Carter Samuel, the Water Molecule
Carter goes on a water-rific adventure to explore the three states of matter.
Hi! I'm Carter Samuel, the water molecule. I'll be showing you how water acts in three states of matter.
Right now me and my buddies are floating downstream as a liquid. We have a definite mass and volume, no definite shape, but are spread out enough so that we can slide past each other.
The sun is heating up the river and causing some of my buddies and I to evaporate into a gas. In this new state I'm very spread out and have lots of energy!
As a gas I'm darting around so fast like I'm on a sugar rush. I can also be called a water vapor instead of a gas. I have no definite shape and volume, but I do have a definite mass.
It started to get cold, so I began to condensate back to a liquid. Condensation is the process of a gas turning into a liquid. I fell from a rain cloud as precipitation, too.
In fact it got so cold that I froze into a solid, or ice.
Also, my molecules are very close and packed together so that we only move the slightest bit.
I hope you liked learning how water(H2O) acts in the three states of matter. That's all for me, Carter Samuel, the water molecule.
