## Is a basketball a solid?

Solid – Examples of solids are a shoe or a basketball. You can see a solid.

## Is a football a solid or gas?

## Is a gas or solid?

Some Characteristics of Gases, Liquids and Solids and the Microscopic Explanation for the Behavior
gas liquid
assumes the shape and volume of its container particles can move past one another assumes the shape of the part of the container which it occupies particles can move/slide past one another

## What is the shape of basketball?

A basketball is a spherical ball used in basketball games. Basketballs usually range in size from very small promotional items that are only a few inches (some centimeters) in diameter to extra large balls nearly 2 feet (60 cm) in diameter used in training exercises.

## Is water the only liquid?

Water is, by far, the most common liquid on Earth. The density of a liquid is usually close to that of a solid, and much higher than in a gas. Therefore, liquid and solid are both termed condensed matter. On the other hand, as liquids and gases share the ability to flow, they are both called fluids.

## What is the hardest state of matter?

As the temperature continues to drop, the matter forms a solid. Due to the solid’s low kinetic energy, particles have no “time” to move around, the particles have more “time” to be attracted. Therefore, solids have the strongest intramolecular forces (because they have the strongest attraction).

## What is the 3 state of matter?

There are three states of matter: solid; liquid and gas. They have different properties, which can be explained by looking at the arrangement of their particles. This is the theoretical temperature at which particles have the least amount of energy and the slowest movement.

## Which is not a solid, liquid or a gas?

It’s not a liquid or a solid. You can’t see it. Directions: Is it a solid, liquid, or a gas? Apple – solid liquid gas. Wind – solid liquid gas. River – solid liquid gas. Inside of a balloon – solid liquid gas. Soda – solid liquid gas. Ice – solid liquid gas.

## How to tell if a basketball has air in it?

Pump as much air into the basketball as you can and then put it back on the balance. Place a can of compressed gas on a scale and check its mass. Ask students whether it will weigh more, less, or the same if you squeeze the trigger and let some gas out. Shoot gas out of the can for a few seconds and then place the can back on the scale.

## What is the mass of an inflated basketball?

Chapter 1, Lesson 5 Multimedia. Air Has Mass, Basketball. The deflated basketball has a mass of 576 grams. After adding air, the inflated basketball has a mass of 581 grams. Therefore, the mass of the air added was 5 grams.

## Why does a ball have a greater mass than a gas?

Students compare the mass of a basketball when it is deflated and after it has been inflated. The inflated ball has the greater mass so students can conclude that gas is matter because it has mass and takes up space. Then students consider how heating and cooling affect molecular motion in gases.
