Matter Matter is anything that has mass and volume. There are three main types of matter. They are solid, liquid, and gas. here here Click here to learn more about the types of matter.here

States of Matter The state of matter is determined by the movement of particles within the matter. SolidsLiquidsGases here here Select a state of matter above to learn more about it or click here to take the Matter Self Quiz.here

Matter Self Quiz Question #1 Matter is anything that has __________ and ___________. Answer #1 Matter is anything that has mass and volume. Click here for answer. Click here to go to Question #2.

Particle Motion of Solids here hereThere are two basic types of particle arrangement in solids. Click here to find out more.here The particles in solids don’t move much, but they do vibrate slightly. Notice how the solid maintains its shape in the container.

Crystalline vs. Amorphous Solids Crystalline Solids The particles in a crystalline solid are arranged in a repeating pattern. Amorphous Solids The particles in an amorphous solid are arranged randomly. try this try thisTo review solids, try this!try this here hereTo return to States of Matter, click here.here hereTo take the Solids Self Quiz, click here.here

Particle Motion of Liquids Want more information? Click here. The particles in liquids slide past one another. As you can see, a liquid will take the shape of its container.

Liquids Self Quiz Question #2 True or False: Liquids have a definite shape and volume. Answer #2 False. They have a definite volume, but they take the shape of the container they are in. Click here for answer. Click here to go to Question #3.

Liquids Self Quiz Question #3 What property of a liquid allows you to drink through a straw? Answer #3 Surface tension. It holds the particles together, pulling them through the straw. Click here for answer. End of Quiz. Click here to return to States of Matter.

Particle Motion of Gases Want to know how to find the volume of a gas? Check this out! Gas particles move fast and strike one another. Gases spread out to fill their container. What does this tell you about their shape and volume?

Volume of a Gas To return to States of Matter, click here.here hereTo take the Gases Self Quiz, click here.here The volume of a gas is found by measuring the volume of the container the gas is in. Want to know why? here here Click here.here

Gases Self Quiz Question #2 True or False: Gases have a definite shape and volume. Answer #2 False. Gases take the shape and volume of the container they are in. Click here for answer. Click here to go to Question #3.
