Contents:-
• What is matter ?
• Size of the particles of matter.
• Characteristics of particles of matter.
• States of matter.
• Solids.
• Liquids.
• Gases.
• Pictures comparing three states of matter.
• Effect of change of temperature.
• Interconversion of three states of matter.
WHAT IS MATTER
• Everything in this universe is made up of material which scientists have named “matter”.
• Matter is made up of particles.

EXAMPLES:

Air , food, water, stones, clouds, stars etc.

CHARACTERISTICS OF PARTICLES OF MATTER
• Particles of matter have space between them.
• The particles of matter are very small- they are small beyond our imagination !!!!
• Particles of matter attract each other.
• Particles of matter move continuously.
SOLIDS :-

Have a definite shape.

Have distinct boundaries.

Have fixed volume.

Have negligible compressibility.

Have a tendency to maintain their shape when subjected to outside force.

Examples

Pen, book , thread, brick etc.

LIQUIDS:-
• Have no fixed shape.
• Have fixed volume.
• Take up the shape of container in which they are kept.
• Flow and change shape so they are called fluid.

Examples

Water , oil , juice , cold drink etc.

GASES:-
• Have no fixed shape and volume.
• Are highly compressible.
• Have large space between particles.
• Particles of gases move randomly at high speed.

Examples

Air ,Oxygen, Nitrogen, CNG etc.

EFFECT OF CHANGE OF TEMPERATURE
• Melting : Solid -> Liquid
• Vaporisation : Liquid -> Gas
• Condensation : Gas -> Liquid
• Freezing : Liquid -> Solid
• Sublimation : Solid -> Gas
