CHEM 111 CASE MOD2
Classifying material as either solids, liquids, or gasses is not always simple. In this module’s essay, you will be exploring this concept and the limitations of categorizing various materials.
In a 1½- to 2-page essay, address each of the following topics:
· Classification helps us categorize different substances based on a set of characteristics. Define the most common characteristics of a solid and a liquid along with examples that fall under each category.
· What are the limitations to categorizing substances in only 3 categories? How is it useful?
· Provide at least two example substances found outside these 3 categories and explain why they are difficult to place in either the liquid, solid, or gas category.
