Unit 7 - States of Matter

I CAN Statements

Molecules in Motion (C2.2A-B)

  • Describe conduction in terms of molecules bumping into each other to transfer energy. Explain why there is better conduction in solids and liquids than gases.

Describe the various states of matter in terms of the motion and arrangement of the molecules (atoms) making up the substance.

Properties of Substances (C4.3A-B)

  • Recognize that substances that are solid at room temperature have stronger attractive forces than liquids at room temperature, which have stronger attractive forces than gases at room temperature.
  • Recognize that solids have a more ordered, regular arrangement of their particles than liquids and that liquids are more ordered than gases.
