Intermolecular Forces versus Thermal Energy of three states of matter

In this post, we will first define Thermal energy, and then we will see how competition between molecular interaction energy (Intermolecular Force based energy that keeps molecules together) and thermal energy (that moves the molecules apart) influences the states of matter. What is Thermal Energy? Thermal energy is the energy of a body due to […]

States of matter – chemistry revision notes

This post briefly discusses the states of matter with their important characteristics. We also define the Triple point with one example. Three States Of Matter – with characteristics Matter exists in three different physical states, namely solid, liquid and gaseous states. The important characteristics of the three states are: Solid state: A solid possesses a […]
