Phases of matter

Phases of matter ...

TermDefinition
Solid A solid is matter in which the molecules are very close together and cannot move around.
Liquid A liquid is matter in which the molecules are close together and move around slowly.
Gas A gas is matter in which the molecules are widely separated, move around freely, and move at high speeds.
Plasma A plasma is a gas that is composed of free-floating ions (atoms stripped of some electrons - positively charged) and free electrons (negatively charged). A plasma conducts electrical currents.
Supercritical Fluid A supercritical (or critical) fluid is a liquid/gas under extreme pressure. These supercritical fluids have unique characteristics, the density of a liquid and the mobility of a gas.
Degenerate Gas A degenerate gas is one that is super-compressed and very dense. The molecules of this degenerate gas are virtually touching one another and the gas acts much like a solid.
