THEN BACK TO A SOLID AGAIN? - KATHY (age 11)
The three states, or phases, of matter are gas, liquid and solid. A phase ... When
a gas changes into a liquid, it undergoes a process called vaporization. When ...
When a solid turns into a liquid it is called fusion, more commonly referred to as
melting. When a material moves from one state of matter into another it is called ...
We can change a solid into a liquid or gas by changing its temperature. This is
known as changing its state. Water is a liquid at room temperature, but becomes
Change of state. Substances can change state, usually when they are heated or
cooled. For example, liquid water turns into steam when it is heated enough, ...
When a substance goes from one state of matter — solid, liquid, or gas — to ...
solid begins to turn into a gas, but no liquid is formed during this phase change.
There are three states of matter that we know about: solids, liquids and gases. ...
This causes the particles to move more and the solid to change into a liquid, ...
Freezing, or solidification, is a phase transition in which a liquid turns into a solid
when its temperature is lowered to or below its freezing point. All known liquids ...
For example, water is a liquid at room temperature. If we cool it down, it changes
into a solid – ice. If we heat it up, it changes into a gas – steam.
Solid to gas phase transitions are known as "sublimation." In most cases, solids
turn into gases only after an intermediate liquid state. There are many examples ...
