Apologia General Science: Atomic Motion Experiment

Apologia General Science 8th Grade
Module 1

Atomic Motion
Experiment 1.2

Atomic vibration is the continual movement of atoms and molecules that are contained within everything in the universe. Atomic vibration occurs when heat accelerates the atoms and causes them to break atomic bonds. This in turn causes a solid to turn into a gas or liquid.

By seeing how food coloring gets distributed through two jars of water at different temperatures (one hot, one cold), we collected evidence for the fact that atoms are in constant motion.
