Why can solid retain its shape?

A gas is a substance whose molecules are in constant, rapid, random motion. As a result, a gas will spread out and take on the shape and volume of whatever container it is in-whether a jar, a room, or the atmosphere! This is very different from a liquid or a solid. The molecules in a liquid do not move as fast as those in a gas. A liquid can take on the shape of its container but will keep the same volume, no matter what container it is in. The molecules in a solid just vibrate in place. That is why a solid will retain both its shape and its volume.


Does gas has definite volume and definite shape?

No, a specific amount of gas has neither a definite volume or a definite shape. In contrast, a liquid has a definite volume but not a definite shape and a solid has both a definite volume and a definite shape.

How do shape and volume defer with solids liquids and gasses?

both are fixed (unless acted upon by outside forces) in a solid; volume is fixed but shape is malleable in a liquid; and both are malleable in a gas.


The state of matter that has a definite and a definite volume?

im assuming that you meant definite shape and definite volume, in which case it would be a solid. Water has a definite volume, but not shape; and a gas has indefinite for both


What takes a shape of the container solid liquid or gas?

A gas and a liquid will both take the shape of their container. However only a gas will take on the volume of its container as well.


Which substance expand on cooling?
