Unformatted text preview: Atomic/Molecular View All matter is made up of little tiny particles called atoms. Groups of two or more atoms bound together are called molecules. Much of what you see around us can be explained with the notion that atoms and molecules are always moving. http://www.chemistry.ohio-state.edu/betha/nealGasLaw http://titanium.fullerton.edu/shock/PHASED.htm Atomic/Molecular View Increase temperature: faster molecular motion Solid or liquid changing to gas: spreading out of molecules due to increased motion, allows molecules to overcome forces of attraction Test Yourself Third Grade Quiz: http://www.1001-periodic-table-quiz-ques...
