particles of matter have space between them

Particle physics - Particle physics is a branch of physics that studies the elementary constituents of matter and radiation, and the
interactions between them. It is also called high energy physics, because many elementary particles do not occur under normal
circumstances in nature, but can be created and..

Gas - In physics, a gas is a state of matter, consisting of a collection of particles ( molecules, atoms, ions, electrons, etc.) without a
definite shape or volume that are in more or less random motion. Due to the electronic nature of the aforementioned particles, a '
force field' is present throughout the space around them. Interactions between these 'force fields' from one particle to the next give
rise to the term intermolecular forces. Dependent on distance, these intermolecular forces influence the motion of these particles and
hence their thermodynamic properties. At the temperatures and pressures characteristic of many applications, these particles are
normally greatly separated. This separation corresponds to a very weak attractive force. As a result, for many applications, this
intermolecular force becomes negligible. A gas also exhibits the following characteristics: When analyzing a system, it is typical to
specify a length scale. A larger length scale may correspond..

Time Cosmic Rays Sun Astrophysics Matter & Energy Quantum Physics Physics Materials Science Particle physics and nuclear
physics concern themselves with the study of these particles, their interactions, and matter made up of them which do not aggregate
into atoms. These particles include atomic constituents such as electrons, protons, and neutrons (protons and neutrons are actually
composite particles, made up of quarks), as well as other particles such as photons and neutrinos which are produced copiously in
the sun. However, most of the particles that have been discovered and studied are not encountered under normal earth conditions;
they are produced in cosmic rays and during scattering processes in particle accelerators.. For more information about the topic

Particle accelerator - A particle accelerator is a device that uses electric fields to propel electrically charged particles to high speeds
and magnetic fields to contain them. See also: Space & Time Cosmic Rays Matter & Energy Quantum Physics Physics Energy
Technology An ordinary CRT televison set is a simple form of accelerator. There are two basic types: linear (i.e. straight-line)
accelerators and circular accelerators. In the circular accelerator, particles move in a circle until they reach sufficient energy. The
particle track is typically bent into a circle using electromagnets. At present the highest energy accelerators are all circular colliders..

Inorganic Chemistry It is also called 'high energy physics', because many elementary particles do not occur under normal
circumstances in nature, but can be created and detected during energetic collisions of other particles, as is done in particle
accelerators. Modern particle physics research is focused on subatomic particles, which have less structure than atoms. These
include atomic constituents such as electrons, protons, and neutrons (protons and neutrons are actually composite particles, made up
of quarks), particles produced by radiative and scattering processes, such as photons, neutrinos, and muons, as well as a wide range
of exotic particles. Strictly speaking, the term particle is a misnomer because the dynamics of particle physics are go....

Listening To Dark Matter: New Clues From Lab Deep Underground - ScienceDaily (Oct. 20, 2008) — A team of researchers in
Canada have made a bold stride in the struggle to detect dark matter. The PICASSO collaboration has documented the discovery of a
significant difference between the acoustic signals induced by neutrons and alpha particles in a detector based on superheated
liquids. See also: Space & Time Dark Matter Astrophysics Sun Matter & Energy Detectors Quantum Physics Physics Reference List
of phases of matter Neutrino Radioactive decay Nuclear reaction Since neutron induced signals are very similar to dark matter
induced signals, this new discovery could lead to improved background suppression in dark matter searches with this type of detector.
So far, alpha particles have been an obstacle to the detection of dark matter's weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) in
PICASSO. This detector, which is based on the operation principle of the classic bubble chamber, is sensitive to alpha particles over
exactly the same temperature and energy....
 ALL matter is made up of tiny particles (atoms and molecules).
 These particles are constantly moving.
 Particles of matter have big spaces between them. In solids, a smaller space, in liquids a relatively larger space
and in gases, a huge space.
 When heated, particles move faster and have more collisions, therefoe taking up more space and making an
object expand. When cooled, particles move more slowly having less colisions, therefore taking up less space.
 Particles of matter are held together by strong attractive forces.
 Each substance has unique particles that are different from the particles of other substances.
 KE:mv2/2 which is: Kinetic Energy (the energy used to power molecules) is mass (the weight of the particle,
because it takes more energy to move if you're fat than if you're skinny) times the squared velocity (that, I have no
idea) divided by 2 (ditto).
Experiments

pour 25 ml of water into a graduated cylinder (which can hold 50 ml)


pour 25 ml of isopropyl alcohol into a second cylinder

ask the class how much fluid there will be when you mix them

then mix them, and see that the combined liquid only occupies 47ml or so of volume...the "compression" shows that the
molecules filled in the spaces of the other substance
