Solids, Liquids and Gases 02
In order to smell, particles from the object must enter your nose. These particles are gas.

Solids, Liquids and Gases 02

Let's dive into the world of matter with this second KS2 Science quiz! It's all about solids, liquids, and gases - from how particles behave to what gases make up the air.

In science, we learn about three types of matter: solid, liquid, and gas. They each act differently - you can't cut a gas or pour a solid! Matter can change its state, like gas turning into liquid. This happens because particles in gases have more energy. Heating them up makes particles move, turning ice to water and water to steam.

Test your knowledge with this cool KS2 Science quiz on the amazing states of matter!

1.
Can sugar become a liquid?
Yes, when it is heated to a very high temperature
Yes, when it is heated to 100° Celsius
Sometimes, depending on what type of sugar it is
Sugar can never become liquid
Sugar becomes liquid at around 186° C - heating sugars to such high temperatures is how sweets are made
2.
In order to smell, particles from the object must enter your nose. In which state of matter are these particles?
Solid
Liquid
Gas
Liquid or gas
You breathe the gas in through your nose and detect any smell which pass through
3.
Although air is made up of several gases, the two main ones are nitrogen and which other?
Helium
Oxygen
Carbon dioxide
Methane
Animals - including people - need oxygen to breathe!
4.
What is water called when it is a gas?
Helium
Carbon dioxide
Nitrogen
Water vapour
Water vapour is also called steam. Steam is invisible - what you see rising from a kettle or a pan are water droplets in the air
5.
When a material is heated, what happens to its particles?
They lose energy and become more strongly attached (attracted) to other particles
They gain energy and become less strongly attached (attracted) to other particles
They begin to stick together
They stop moving
Heat gives energy to the particles and makes them vibrate or move
6.
Which of the following describes what happens when water evaporates?
Gravity causes the water to run downhill and disappear
The water gradually becomes solid and these solids break away from the liquid
The water doesn't exist any longer
Particles gain enough energy to break free from the liquid's surface
If a particle gets enough energy it leaves the liquid. Particles like this form gases
7.
In warmer temperatures, how do particles of any material move?
More slowly
More quickly
Alternately slowly and quickly
Particles never change how they move
Warmer particles have more energy
8.
In cooler temperatures, how do the particles of any material move?
More slowly
More quickly
Alternately slowly and quickly
Particles never change how they move
Cooler particles have less energy
9.
A sweet fizzy drink contains what?
Solid only
Liquid only
Gas only
Solid, liquid and gas
Sweetened fizzy drinks contain solid (sugar), liquid (water) and gas (carbon dioxide)
10.
What is solid water called?
Magma
Dry ice
Ice
Water vapour
When water is placed in the freezer, it becomes a solid - ice
