This storyboard does not have a description.
Matter occurs in four states: solids, liquid, gasses, and plasma.
Often the states of matter of a substance may be changed by adding or removing heat energy from it.
For Example, the addition of heat can melt ice into liquid water and turn water into steam.
Example: of solids include ice (solid water), a bar of steel, and dry ice (solid carbon dioxide).
A solid has a definite shape and volume.
A liquid has a definite volume but takes the shape of its container.
Examples of liquid include water and oil
A gas has neither a definite volume nor a definite shape.
Examples of gasses are air, oxygen, and helium. Some chemistry texts name solids, liquids, and gases as the three states of matter.
Plasma has neither a definite volume nor a definite shape.
Plamsa often is seen in ionized gases. Plasma is district from a gas because it possesses unique properties.
