Why does a container with no liquid or solid not be empty?
It has air inside and other substances which we cannot see with our naked eye. Air is matter so unless the container is a vacuum it will not be empty.
Fluids (liquids and gases) have no definite shape, so to properly measure a fluid's mass, you have to first mass an empty container, then a container with the necessary amount of the liquid, then subtract the mass of the container. With a solid you can simply measure the mass.
The solid has a form. The liquid has the form of the container. A gas hasn't form and expand in a container..
liquid take shape of the container because the liquid particles stay together but they still more around. solid does not take the shape of the container, because solid is solid. The molecules cannot form the of the container because the molecules a very near each other.Only liquid can take the shape of the container. Thank you.
because solid are rigid while liquid are not
the gas condenses to become liquid in the solid container
'''''Decantation''''' is a fast method for separating a mixture of a liquid and a heavier solid. In this process , first the solid impurities are allowed to sediment at the bottom of the container. Then, the pure liquid is poured out carefully from the container into another container. The precipitate or solid is left behind at the bottom of the container.
They are three of the four normal phases of matter (the fourth being plasma).
An ice cube is solid. As it melts, the liquid water joins the liquid in the container and takes the shape of the container.
no only a liquid takes the shape of its container. A gas just gets pushed into the container.
How is finding the density of liquids different from finding the density of regular and irregular solids?
Since a liquid has no definite shape or form, it needs to be held in a container. Density = mass / volume So you need a container with graduated markings so that you can measure the volume of the liquid, also, you need the mass of the empty container. You will need to subtract the mass of the empty container from the total mass (liquid and container) to find the mass of the liquid.
A solid has a form. A liquid has the form of the container. A gas expand without a container. Plasma is an ionized matter at high temperature.
A solid has a fixed shape and a fixed volume. A liquid has a fixed volume, but assumes the shape of its container. A gas assumes both the shape and volume of its container.
Kind of, a solid is something that doesn't take the shape of the container it's in. For example if you put a stone in an ice-cream container it doesn't take the shape of it as a liquid would therefore it is a solid. A small container in a larger container could be a solid though.
liquid because it takes the shape of the container
The differences between a solid, liquid and gas are simple! A solid is an object that has a set volume, and is hard to compress. A liquid will take the shape of its container, but is hard to compress. A gas will take the shape of its container, and is easy to compress.
a solid is different from a liquid in shape and volume because a solid has a fixed shape and a liquid is not a fixed shape and it takes shape of its container.
A solid has its own form, a liquid has the form of a container, a gas has no form.
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.
It is different because, liquid water can (and will) take the form of the container it is in. We can also change the form of liquid water, unlike solid ice. Solid Ice wont take the form of the container it is in and we cant change its form without breaking it.
One tube from the hand pump should be placed inside of the liquid that is to be siphoned. The other tube should be placed in an empty bucket or other container. The pump should then be squeezed and released to move the liquid from the container that it is currently in into the other empty container.
As Ketchup will change its shape based on the container its in (otherwise you wouldn't be able to push it out of the hole in the container - it is a liquid
A solid has an independent form. A liquid has the form of the container. A gas hasn't a form.
This is a liquid or a granulated solid.
Of the three states of matter...solid, liquid, or gas...only a solid wouldn't need a container.
Jam is a solid because it holds its shape outside of the container. if it is not set up properly, it could be a liquid.
Solid is rigid one and has a definite shape. But liquid is a fluid ie capable of flowing. It gets the shape of the container in which it is kept.
Tomato sauce is a liquid. It takes the shape of its container.
Gases occupy the entire volume of a container.
The liquid molecules are loosely bounded and may move within the bulk in the form of clusters, when a liquid is put in a container its weight and atmospheric pressure push them downwards so they enter inti empty spaces of container an acquire the shape of container.
because the other half is not empty it is filled with gas
A solid has a fixed volume and form. A liquid has a fixed volume but has the form of a container. A gas has not a fixed volume or form.
The empty space could be filled with liquid or solid matter.
No its a liquid because it takes the shape of it's container
no it is a liquid, it will slowly shape itself to the container.
A liquid - but the shape is that of the container.
How is the density of a small solid sample whose mass and volume is difficult to measure is determined?
Use a container with a liquid (water). Mark the level of the liquid on the container. Insert the small solid sample. Mark the level of the liquid now on the container. compute the difference between the two marks. You can use traditional computation for calculating volume.
in order to keep from spilling everywhere because liquid can't sustain a form without a solid around it or being frozen into a solid
Measure the mass of an empty dry container (beaker, vial, etc.) then add the liquid and reweigh. Then you find the mass of the liquid by subtracting the mass of the dry container from the combined mass.
A liquid. A gas has no definite volume, as it's volume is whatever the volume of the container it is in happens to be. A solid, by it's nature of being solid, will not take on the shape of it's container.
because it doesnt have any characteristics of a liquid or gas. it doesnt flow and it doesnt take the shape of the container. however when you put al the ingrediants in it is a liquid and it does take the shape of the container but when you cook it the mix hardens and becomes a solid.
If A scientist places 25 ml of a yellow substance into a 50 ml container the substance quickly fills the entire container is it a solid liquid or gas?
liquid because the yellow substance takes the form of the container.
Decanting can be used o separate a liquid from an insoluble solid. As the solid settles to the bottom of the container, the liquid can be carefully poured into another container leaving the solid (sediment) behind. Decanting can also be used to separate two immiscible liquids like oil and vinegar.
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… Read More
a gas is like a liquid so it will fill any container you put it in, a solid won't because its a matter.
A solid (as opposed to a liquid or gas).
Water expands when it freezes and the container is less flexible at lower temperatures.
Liquid is one of the three classical states of matter. Like a gas, a liquid is able to flow and take the shape of a container, but, like a solid, it resists compression. Unlike a gas, a liquid does not disperse to fill every space of a container, and maintains a fairly constant density. A distinctive property of the liquid state is surface tension, leading to wetting phenomena. The density of a liquid is usually… Read More
a liquid has molecules that flow around faster than a solid and it takes the shape of it's container, unlike a solid, and you can feel and see liquid unlike gas. Liquid can also change to three of the four states of matter naturally (solid,gas,liquid,and plasma), a rare quality for a state of matter.
A liquid takes the shape of any solid that it is contained within. For example water within a square container will appear square, but water within a triangular container will appear triangular.
