Three states of matter are common in everyday life: solid, liquid, gas. These are associated with differences in motion, density, and order. State changes are driven by variables temperature and pressure. Temperature changes are associated with changes in microscopic motion of the particles. Here we learn the vocabulary associated with these states, excluding plasmas, Bose condensates, and neutron-degenerate matter which occur in extreme situations such as ultra cold or ultra dense matter.
