Solids have a set volume.

Liquids have a set volume.

Gases do not have a set volume.

Why?

Solids are solids. They don't move. They're in a 'frozen state' as is.

Liquids 'mold' to the shape of their container and they stay there.

Gases are free to go anywhere. Always moving and 'flying.'

Liquids have a definite shape and definite volume. Liquids have no definite shape but have a definite volume. Gases have no definite shape and no definite volume.


Gases have no definite volume or shape! liquids have a definite volume but not shape! And solids are definite all the way around!


Structure. Solids have definite shape and definite volume. Liquids have definite volume but indefinite shape. Gases have both indefinite shape and indefinite volume.


solids can have a definite shape liquids and gases cannot


Solids have definite shape and liquids and gases do not because because gases and liquids take the shape and volume of their containers! :)


Solids: Definite shape and Definite volume Liquids: Indefinite shape and Definite volume Gases: Indefinite shape and Indefinite volume


A property of gases is that gases can be compressed but liquids and solids cannot be compressed. Liquids have a definite volume but do not have a fixed shape. Solids have a definite shape and a definite volume. Gases have neither a fixed shape nor a definite volume. However, you must keep in mind that gases have a limit to which they can be compressed.


Solids have a definite shape and volume. Liquids have a definite volume, but no definite shape - they take the shape of their container. Gases have no definite volume and no definite shape - they expand to fill their entire container.


A gas doesn't have a definite volume OR definite shape


Solids have definite shape and definite volume. Liquids have not definite shape but have definite volume. Gases have neither definite shape not definite volume.


Solids and liquids both have definite volumes. A gas's volume depends on its container.


Solids have a definite shape and definite volume. Liquids have a definite volume, but no definite shape. Gases have neither a definite shape nor definite volume.

Yes; Solids have definite volume and shapes. Gases have indefinite volume and shapes. Liquids have definite volume, indefinite shape.

Liquids. solids have both definite shape and definite volume. gases have neither a definite shape nor a definite volume.


The opposite of definite in volume (solids and liquids) would be indefinite in volume, as in gases, which can vary in volume for a given mass (pressure).


Solids have got definite shape & volume. Liquids have got a definite volume but not a definite shape. Gases do not have either a definite volume or a definite shape.


Liquids and solids are the states of matter that occupy a definite volume. Gases have neither a definite volume nor shape.


All of the above are states of matter. Solids have a definite shape and volume. Liquids have no definite shape, but a definite volume. Gases have no definite shape or volume.


Solids have a definite volume and gases have a variable volume


Solids. Liquids and gases take the shape of the container they're in and the volume of gases changes with pressure and temperature.


Solids are, well, solid, and have a definite shape. Liquids do not have a definite shape (but do have a definite volume), and neither do gasses (but they don't have a definite volume).


The main difference is in the average kinetic energy of the molecules. Gas molecules have the highest, followed by liquids, and then solids have the lowest. Also, gases do not have a definite shape or volume; liquids do not have a definite shape but do have a definite volume; and solids have both a definite shape and a definite volume.


Gases do not have a definite volume, which means that they can be expanded and compressed, depending on the pressure the gas is under. Gases also do not have a definite shape, so they take the shape of whatever container they are in. Unlike gases, liquids do have a definite volume because they are not easily compressed. However, like gases, liquids take the shape of their container, too. Solids have definite volume and definite shape.
