SOLID SUGAR PARTICLES
When you mix the sugar into the tea and stir, it dissolves so you can't see it.

Also when you stir the sugar into the tea the taste changes and it turns sweeter.
SOLID;





LIQUID;
Solid particles love each; they are very close together
and organised. Despite they look like they're still, they
actually vibrate.

Solids have their own shape.
Solids are hard because the particles are close together
and you can't move them apart unlike liquids.





Liquid particles grab onto anyone they want to, they aren't
as organised as solids but they don't have as much energy
as gas.

Liquids take any shape.
Liquids can push apart easily. For example, when you're
swimming you are pushing the water particles apart.
Melting and dissolving are two different things as shown in these diagrams.
Melting is when a solid turns to a liquid and dissolving is when a solid mixes
in with a solution.
