No. The elasticity of the solids is a liquid kind of character. The non newtonian fluids provide a solid kind of character. As everything is just electromagnetism, you can split your thoughts down the an single atom level, and play it with magnets on real scale. You can push your hands between magnets, and you can make them flow. In the wikipedia ...
Can a single particle be “heated” by radiation? Not really, because heat is an emergent macroscopic property of an ensemble of particles. But since you put the word "heated" in quotes, we can allow a yes of sorts. Take a look at the Wikipedia temperature page, where we can see this picture: CCASA image by Greg L, see Wikipedia It's to do with the ...
A single particle can be a 'system' within itself having modes depending on the particle ' s structure. These modes may be in 'tune' with the incident radiation and thus capture the energy which can increase the particle ' s momentum and therefore its velocity. We never say the particle's temperature has increased but rather it's momentum. When a system of ...
Phase and random kinetic energy are macro. If you don't call the kinetic energy of a single molecule temperature then fine but it is still kinetic energy. In a single molecule you have rotation and vibration that can be effected by radiation. You can have an exited state where an electron is temporarily bumped to a higher orbit. Some reactions only take ...
Physical state means the arrangement of particles. So particles are the base of one's physical state. Particles on itself can't have a specific physical state.
If we de ionise sun it would re ionise itself into older star due to huge gravity due to mass. we can only stop its fusion in its some parts and remove them which would give us gaseous hydrogen which we have to liquefy in low pressure and temperature
