that's solid state. a solid has got the following characteristics : definite shape, definite volume, and cannot be compressed

Does a solid have a volume

By volume liquid can occupy the shape of the container ,but has got a fixed volume unless and until subjected to expansion by change in temperature and pressure. that way it is also compressible. but on the other hand solid has got fixed volume and fixed shape. it is less compressible. this is how they are different..

The volume of a solid is constant this is true.

The volume of a solid depends on the temperature.

Yes, a solid has a definite volume.

The volume and shape of a solid is fixed.

You multiply base by height times length or depth and you got yourself a volume.

Volume of a regular solid can be calculated by immersing it fully in a measuring beaker containing water. The volume of the solid will be equal to the volume of the water displaced(volume of water after immersing the solid -(minus) volume of the water before immersing the solid in water).

The easiest way to measure the volume of an irregularly shaped solid is to use a graduated cylinder and a liquid which does NOT dissolve the solid to be measured. Pour sufficient liquid to cover the solid (an eyeball estimate.) Note the volume of the liquid. Then place the solid into the cylinder with the liquid, and note the volume. The additional volume, i.e., the volume before adding the solid, is then subtracted from the new volume. The difference is the volume of your solid sample.

Yes, a solid does not occupy less sapce when it is pressed or squeezed. It cannot be compressed. The volume of a solid does not change. A solid has a fixed or definite volume.

The volume of a solid is measured in cubic units

Yes. A definite shape - which implies a definite volume - is one of the basic properties of a solid.

the volume of the solid would go down , thus making the solid into a liquid.

Definite shape and volume is a state that defines solid.

you multiply the length times width times height and you should get the volume. If the solid is of uneven shape, immerse it in the known volume of water and note the increase in volume of water due to inclusion of solid. This extra volume of water created by displacement is the volume of that solid.

The volume of an irregularly shaped solid can be measured by placing the solid in a known quantity of water in a container with measurement markings. Take the new volume and find the difference between this and the old volume. This is the volume of your irregularly shaped solid.

A metric ruler is used to measure the volume of a solid

Measure the volume of the water you have. Insert irregular solid. Measure the volume of the water you have now, and subtract the initial water volume from the new water volume. The difference in volumes is the volume of your irregular solid.

You place it in water to see the volume of water it displaces. Fill a large, graduated measuring cylinder to about halfway with water (say to 50mL) Put the irregular solid in, and measure the volume it reads (solid + water). (say it reads 80mL) So the volume of the irregular solid will be: volume(solid+water) - volume(water). For example, the volume of the water was 50mL, and when the solid was added, the volume increased to 80mL. The volume of the solid would be 80mL - 50mL. So it would be 30mL.

Well true solid has a definite shape and volume because solid suppose to have definite shape and volume, liquid has only definite volume and gas no definite shape or volume.

If the solid is square or rectangular in shape, you can measure the three dimensions and multiply them to get volume in cubic units, such as cubic centimeters. If the solid is an irregular shape, you will need to use water displacement to measure the volume. To do this you place enough water in a graduated cylinder that will cover the solid. Then record the water volume. Next, carefully place the solid into the cylinder. Measure the new water volume. The volume of the solid is the second water volume minus the original water volume.
