Synonyms of "Collapse" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre collapse e fall down ?
A: Also I might add that "collapse" is a more dramatic form of "fall down".
ex
That bookshelf fell down but we picked it back up and it was fine.

That bookshelf collapsed and broke so we have to buy a new one.


Also a person can fall down and be okay or have minor injuries whereas if a person collapsed they may have fainted and need medical attention.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre collapse e faint e pass out ?
A: To collapse could be to fall or suddenly lose strength because of something physical (like a twisted ankle) or because a person was emotionally overwhelmed, (or for many reasons).
To faint and pass out are similar, but you could "pass out" in a literal way (from drinking too much alcohol or being in the sun too long) or just be really tired and say "I passed out the minute my head hit the pillow."
Usually if you faint it is due to over-heating, a loss-of-blood, or some kind of physical weakness. When you faint, usually you get dizzy and "light-headed," feeling the blood drain from your face prior to fainting. In past centuries women used to faint often because their corsets were laced so tightly it was easy to become oxygen-deprived! Fainting can be called "passing out" but "passing out" is a more general term used for more situations.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre collapse e crumble e fall apart ?
A: collapse - to fall down: a building can collapse, or a person can collapse (to faint or your legs just give up. NOT the same as trip!)

crumble - To break apart into smaller pieces: A cookie can crumble into smaller pieces. (thats why they're called "crumbs"). A building can still crumble because it can start to break apart (from time) and fall.

Fall Apart - its kind of the same as both. to break apart and fall down. this one is used figuratively a lot:
"My plans fell apart"
"our friendship is falling apart"
"he fell apart from the pressure"

😄
Q: Qual é a diferença entre collapse e faint ?

Q: Qual é a diferença entre collapse e disintegration ?
A: collapse = fall down suddenly / breaks
disintegrate = it vanishes, it disappears

'Disintegration' is more extreme than 'collapse'.
