A solid is the state of matter that has a definite shape and
The particles are very close together because they have a very
strong attraction for each other.
Since they are so close, they cannot move around. So they just
vibrate in place.
PROPERTIES OF SOLIDS
There are two types of solids: Crystalline and Amorphous.
TYPES OF SOLIDS
Particles in a repeated
pattern of rows
Particles have no special
Particles don’t move around Particles don’t move around
Ex: iron, diamond, ice Ex; glass, rubber, wax
All liquids have surface tension.
Surface tension – a force that holds together particles at the
surface of a liquid.
ST makes some liquids to form spherical drops (like water).
Liquids have different ST’s than each other.
