Solids have a definite volume and gases have a variable volume
the change in volume affects the density of solids, liquids , and gases by when the volume of a liquid , solid . or gas expands the density changes.
Gases are compressible, whereas solids are not compressible <3
as tempressure decrease and pressure increase the solubility of gases in water increase.
Solids. Liquids and gases take the shape of the container they're in and the volume of gases changes with pressure and temperature.
Unlike solids, gases can expand and change 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).
volume pressure and temperature
Pressure can change the volume of all three (to varying degrees) and density = mass (which doesn't change) divided by volume.
gases have no shape,volume water has volume but no shape solids have shape and volume gases have the most intermolecular space solids have least inter molecular space <><><><><> Temperature and pressure.
solids and liquids
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.'
solids can have a definite shape liquids and gases cannot
Because when the volume of an object,liquid,or gas Exspand then the density changes Mass/Volume= Density
this might not be for every experiment, it still affects many. -temperature - concentration (chemicals/ liquids) -pressure (for gases) -volume (liquids/gases) -mass (solids) - equipment and materials (especially scales) - you measurements (how accurate are you?)
Pressure and Temperature will affect volume and thus also density. However the effect is much smaller than on gases (about 100-1000 times), it is mostly a bit bigger than the effect on solids.
Structure. Solids have definite shape and definite volume. Liquids have definite volume but indefinite shape. Gases have both indefinite shape and indefinite volume.
Solids- stays the same Liquids- stays the same Gases- decreases You can use the formula PV/T=P2V2/T2 P=initial pressure V=initial volume T=initial temp P2=final pressure V2=final volume T2=final temp
The volume of gases depends on the temperature and pressure.
Gases have no definite volume or shape! liquids have a definite volume but not shape! And solids are definite all the way around!
A gas takes the shape and volume of its container - it has variable pressure. Liquids only take the shape of the container with (nearly) constant volume, while solids have a rigid shape.
Solids are less changed in volume by pressure than fluids (liquids or gasses or plasmas) because the atoms or molecules in solids are more closely bound by the chemical bonds that form them. JCF
To predict how temperature will affect the volume of a gas, pressure must remain constant. Volume in gases decreases with increase in pressure.
Liquids. P waves travel fastest through solids due to its volume. Gases volume is infinte
Also solids and gases can be measured in volume.
