Why does a liquid take the shape of the bottom of its container?
Because water is liquid therefore doesn't have a definite shape, unlike the ice cube which is solid now a and has a definite volume and shape and is already fit to shape its c…urrent container.
because the particles aren't packed tight like a solid so it keeps it shape in the container
The molecules of liquids and gasses are not tightly arranged or packed. It is due to this arrangement they can move freely. Thus, take the shape of the container. Whereas in s…olids the molecules are tightly arranged they don't have place to move. Thus ,they don't take the shape of the container.
In a solid the particles are in a regular patten and are packed tightly together so it doesn't take the shape of it's container. The particles in liquids and gases are more sp…read out and able to move and bounce against the sides of the container. Basically since they are more spread out the can move and change shape. I'm pretty sure this is right. .
YES. that's one of the properties of being a liquid.
Does the constant motion of the particles in a liquid cause the liquid to take the shape of its container?
Yes, pressure in the liquid caused by its molecules constantly being in motion force it to take on the shape of its container (within limits).
they take the shape of a container because the liquid particles stay together but they still move around. Liquid is a fluid & fluid can't resist shear stress. they will contin…uously deform or change its shape even a small amount of shear force act. that is why they acquire the shape of the body in which the poured to come into stable position.
It Keeps The Same Volume. -Daija.
The particles of a liquid are not chemically bound to the other particles (the particles are generally molecules) around them. They do have some attraction for the other parti…cles, which is why they are a liquid rather than a gas, however, the attraction applies equally to all the particles in the liquid, rather than being a specific attachment to neighboring particles. Consequently the particles move independently of each other, which makes liquids shapeless and able to be poured and to take the shape of a container.
I think because the liquid, unlike the solid, has molecules with more space which they can move around in. The liquid can take the shape of its container probably because of t…he same fact, unlike the solid, since the liquid molecules have more space between, they can move freely in a container and they can take its shape without the water escaping. Gases can escape through small openings in the container lid and unlike the liquid, could escape from the container. The liquid has just the right amount of space in between each molecule such that they couldn't escape through these openings which the gases could escape to. In other words, liquids do not have a definite shape.
How do the particles of a liquid are able to pour into a container and take on the shape of the container?
If you pour a liquid into a container, it will take the shape of the container, provided none overflows. Under the influence of gravity, a liquid will stay in an open containe…r, such as a cup.
Yes.....since the molecules have more energy than a solid (move around more and are further apart) they are able to slide past one another, making them fluid. This allows them… to take the shape of their container.
Yes, liquids have a definite volume, but no definite shape so they will stay the same volume and take the shape of the container they are in.
Because a solid is.. well, solid. Liquids morph, because they aren't "hard"
Why can a liquid expand to take the shape of its container but NOT expand to fill the container itself?
because the particles of a liquid are held together loosely enough to flow, but not so loose that they expand.
Gravity. The gravitational pull of the Earth will exert a force on anything with a mass and pull it towards the centre of the Earth. As we're essentially standing on the surfa…ce of a sphere, the centre of the Earth is pretty much straight down and gravity will pull liquids to the bottom of any container.
