Solids, Liquids and Gases
Explains how particles in matter behave. Three assumptions: 1. All matter is composed of small particles (atoms, molecules, and ions). 2. These particles are in constant, random motion. 3. These particles are colliding with each other and the walls of their container.
Imagine a room filled with tiny bouncing ping pong balls. That is what atoms are like! A very small amount of energy is lost with each collision.
Thermal energy = Kinetic energy + Potential energy Moving Energy Forces holding particles together
Temperature : the measure of average kinetic energy Quick definition: How fast are the particles moving? Absolute Zero : no more thermal energy can be removed; particles barely moving at all. °C or 0 K (kelvin)
Solid Melting Liquid Condensation Gas Sublimation Freezing Boiling
Chemical Properties: How a substance reacts. Examples: Flammability, reactions to light Changes into a new substance during the reaction. Physical Properties: Characteristics you can observe. Examples: Color, boiling point, magnetic Doesn’t change what the substance is.
Particles packed tightly together and constantly vibrating in place. Form a geometric arrangement, which give it specific chemical and physical properties. Solids have their own shape and a definite shape and volume
Particles packed tightly together, but are able to move around more freely. Liquids can flow; their particles can slide past each other. Liquids have a definite volume, but take the shape of their container.
Particles have enough kinetic (moving) energy to separate and spread far apart or contract. Gases do not have a fixed volume or shape. They fill up the space they are in.
A particle has enough kinetic (moving) energy to escape from other particles. 2 ways: Evaporation: happens on surface of a liquid at room temperature Boiling : happens throughout liquid at a specific temperature.
To become a gas, the pressure of a vapor in the liquid must be higher than the pressure of the air on the surface. Heat of vaporization : energy required to change a liquid to a gas.
Diffusion: Spreading of particles throughout a given volume unit they are evenly distributed. Example: spraying perfume in a room hill.com/sites/ /student_view0/chapter2 /animation__how_diffusion_works.html hill.com/sites/ /student_view0/chapter2 /animation__how_diffusion_works.html
Most common state of matter in the universe. Plasma: matter made of + and – charged particles, but is neutral overall. The collisions are very intense and cause electrons to be taken away. Examples: the sun, lightening bolts, neon and fluorescent tubes.
Balloons stay inflated because of the atoms colliding with the walls of the container. If you add air to the balloon, there are more air particles. Therefore, more collisions are occurring and the container expands.
↓ volume = ↑pressure (constant temperature)
P 1 V 1 = P 2 V 2 Example: A balloon has a volume of 10.0 L at a pressure of 100 kPa. What will the new volume be when the pressure drops to 50 kPa? P 1 = V 1 = P 2 = V 2 = 100 kPa 10.0 L 50 kPa 20 L P 1 V 1 = P 2 V * 10 = 50 * V = 50 * V L = V 2
What happens when you heat a container that can’t change shape? ↑ temperature = ↑ pressure Pressure builds until the container can’t hold it any more and it explodes.
↑ temperature = ↑ volume (constant pressure)
V 1 /T 1 = V 2 /T 2 (temp must be in kelvin) Example: A balloon has a volume of 2.0 L at a temperature of 25ºC. What will the new volume be when the temperature drops to 10ºC? V 1 = T 1 = V 2 = T 2 = 2.0 L 25ºC = 298 K 1.9 L 10ºC = 283 K V 1 /T 1 = V 2 /T = V * V 2 = 2.0 * 283 V 2 = 2.0 * V 2 = 1.9 L
