viscosity A measure of the resistance of a liquid to flow, which is affected by the size and shape of particles, and generally increases as the temperature decreases and as intermolecular forces increase. surface tension The energy required to increase the surface area of a liquid by a given amount; results from an uneven distribution of attractive forces. surfactant A compound, such as soap, that lowers the surface tension of water by disrupting hydrogen bonds between water molecules; also called surface active agent. crystalline solid A solid whose atoms, ions, or molecules are arranged in an orderly, geometric, three-dimensional structure; can be classified by shape and by composition. unit cell The smallest arrangement of connected points that can be repeated in three directions to form a crystal lattice. amorphous solid A solid in which particles are not arranged in a regular, repeating pattern that often is formed when molten material cools too quickly to form crystals. colloids
