Gases are all around us The study of gases provides an excellent example of the scientific method in Gases Gas: One of the three distinct physical states of matter. Gases can be distinguished from the the other states of matter (liquid and solid) by: -Having a relatively low density and viscosity - Responds drastically to its environment: the is a relatively great expansion/contraction with changes in pressure and temperature -Readily diffuse -Exerts pressure on its surroundings. - Spontaneous tendency to become distributed uniformly throughout any container A gas uniformly fills any container, is easily compressed Gases Gas: One of the three distinct physical states of matter. Gases can be distinguished from the the other states of matter (liquid and solid) by: -Having a relatively low density and viscosity - Responds drastically to its environment: the is a relatively great expansion/contraction...
