Physical Science

s8p1.c describes the movement of particles in solids, liquids, gases and plasma

TermDefinition
State of matter In physics, a state of matter is one of the distinct forms that matter takes on. Four states of matter are observable in everyday life: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma.
Solid firm and stable in shape; not liquid or fluid.
Liquid having a consistency like that of water or oil, i.e., flowing freely but of constant volume.
Gas an airlike fluid substance which expands freely to fill any space available, irrespective of its quantity.
Melting point the temperature at which a given solid will melt.
Vaporization in physics and chemistry, the conversion of a solid or a liquid into a gas. (See boiling point, phases of matter, and sublimation.)
Boiling point the temperature at which a liquid boils and turns to vapor.
Condensation The temperature at which a given material changes from a liquid to a gas. The boiling point is the same temperature as the condensation point. (See phases of matter.) Note: Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit or 100 degrees Celsius.
