How can you change the state of matter? In short, changing states of matter involves adding or taking away heat. Adding heat to substances can cause melting, which is when a solid becomes a liquid; boiling, which is when a liquid becomes a gas; or condensation, which is when gas turns into a liquid.
How can we change the state of matter Class 9?
- Solids change into liquid with increase in temperature. ( Solid → Liquid)
- A liquid changes into gas by increase in temperature. ( Liquid → Gas)
- Gas changes into liquid by decrease in temperature. ( Gas → Liquid)
- liquid changes into solid by decrease in temperature. ( Liquid → Solid)
Can matter change its state but how? The answer is ‘Yes’. It can definitely change its shape, size, and volume. For examples, water turns into ice upon freezing, here the form of water converts from the liquid state into the solid state; the matter itself doesn’t change but it transforms its shape.
How can we change the state of matter by pressure? When we apply pressure on a gas enclosed in a cylinder, it starts compressing and converts into liquid. Thus, by applying pressure and reducing temperature a gas can be liquefied. Example – Carbon dioxide is a gas under normal conditions of temperature and pressure.
