What is the difference between solids, liquids and gases? How does each state behave?
- The kinetic theory of matter states that particles are in constant motion and there are forces of attraction between them.
- The attraction between particles in solids is strong and they are packed very close together.
- The particles in liquids are close together and they don't have a fixed shape.
- The particles in gases are far apart and have weak forces of attraction between them.
