Gas particles flow freely but are still attracted to each other. This is because the particles are very far apart.

### What is a state of matter when the particles are close together but can move?

If you are asking when particles are "able to move freely" that would be a liquid. If you simply ask about "moving" then that would be a solid, since in a solid the particles are still movings.

### How are particles in liquid arranged?

The particles in a liquid have a weak force between them. They are still close together like the particles in a solid, just more loosely connected. They can freely move and slide past each other. =)

### How do particles move more freely in a gas then a liquid?

Particles in a liquid, such as water molecules (water being the most common liquid that we encounter here on Earth) attract each other; they are loosely bonded together, in a way that freely shifts around to different arrangements, but which still keeps the molecules close together. With a stronger bond the water freezes to become a solid. In a gas, there is no bond, all the molecules of water vapor move freely without any attachment to any other molecules, because they are too far apart and moving too rapidly for any bond to form.

### does juice have a definite shape and volume?

Liquids. ... In a liquid, the particles are still in close contact, so liquids have a definite volume. However, because the particles can move about each other rather freely, a liquid has no definite shape and takes a shape dictated by its container.

### What is a liquid and gas?

a solid is a material where the particles vibrate randomly but never shift significantly in position relative to each othera liquid is a material where the particles move freely with respect to each other but still stay close to each othera gas is a material where the particles move freely with respect to each other and move far apart from each other

### In which of the states of America does the black bear still roam freely?

The black bear still roams freely in 41 of the 50 U.S. states.

### Why do gas particles move around freely?

They really don't. Gas is the least dense state of matter, so the molecules are very spread out. By very spread out i mean still within nanometers of eachother. Unless your talking about an explosion, in which they would, and that is according to the basic laws of physics, every action has a equal and opposite reaction etc etc.

### Are comedians allowed to freely express themselves?

They are still same as people.

### What does the ice do when the glacier stands still?

still flows and carries debris to the end of the glacier

### Are the particles in a solid movig or still?

Still because the particles are so close together that they can't move, unlike a liquid or gas.

### Where does the particles go of water in the ice as the cubes melt?

The particles are still there when ice melts, but they start to drift apart. There are still just as many particles, but they just have more room in between them.
