Matter can exist in four different phases: solid, liquid, and gas, and plasma. The phase of matter depends on the temperature and pressure it is exposed to. States of matter can also be changed by adding or taking away energy.
Phases of Matter
Solid - a state of matter in which the particles are closely packed together and do not move around easily.
Liquid - a state of matter in which the particles are more spread out than in a solid and move around more easily.
Gas - a state of matter in which the particles are spread out even further and have the most freedom to move around.
In which phase of matter are particles most spread out?
Create a drawing of a three-headed dragon. The dragon must have a tail, wings, and horns and must be shown in a dynamic pose as if it is about to take flight. Have fun!
