Particular Theory Of Matter

The Particle Theory of Matter This theory has five points: 1. All matter is made of extremely tiny particles (much, much smaller than cells!) 2. Each pure substance is made of just one kind of particle 3. Particles attract each other 4. Particles are always in motion 5. The temperature of the particles controls how much they move about.
