solid matter that has a definite shape and definite volume
liquid matter that has an indefinite shape but a definite volume
gas matter that has an indefinite shape and an indefinite volume
surface tension uneven forces acting on the particles on the surface of a liquid
plasma is high energy matter consisting of positively and negatively charged particles
viscosity a measurement of a liquid's resistance to flow
crystalline solid is a solid that has its particles arranged in specific repeating order
amorphous solid is a solid that has its particles arranged in a random order

kinetic energy energy of motion
Charles’s law states that the volume of a gas increases with increasing temperature, if the pressure is constant.
absolute zero The lowest possible temperature at which particles no longer move
