|solid||has a definite volume or space particles are very close together don't move past each other keep shape|
|liquid||Has a definite volume but not shape. Particles can move past each
other. Takes shape of containe
|gas||No definite volume or shape. Particles spread out evenly and take
shape of container. Can be squeezed into a smaller volume
|plasma||Like a gas, but conducts electricity like a metal. Occurs with high
temps or electric charge.
|melting point||Solid to liquid or liquid to solid. Same temperature as freezing point.|
|evaporation||When liquids become a gas|
|consedation||When gas becomes a liquid. Gas particles touch a cold surface and
the temperature drops.
|boiling point||The temperature at which evaporation occurs|
