Abstract:

From the Back Cover: States of Matter is a six-volume set that covers many significant aspects of physical science, including atoms, the structure and properties of matter, the nature of nuclear and chemical reactions, the behavior of matter in motion, and how energy and matter interact within the universe. Designed to complement science curricula, the books present the key concepts, terms, and technologies used by scientists and engineers in dealing with matter in its more common states here on Earth (namely, gaseous, liquid, solid) and matter in its extreme states, such as plasma and Bose-Einstein condensates. One of the three most familiar states of matter (in addition to solids and gases), liquids are relatively rare in the rest of the known universe but can be found in many forms on Earth. Liquid Matter discusses the most important characteristics and properties of several important liquids, including water, blood, and oil. Liquids and gases are both classified in a larger group of substances called fluids, and a discussion of the ways in which fluids have proven to be a cornerstone of human development is included. This book also illustrates the impact of liquids on relevant societal issues, such as the harnessing of water for use in sanitation systems and the ongoing struggle of delivering clean water to poorer areas of the world. The volume also includes information on acid rain; early concepts of matter; volcanoes, hot springs, and geysers; Archimedes; Earth's hydrologic cycle; water, physical and chemical properties of; cryogenics and fluid science. The book contains more than 60 color photographs and four-color line illustrations, sidebars, the periodic table, a chronology, a glossary, a detailed list of print and Internet resources, and an index. States of Matter is essential for high school students, teachers, and general readers who wish to learn about the discovery and use of matter and all its intriguing properties.
