### What does not change shape when they are moved?

• A.

Solids

• B.

Liquids

• C.

Gases

• D.

Matter

A. Solids
Explanation
Solids do not change shape when they are moved. Unlike liquids and gases, which can flow and take the shape of their containers, solids maintain their shape and volume. This is due to the strong intermolecular forces between the particles in a solid, which keep them in a fixed arrangement. Matter is a general term that encompasses solids, liquids, and gases, so it is not the specific answer to the question.

### What is the matter that has no size or shape of its own?

• A.

Solids

• B.

Liquids

• C.

Gases

• D.

Matter

C. Gases
Explanation
Gases are the matter that has no size or shape of their own. Unlike solids and liquids, gases do not have a definite shape or volume. They can expand to fill the entire space available to them and can be compressed into smaller volumes. Gases consist of individual particles that are constantly moving and have a lot of empty space between them. This allows gases to take on the shape and volume of their container, making them the matter with no specific size or shape.

### What changes shape when they are poured?

• A.

Solids

• B.

Liquids

• C.

Gases

• D.

Matter

B. Liquids
Explanation
Liquids change shape when they are poured because they have a definite volume but not a definite shape. Unlike solids, which maintain their shape, liquids can flow and take the shape of their container. Gases, on the other hand, can also change shape but they expand to fill the entire space available to them. Matter is a general term that encompasses solids, liquids, and gases, so it is not the specific answer to the question.

### ________________ can change ice into liquid (water).

heat
Explanation
Heat is the energy transferred from one object to another due to a difference in temperature. When heat is applied to ice, it increases the temperature of the ice, causing the ice to melt and transform into liquid water. This process is known as melting or thawing. Therefore, heat is the factor that can change ice into liquid water.

### Evaporation is when liquid changes to a ____________.

gas
Explanation
Evaporation is a process in which a liquid, such as water, changes into its gaseous state. This occurs when the molecules of the liquid gain enough energy to break free from their bonds and escape into the surrounding environment. As a result, the liquid transforms into a gas, dispersing and becoming less dense. Evaporation is a crucial part of the water cycle and plays a significant role in various natural processes, such as the formation of clouds and precipitation.

### Condensation is when gas changes to ___________.

liquid
Explanation
Condensation is the process in which a gas changes its state to become a liquid. This occurs when the gas loses heat energy and its particles slow down, coming closer together. As a result, the gas molecules form bonds and become a liquid. This transformation is commonly observed when water vapor in the air cools down and turns into liquid water droplets, such as when dew forms on grass or when steam condenses into water on a cold surface.

### Which is NOT a form of water?

• A.

Ice (solid water)

• B.

Water (liquid water)

• C.

Water vapor (gas water)

• D.

Swimming pool (swimming water)

D. Swimming pool (swimming water)
Explanation
The swimming pool is not a form of water because it is a container or a body of water, not a specific form of water itself. Ice, water, and water vapor are the three main forms of water, representing the solid, liquid, and gas states respectively. The swimming pool, on the other hand, is simply a pool or body of water that can contain any form of water.

### What is evaporation?

• A.

Liquid turns to gas

• B.

Gas turns to liquid

• C.

Water turns to ice

• D.

Ice turns to water

A. Liquid turns to gas
Explanation
Evaporation is the process in which a liquid, such as water, turns into a gas state, usually due to the increase in temperature. This occurs when the molecules of the liquid gain enough energy to overcome the intermolecular forces holding them together, causing them to escape into the air as vapor. Evaporation is a natural phenomenon that happens on the surface of bodies of water, as well as in various industrial processes like drying clothes or distillation.

### What is condensation?

• A.

Liquid turns to gas

• B.

Gas turns to liquid

• C.

Ice turns into jelly

• D.

A peanut butter and Jelly sandwich

B. Gas turns to liquid
Explanation
Condensation is the process in which a gas turns into a liquid. When the temperature of a gas decreases, its particles lose energy and come closer together, forming liquid droplets. This change of state is commonly observed when warm air cools down and forms water droplets on a cold surface, such as dew on grass or fog in the air. Condensation is an important natural phenomenon that plays a role in the water cycle and various weather patterns.
