Examples: Ice cube melting, the air around your breath on a cold day.. An exothermic change occurs when an object loses thermal energy (heat). Examples: your hand holding the ice, your breath on a cold day.
