Water can exist in all 3 states, liquid, solid and gas. At room temperature, water is liquid. When it is below zero degrees celsius, it becomes ice, a solid. When it is above 100 degrees celsius, it becomes steam, a gas.

Can a mixture exist in all three states of matter?
For substances, the temperature and pressure at which all three states of matter exist in thermodynamic equilibrium is called the triple point. However, a mixture would have two or more different substances with different melting and boiling points, meaning the triple point of each would be different. See related link below for more information. ...

Is matter an element compound or mixture?
Matter is the general name given to any material or substance on Earth. Usually we read statements like: "All matter is made up of atoms". Another statement in science texts is: "Matter is anything with mass". So water is matter, air is matter, oxygen is matter. They all have mass. Water is a compound, air is a mixture and oxygen is an element. Matter can be an element, or a compound, or a mixture. ...

What are the four states of matter and properties they all share?
Well the four states of matter are: Liquid, Solid, Gas and Plasma (the first 3 states are the main ones) and they all occupy space, they can all have colours and obviously they're all matter, in different forms. ...
Asked in Science
Why do all states of matter have molecules?
All states of matter do not necessarily have molecules. The noble gases consist of individual atoms, and ionic compounds consist of ions, or formula units. All states of matter must contain atoms, molecules, or ions, because matter is made of atoms, molecules, and ions. ...
