Kinetic Model Of Matter

taught by Math Arena

Course description


This course is targeted at Singapore Cambridge GCE O level students, but is also relevant to IGCSE students and Singapore's Integrated program students.

Solids, liquids and gases couldn't be more different. Or could they? It turns out there's something that everything we can see and touch has in common - they're made up of tiny particles, and it's the behaviour of these particles that determines their characteristics. So if you've ever wondered what happens when solid ice melts to form liquid water, maybe it's a good idea to check on what these small particles are doing...

Course Content

You will learn:

  • What happens to the structure of a substance when it melts, freezes, boils or condenses
  • Where pressure comes from
  • How to make a balloon shrink without having to touch it
  • How an odor spreads through a room

Course Prerequisites

You will need to know:

  • That everything around us is made up of really really small particles
  • How to watch videos on your computer
