A diver is able to cut through water in a swimming pool. Which property of matter does this observation show?
What are the characteristics of particles of matter?
The mass per unit volume of a substance is called density (density = mass/volume). Arrange the following in order of increasing density − air, exhaust from chimney, honey, water, chalk, cotton, and iron.
Tabulate the differences in the characteristics of states of matter.
Comment upon the following:- rigidity, compressibility, fluidity, filling a gas container, shape, kinetic energy, and density.
Give reasons:- A gas fills completely the vessel in which it is kept.
A gas exerts pressure on the walls of the container.
Give reasons:- We can easily move our hand in air, but to do the same through a solid block of wood, we need a karate expert.
Give reasons:- A wooden table should be called a solid.
