Matter

By November 23, 2022No Comments

Matter is the stuff that makes up the universe. It is anything that has mass and occupies space. All matter is made up of atoms, which are the smallest units of matter. Atoms are made up of even smaller particles called protons, neutrons, and electrons.

The three states of matter are solid, liquid, and gas. The fourth state of matter, plasma, can be found in stars and other high-temperature environments. The properties of each state depend on how closely the atoms are packed together. In a solid, the atoms are tightly packed together so they don’t move around much. This gives solids their characteristic shapes and makes them hard to compress or break apart. Liquids have less order than solids but more order than gases; their molecules can move around but they stay close together because they’re attracted to each other by forces called InterMolecular Forces (IMFs). Gases have very little order; their molecules fly around independently from each other because IMFs aren’t strong enough to keep them close together.
