Neither. Fire is a process, not a physical object. When you burn wood, the reaction is actually happening between the wood and oxygen in the air to form carbon dioxide and water vapor. Wood is a solid, but oxygen, carbon dioxide and water vapor are all gases. If you have a gas powered stove, you are burning a gas called methane (or maybe propane). There everything is a gas. So fire is not a solid or a gas, but it is the name for a type of reaction that can involve both solids and gases (and liquids too in fact).

If you mean the flame that you see as being fire you would be wrong. Flame is the result of fire.Fire is the combination of heat and a combustible material. A good example of this is the burning cigarette.

fire is a chemical reaction (oxidation), so it cannot be classified as a state of matter (solid, liquid, gas)

General classes of colloids are: gas in liquid, gas in solid, liquid in gas, liquid in liquid, liquid in solid, solid in gas, solid in liquid, solid in solid.

These nine types of solution are solid to solid solid to liquid solid to gas liquid to solid liquid to liquid liquid to gas gas to solid gas to liquid gas to gas

solid ==> liquid solid ==> gas liquid ==> solid liquid ==> gas gas ==> solid gas ==> liquid

from liquid to solid, from gas to liquid, from solid to liquid, from solid to gas, from liquid to gas, from gas to plasma, etc.

Solid to Gas ~ Sublimation Solid to Liquid ~ Fusion Liquid to Solid ~ Solidification Liquid to Gas ~ Evaporation Gas to Solid ~ Solid Condensation Gas to Liquid ~ Liquid Condensation

Yes. The solvent and solute in a solution can be solid, liquid or gas. You can have: A gas dissolved in a gas (air). A gas dissolved in a solid (hydrogen in metal). A solid in a solid (alloys). or ones containing liquid: gas in liquid liquid in liquid solid in liquid liquid in solid

Perhaps you meant to ask whether fire is a gas, liquid, or solid. Is that what you meant?

evaporation solid to liquid - melting liquid to gas - evaporation gas to liquid - condensation liquid to solid - freezing solid to gas and gas to solid - sublimation

Mixing of a solid liquid or gas with a liquid or something a gas or solid? is a solution

ANSWER:- There are nine types of solution:- (1). Gas of Gas. (2).Gas of Liquid. (3).Gas of Solid. (4).Liquid of Gas. (5).Liquid of Liquid. (6).Liquid of Solid. (7).Solid of Solid. (8).Solid of Liquid. (9).Solid of Gas.

A deposition is a change of state ether from a gas to a solid, liquid to solid, solid to gas, solid to liquid, liquid to gas or gas to liquid.

Solid to liquid: melting Liquid to solid: freezingLiquid to gas: vaporization Gas to liquid: condensation

The matter definition of fire is plasma. It is neither a solid, liquid, nor gas.

liquid in liquid, gas in liquid, liquid in solid, gas in gas, gas in solid, solid in solid, solid in liquid

It is not a solid, liquid or gas.

The only reason you are asking that question is because you're dumb
