Why does a liquid take the shape of the bottom of its container?
Yes because its atoms are tightly packed so it has volume but no definite form.
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.
Because the atoms of the substance are able to spread out and move freely.
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.
Because liquids do not have their own shape of matter.
YES. that's one of the properties of being a liquid.
Yes, the shape of a liquid takes on the container's shape.
The liquid molecules are loosely bounded and may move within the bulk in the form of clusters, when a liquid is put in a container its weight and atmospheric pressure push the…m downwards so they enter inti empty spaces of container an acquire the shape of container.
In a liquid, the molecules are free to slide past each other; thus, the liquid doesn't have a fixed shape. When there is gravity, the individual parts of the liquid will tend …to go down - until it meets something that holds it back, like 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. .

as there are less inter molecular space between them they do not have a definite shape and so the liquids do not have any shape so if we pore it to any container it takes the… shape of the container.

because solid are rigid while liquid are not
They have no form of their own, so must take on the shape of the container.
A liquid can take the shape of the bottom of its container.
The particles that make up the liquid are close enough that they slide around one another, but too far apart to be a solid. The sliding motion of the particles allows them to …flow, which allows the liquid to take the shape of its container.
