What Happens to a Solid When It Is Heated?

Answer

When solids are heated, their physical state can change and they can become liquids. This process is known as melting, and occurs when the molecules in the solid absorb enough energy to move freely and farther apart from each other. This weakens the bonds between the molecules, eventually changing the state of the solid.
