    Example:  If you take a hot shower, steam rises (liquid to a gas)
                    If you have a pool, the water evaporates and you have to add water to it (liquid to a gas)
                    If you burn a candle the wax melts (solid to a liquid)
    Find 5 examples of your own, not the ones I have listed.

       What did you observe happening in the cups?
       Did a phase change or phase changes occur?  Is so which one or ones?
     This is your prediction of what molecules look like (before we do the simulation)
    Wednesday September 4
