What happens when heating the states of matter.

read the title.
However, we don't have pictures of ice and water here so we'er gonna pretend those circles are that of a solid being heated up, by the way, a solid's molecules barely move, and are packed close together.
We're here to talk about what happens when different types of matter are heated up.
From the images, assuming that the left group is solid, when a solid is heated up, it gains energy, the molecules move faster, alowing them to, as seen on the right, flow over and around eachother.
Once the melting point is reached, the solid becomes liquid, taking the shape of it's container and allowing the molecules to flow around each other. A liquid's molecules move faster than that of a solid's and are not as close to eachother, now, to heat up the liquid.
When something is heated up, it adds energy to the molecules of what is being heated.
When a liquid is heated, it gains more energy, the molecules move faster, and some break away, as gasses, usualy at the boiling point, the whole liquid starts bubbling and many more molecules become gas, which moves about the air freely, usualy far from other molecules, and always very fast.
Gasses can take the shape of their containers, just like liquids can.
And, as a side note, gasses also tend to be invisible.
Thats it, the comic is done.
Feel free to go grade the next one now.
