Liquid The state of matter that has a definite volume but not a definite shape.
Viscosity The resistance to flow
Gas A form of matter that doesn’t have a definite volume of shape.
Surface Tension The force that acts on the surface of a liquid and that tends to minimize the area of the surface
Temperature A measure of how hot or cold something is (a measure of the movement of particles)
Volume A measure of the size of a body or region in 3D space.
Pressure The amount of force exerted per unit area of a surface.
Boyle’s Law The law that the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to the pressure of a gas when temperature is constant.
Charles’s Law The law that states that the volume of a gas is directly proportional to the temperature of a gas when pressure is constant.
Melting The change of state in which a solid becomes a liquid by adding energy.
Evaporation The change of a substance from liquid to gas
