Title: Solids, liquids, and gases
Caption: The kinetic-molecular theory can be used to interpret (or explain) the bulk properties of solids, liquids, and gases. In solids, the particles are close together and in fixed positions. In liquids, the particles are close together, but they are free to move about. In gases, the particles are far apart and are in rapid random motion.
Notes: Based on this figure, why does a quart of water vapor weigh so much less than a quart of liquid water?
