ou have only to think about water to appreciate how different the

three states of matter are. Flying, swimming, and ice skating are all done

in contact with water in its various states. We swim in liquid water and

skate on water in its solid form (ice). Airplanes fly in an atmosphere containing water in the gaseous state (water vapor). To allow these various activities, the arrangements of the water molecules must be significantly different in their gas, liquid, and solid forms.

In Chapter 13 we saw that the particles of a gas are far apart, are in

rapid random motion, and have little effect on each other. Solids are obviously very different from gases. Gases have low densities, have high compressibilities, and completely fill a container. Solids have much greater densities than gases, are compressible only to a very slight extent, and are

rigid; a solid maintains its shape regardless of its container. These properties indicate that the components of a solid are close together and exert

large attractive forces on each other.

The properties of liquids lie somewhere between those of solids and

of gases—but not midway between, as can be seen from some of the properties of the three states of water. For example, it takes about seven times

more energy to change liquid water to steam (a gas) at 100 °C than to melt

ice to form liquid water at 0 °C.

energy required Х 6 kJ/mol

energy required Х 41 kJ/mol

These values indicate that going from the liquid to

the gaseous state involves a much greater change

than going from the solid to the liquid. Therefore,

we can conclude that the solid and liquid states are

more similar than the liquid and gaseous states. This

is also demonstrated by the densities of the three

states of water (Table 14.1). Note that water in its

gaseous state is about 2000 times less dense than in

the solid and liquid states and that the latter two

states have very similar densities.

We find in general that the liquid and solid

states show many similarities and are strikingly different from the gaseous state (see Figure 14.1). The

best way to picture the solid state is in terms of

closely packed, highly ordered particles in contrast

to the widely spaced, randomly arranged particles of

a gas. The liquid state lies in between, but its properties indicate that it much more closely resembles

the solid than the gaseous state. It is useful to picture a liquid in terms of particles that are generally

quite close together, but with a more disordered

arrangement than for the solid state and with some

empty spaces. For most substances, the solid state

has a higher density than the liquid, as Figure 14.1

suggests. However, water is an exception to this rule.

Ice has an unusual amount of empty space and so is less dense than liquid

water, as indicated in Table 14.1.

In this chapter we will explore the important properties of liquids and

solids. We will illustrate many of these properties by considering one of the

earth’s most important substances: water.

14.1 Water and Its Phase Changes


The water we drink often has a

taste because of the substances

dissolved in it. It is not pure


To learn some of the important features of water.

In the world around us we see many solids (soil, rocks, trees, concrete, and

so on), and we are immersed in the gases of the atmosphere. But the liquid

we most commonly see is water; it is virtually everywhere, covering about

70% of the earth’s surface. Approximately 97% of the earth’s water is found

in the oceans, which are actually mixtures of water and huge quantities of

dissolved salts.

Water is one of the most important substances on earth. It is crucial for

sustaining the reactions within our bodies that keep us alive, but it also affects our lives in many indirect ways. The oceans help moderate the earth’s

temperature. Water cools automobile engines and nuclear power plants. Water provides a means of transportation on the earth’s surface and acts as a

medium for the growth of the myriad creatures we use as food, and much


Pure water is a colorless, tasteless substance that at 1 atm pressure

freezes to form a solid at 0 °C and vaporizes completely to form a gas at

100 °C. This means that (at 1 atm pressure) the liquid range of water occurs

between the temperatures 0 °C and 100 °C.

What happens when we heat liquid water? First the temperature of the

water rises. Just as with gas molecules, the motions of the water molecules

increase as it is heated. Eventually the temperature of the water reaches

100 °C; now bubbles develop in the interior of the liquid, float to the surface,

and burst—the boiling point has been reached. An interesting thing happens at the boiling point: even though heating continues, the temperature

stays at 100 °C until all the water has changed to vapor. Only when all of the

water has changed to the gaseous state does the temperature begin to rise

boiling point is longer than the

plateau at the melting point,

because it takes almost seven

times as much energy (and thus

seven times the heating time) to

vaporize liquid water as to melt

ice. Note that to make the

again. (We are now heating the vapor.) At 1 atm pressure, liquid water always

changes to gaseous water at 100 °C, the normal boiling point for water.

The experiment just described is represented in Figure 14.2, which is

called the heating/cooling curve for water. Going from left to right on

this graph means energy is being added (heating). Going from right to left

on the graph means that energy is being removed (cooling).

When liquid water is cooled, the temperature decreases until it reaches

0 °C, where the liquid begins to freeze (see Figure 14.2). The temperature remains at 0 °C until all the liquid water has changed to ice and then begins

to drop again as cooling continues. At 1 atm pressure, water freezes (or, in

the opposite process, ice melts) at 0 °C. This is called the normal freezing

point of water. Liquid and solid water can coexist indefinitely if the temperature is held at 0 °C. However, at temperatures below 0 °C liquid water

freezes, while at temperatures above 0 °C ice melts.

Interestingly, water expands when it freezes. That is, one gram of ice at

0 °C has a greater volume than one gram of liquid water at 0 °C. This has very

important practical implications. For instance, water in a confined space can

break its container when it freezes and expands. This accounts for the bursting of water pipes and engine blocks that are left unprotected in freezing


The expansion of water when it freezes also explains why ice cubes

float. Recall that density is defined as mass/volume. When one gram of liquid water freezes, its volume becomes greater (it expands). Therefore, the

density of one gram of ice is less than the density of one gram of water, because in the case of ice we divide by a slightly larger volume. For example, at

0 °C the density of liquid water is

1.00 g

ϭ 1.00 g/mL

1.00 mL

and the density of ice is

1.00 g

ϭ 0.917 g/mL

1.09 mL

The lower density of ice also means that ice floats on the surface of lakes

as they freeze, providing a layer of insulation that helps to prevent lakes and

rivers from freezing solid in the winter. This means that aquatic life continues to have liquid water available through the winter.

14.2 Energy Requirements for the

Changes of State


Remember that temperature is a

measure of the random motions

(average kinetic energy) of the

particles in a substance.


To learn about interactions among water molecules. • To understand and

use heat of fusion and heat of vaporization.

It is important to recognize that changes of state from solid to liquid and

from liquid to gas are physical changes. No chemical bonds are broken in

these processes. Ice, water, and steam all contain H2O molecules. When water is boiled to form steam, water molecules are separated from each other

(see Figure 14.3) but the individual molecules remain intact.

The bonding forces that hold the atoms of a molecule together are

called intramolecular (within the molecule) forces. The forces that occur

among molecules that cause them to aggregate to form a solid or a liquid are

called intermolecular (between the molecules) forces. These two types of

forces are illustrated in Figure 14.4.

It takes energy to melt ice and to vaporize water, because intermolecular forces between water molecules must be overcome. In ice the molecules

are virtually locked in place, although they can vibrate about their positions.

When energy is added, the vibrational motions increase, and the molecules

eventually achieve the greater movement and disorder characteristic of liquid water. The ice has melted. As still more energy is added, the gaseous state

is eventually reached, in which the individual molecules are far apart and interact relatively little. However, the gas still consists of water molecules. It

would take much more energy to overcome the covalent bonds and decompose the water molecules into their component atoms.

The energy required to melt 1 mole of a substance is called the molar

heat of fusion. For ice, the molar heat of fusion is 6.02 kJ/mol. The energy

required to change 1 mole of liquid to its vapor is called the molar heat of

vaporization. For water, the molar heat of vaporization is 40.6 kJ/mol at

100 °C. Notice in Figure 14.2 that the plateau that corresponds to the vaporization of water is much longer than that for the melting of ice. This occurs because it takes much more energy (almost seven times as much) to vaporize a mole of water than to melt a mole of ice. This is consistent with our

models of solids, liquids, and gases (see Figure 14.1). In liquids, the particles

(molecules) are relatively close together, so most of the intermolecular forces

are still present. However, when the molecules go from the liquid to the

gaseous state, they must be moved far apart. To separate the molecules

enough to form a gas, virtually all of the intermolecular forces must be overcome, and this requires large quantities of energy.

Figure 14.4



Figure 14.3

Both liquid water and gaseous

water contain H2O molecules. In

liquid water the H2O molecules

are close together, whereas in

the gaseous state the molecules

are widely separated. The

bubbles contain gaseous water.









Intramolecular (bonding) forces exist

between the atoms in a molecule and hold

the molecule together. Intermolecular

forces exist between molecules. These are

the forces that cause water to condense

to a liquid or form a solid at low enough

temperatures. Intermolecular forces are

typically much weaker than intramolecular



Whales Need Changes of State

Sperm whales are prodigious divers. They com-

monly dive a mile or more into the ocean, hovering at that depth in search of schools of squid or

fish. To remain motionless at a given depth, the

whale must have the same density as the surrounding water. Because the density of seawater

increases with depth, the sperm whale has a sys-



which is a liquid above 30 °C. At the ocean surface the spermaceti in the whale’s head is a liquid, warmed by the flow of blood through the

spermaceti organ. When the whale dives, this

blood flow decreases and the colder water

causes the spermaceti to begin freezing. Because

solid spermaceti is more dense than the liquid

state, the sperm whale’s density increases as it

dives, matching the increase in the water’s density.* When the whale wants to resurface, blood

flow through the spermaceti organ increases,

remelting the spermaceti and making the whale

more buoyant. So the sperm whale’s sophisticated density-regulating mechanism is based on

a simple change of state.

the liquid state. Water is an important exception.
