pressure will not affect the volume of solids

to the gases:The pressure increases, the gas volume will reduce;

The pressure reduces , the gas volume will increase

How can volume be used to separate solids and gases?

Solids have a definite volume and gases have a variable volume

How does this change in volume affect the density of solids liquids and gases?

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.

Does change in pressure affect the solubility of solids?

Gases are compressible, whereas solids are not compressible <3

How do temperature and pressure affect the solubility of solids and gases in water?

as tempressure decrease and pressure increase the solubility of gases in water increase.

State in which matter has definite shape volume?

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?

Unlike solids, gases can expand and change volume.

What is the opposite of definite in 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).

What are the 3 factors that affect how gases behave?

volume pressure and temperature

How can pressure change the density of solids liquids and gases?

Pressure can change the volume of all three (to varying degrees) and density = mass (which doesn't change) divided by volume.

What two main factors determine if a substance exists as a solid liquid or gas?

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.

What item has a fixed volume solids liquids or gases?

solids and liquids

Do solids liquids and gases have a definite volume?

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.'

What shape and volume properties do gases and liquids and solids have?

solids can have a definite shape liquids and gases cannot

How does the change in the volume affect the density of solids liquids and gases?

Because when the volume of an object,liquid,or gas Exspand then the density changes Mass/Volume= Density

What can affect an experiment outcome?

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?)

What affect liquid density?

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.

What do solids liquids and gases have that are different?

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

What happens to the volume of solids liquids and gases when they cool?

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

How do you describe the volume of gases?

The volume of gases depends on the temperature and pressure.

What are some examples of how gases are different from liquids and solids?

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

Which is a characteristic of gases that distinguishes them from liquids and solids?

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.

Why are solids less effected by pressure than liquids or gases are?

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

If you wanted to predict how temperature will affect the volume of gas what other factor must be held constant?

To predict how temperature will affect the volume of a gas, pressure must remain constant. Volume in gases decreases with increase in pressure.

Do P waves travel faster through gases solids or liquids?

Liquids. P waves travel fastest through solids due to its volume. Gases volume is infinte

Is capacity only measured in liquid volume?

Also solids and gases can be measured in volume.
