Storyboard Text

  • 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.
