The following activity shows that particles of matter have spaces between them;

  • Take a glass and fill half of it with water. Add a spoon of sugar and stir it with a glass rod. 
  • In a short while you will notice that the sugar has completely disappeared.
  • This is because the particles of sugar get into the spaces between the particles of water.

This proves that matter is made up of particles and they have spaces between them.
