1
Q

Can you compress a solid?

A

No

2
Q

What is a substance?

A

Something that is made from just one type of particle e.g. gold is a substance made from gold particles.

3
Q

Does a solid have a 'fixed shape'? 

A

YES

4
Q

Can you see the particles that make up materials?

A

No - they are too small to see.

5
Q

Can you compress a gas?

A

Yes - because its particles are far apart

6
Q

What is meant by the properties of a material?

A

The features of the material e.g. is it strong

7
Q

Identify the 3 states of matter.

A

Solid

Liquid

Gas

8
Q

Does a liquid have a fixed shape?

A

No - liquids can take the shape of the container that they are poured into.

9
Q

Does a liquid flow? (can it be poured?)

A

Yes- because its particles can roll around each other.

10
Q

Describe the particles in a solid.

A

Neatly arranged

Vibrating

All touching

11
Q

What is a mixture?

A

A mixture is something that is made from lots of different types of particles e.g. air is a mixture of different particles.

12
Q

Which state is shown below?

A

Liquid

13
Q

Does a gas flow? (can it be poured?)

A

Yes - because gas particles are free to move around

14
Q

Which state is shown below?

A

Gas

15
Q

Does a gas have a fixed shape?

A

No - they can take the shape of the container that they are in e.g. a balloon

16
Q

Does a solid flow? (can it be poured?)

A

No

17
Q

What is matter?

A

The 'stuff' that everything is made from.

18
Q

We say that all materials are made from tiny pieces called...

A

particles

19
Q

Describe the particles in a liquid.

A

Randomly arranged

Rolling around one another

Touching

20
Q

Which state is shown below?

A

Solid

21
Q

Describe the particles in a gas.

A

Randomly arranged

Moving around

Not touching

22
Q

Can you compress a liquid?

A

No - its particles are too close together.

23
Q

What is meant by a state?

A

Whether something is a solid, liquid or gas.
