Solids, Liquids and Gases
• Practical Arrangement in Solids, Liquids & Gases.
 Solids:- Fixed Shape and Volume. Molecules are very closely packed with a strong force of attraction. Cannot move away from each other. They cannot flow. Liquids:- Do not have a fixed shape but have a fixed volume, They can flow. Molecules are not very close to each other due to weak force of attraction. Molecules in liquids can move and slide over each other. Take the shape of the container in which they are kept. Gases:- Force of attraction between the molecules is very very weak. Molecules in gases are far apart from each other and free to move. Gases flow easily fill the container completely in which kept.
Change of State

 Evaporation:- When we heat water, it changes into water vapour. on heating the particles start moving faster. Become free and escape into the air. Condensation:- When steam is cooled, it condenses to form water again. on cooling steam, the movement of particles become slower. They start to move close to each other. They become less free to move and become loosely packed to form water. Melting:- Ice is solid. When kept in warm place, the movement of water particles in ice increases and they become free from the rigid form. Freezing:- When we cool water the movement of its particles slows down. They come very close to each other and pack into a rigid shape to form ice.
Expansion of matter:-
• Heat a substance, its size increases. Increase in size of matter is called expansion of matter.
• Heating - Particles movement increases so substance expands.
• Eg:-
• To open a tight metal lid of a jar we dip it into hot water because the heat of water causes the lid to expand a little and it opens easily.
Contraction of Matter:-
• If a substance is cooled, size decreases is called contraction of matter.
• Cooling movement of particles of matter slows down space between them decreases. So matter contracts electric cables do not appear loose in winter, while they hang loosely from poles in summer.
