# What are the physical properties of solids liquids and gas?

A solid has definite volume and shape, a liquid has a definite volume but no definite shape, and a gas has neither a definite volume nor shape.

## What are the comparison of solid liquid and gas?

Particles in a: gas are well separated with no regular arrangement. liquid are close together with no regular arrangement. solid are tightly packed, usually in a regular pattern.

## How do the physical properties of a gas compare to those of a liquid?

In a gas, the distance between molecules, whether monatomic or polyatomic, is very large compared with the size of the molecules; thus gases have a low density and are highly compressible. In contrast, the molecules in liquids are very close together, with essentially no empty space between them.

## What is the physical properties of solid?

The forces between particles are strong so that the particles cannot move freely but can only vibrate. As a result, a solid has a stable, definite shape, and a definite volume. Solids can only change their shape by force, as when broken or cut.

## What are the physical properties of liquid?

The most obvious physical properties of a liquid are its retention of volume and its conformation to the shape of its container. When a liquid substance is poured into a vessel, it takes the shape of the vessel, and, as long as the substance stays in the liquid state, it will remain inside the vessel.

## How do solids and liquids compare with each other?

1. A solid is a state of matter that has a definite shape and volume while a liquid is a state of matter that has volume but no definite shape. 2. A liquid takes the shape of the container that holds it while a solid has a shape of its own.

## What are 5 properties of liquid?

We hope that these cursory explanations of the nature of liquid characteristics provide a rudimentary understanding of and a curiosity about these five liquid properties: surface tension, consistency, viscosity, contact angle and density.

## Which of the properties is present in gas but not in liquid and solid?

Like liquids, gases have no definite shape, but unlike solids and liquids, gases have no definite volume either.

## What property do liquids and gases have in common?

a. Both liquids and gases have the ability to flow.

## What are the 3 properties of a liquid?

• Liquids have fixed volume, but not fixed shape.
• Particles of Liquids are closely to each other (but not as close as solids)
• Liquid does not fill container completely like gases.
• Liquids are able to flow easily as particles are able to slide over each other.

## What are the 7 properties of gases?

• What are the Properties of Gases? Gasses do not possess any definite volume or shape.
• Compressibility. Particles of gas have huge intermolecular spaces in the midst of them.
• Expansibility. When pressure is exerted on gas, it contracts.
• Diffusibility.
• Low Density.
• Exertion of Pressure.

## What are the 10 properties of liquid?

• Capillary Action.
• Contact Angles.
• Surface Tension.
• Unusual Properties of Water.
• Vapor Pressure.
• Viscosity Viscosity is another type of bulk property defined as a liquid’s resistance to flow.
• Wetting Agents.

## What are the physical properties of gases?

Gases have three characteristic properties: (1) they are easy to compress, (2) they expand to fill their containers, and (3) they occupy far more space than the liquids or solids from which they form.

## What are the 4 properties of a solid?

1) A solid has a definite shape and volume. 2) Solids in general have higher density. 3) In solids, intermolecular forces are strong. 4) Diffusion of a solid into another solid is extremely slow.

## What are the properties of liquids and solids?

solid: Relatively rigid, definite volume and shape. In a solid, the atoms and molecules are closely bonded that they vibrate in place but don’t move around. liquids: Definite volume but able to change shape by flowing. In a liquid, the atoms and molecules are loosely bonded.

## What is the five properties of solid?

Solids have many different properties, including conductivity, malleability, density, hardness, and optical transmission, to name a few.

## What are 3 properties of solids?

• Solid has a fixed shape and a fixed volume.
• Solid cannot be compressed.
• Solids have a high density.
• Force of attraction between the particles in a solid is very strong.
• The space between the particles of solids is negligible.

## What are 5 characteristics of solids?

• solid have a fixed shape and a fixed volume.
• solid cannot be compressed.
• solids have high density.
• force of attraction between the particles is very strong.
• The space between the particles of solids is negligible.

## What are 2 differences between liquid and gas?

Liquid always flows from a higher level to a lower level. Gas molecules have no definite volume and shape. To store gas molecules, it is required to have a closed container. Their molecular attraction is minimum when compared to liquid and solid molecules.

## Why do solids liquids and gases have different properties Class 6?

Answer: The composition of particles makes each state of matter different. As the solid consists of tightly packed molecules, molecules in the liquid are fairly separated from each other, while molecules in a gas are loosely fitted apart from each other.

## What are two properties of solid?

• Solids have definite shape and volume.
• Solids possess rigidity.
• They cannot be compressed.
• The particles are closely packed.
• They cannot flow.

## What are 5 characteristics of gas?

• Gases have neither definite shape nor definite volume. They expand to the size of their container.
• Gases are fluid, and flow easily.
• Gases have low density, unless compressed.
• Gases diffuse (mix and spread out) and effuse (travel through small holes).

## What are the 4 physical measurable properties of a gas?

• (1) The characteristics of gases are described fully in terms of four parameters or measurable properties:
• (i) The volume, V, of the gas.
• (ii) Its pressure, P.
• (iii) Its temperature, T.
• (iv) The amount of the gas (i.e., mass or number of moles).

## What are the properties of solid liquid and gas Class 9?

• Solid: Matters which have fixed volume and shape are called solids.
• Liquid: Matters which have fixed volume but indefinite shape are called liquids.
• Gas: Matters which have indefinite shape and volume are called gases.
• Plasma: It is considered as the fourth state of matter.
