States of Matter

Learning Goal:

Students will be able to demonstrate their knowledge of the states of matter through illustrations and descriptions. These illustrations and descriptions should include:

How the molecules in a solid, liquid and gas compare to each other.

How temperature relates to the kinetic energy of molecules.

Procedure:

Open the internet browser and enter the address:

Open the Ã¢â‚¬Å“States of MatterÃ¢â‚¬Â Simulation and select Ã¢â‚¬Å“StatesÃ¢â‚¬Â

Investigation:

1.Predict what the molecules of a solid, liquid and gas look like. Illustrate your prediction with a drawing.

Solid Liquid Gas

2. Complete the table below by exploring the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Solid, Liquid, GasÃ¢â‚¬Â tab in the simulation.

Test

your predictions and record your observations by recording the temperature and illustrations of each substance in the three states of matter.

3.Sketch a graph of Kinetic Energy vs. Temperature. Use this graph to describe the relationship between the two concepts.

4. Write a summary paragraph, which includes drawings, to demonstrate you have mastered the learning goal. Be sure to incorporate both concepts of the learning goal:

How the molecules in a solid, liquid and gas compare to each other.

How temperature relates to the kinetic energy of molecules.

Open the Ã¢â‚¬Å“States of MatterÃ¢â‚¬Â Simulation and select Ã¢â‚¬Å“Phase ChangesÃ¢â‚¬Â

Explain how a change in temperature affects the pressure inside a container.

Explain this phase diagram by relating what you know about temperature, states of matter and pressure.
